Carson RP-100SP overview

  • 1Description

Designed as an entry-level scope, Carson Optic's RP-100SP RedPlanet 76mm f/9 Reflector AZ Telescope gives users a competent aperture and long focal length to make detailed observations of the Moon, planets, planetary moons, and bright deep-sky objects like galaxies and star clusters. In addition to its manual alt-azimuth mount, this complete rig includes two eyepieces, a 10x30 finderscope, and an adjustable aluminum tripod so you are ready to start observing right out of the box. To increase its usability, the eyepieces and finderscope feature integrated erecting prisms that correct the views through them to allow the scope's use as a powerful terrestrial spotting scope. Carson also provides a universal smartphone adapter that allows you to capture pictures and video of your observation sessions and share, stream, or post to social media quickly and easily.
