Reflectors

Explore Scientific has an extensive line of reflecting telescopes that are perfect for deep sky observing. A reflector uses mirrors to gather and focus light. Light enters the telescope through its open front end and travels to the concave primary mirror at the back. From there the light is reflected back up the tube to a flat secondary mirror, which sits at a 45° angle in relation to the eyepiece. Light bounces off of this secondary mirror and out through the eyepiece. Our reflector options include traditional Newtonian telescopes in a wide range of sizes and large aperture Dobsonians that are simple to set up and great for astronomy outreach.
