Designed as a competent entry-level scope, Carson Optic's RP-300SP Red Planet 114mm f/8 Reflector EQ Telescope gives users a large aperture and long focal length to make detailed observation of the Moon, planets, and planetary moons — as well as the capability to reach out beyond our solar system to see bright spectacles such as galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters. In addition to its manual German equatorial mount with slow motion cables, this complete rig includes two eyepieces, a finderscope, and an adjustable aluminum tripod so you are ready to start observing right out of the box.
