Explore FirstLight


Jessica Santascoy uses her Explore FirstLight AR102 with a safe solar filter to observe the rare 2019 Transit of Mercury across the face of the Sun during her astronomy outreach event in New York:
"The telescope 🔭 and lenses made for clear, easy viewing of Mercury. I looked at the Transit through a couple of other scopes and they weren’t nearly as crisp and clear as they were through my Explore Scientific USA #telescope❤️my ES scope." - Jessica Santascoy
