The AC 102/660 refractor, with its relatively large aperture and short focal length, is ideal for a view of big sky areas at low magnification. Wide-stretched objects, such as open star clusters, the Orion nebula and the Andromeda galaxy can be surveyed. It’s also great for hunting comets. During certain phases of activity these can be as large as the full Moon or even bigger, and can be easily observed with this refractor.
Thanks to the short focal length this refractor telescope is compact and the eyepiece is set relatively high.
