Refurbished Second Light

The Second Light program offers a wide variety of telescopes with little mileage that are guaranteed to perform optically and mechanically. These items are still held to the same stringent guidelines set forth by our Quality Control Staff.

These items may have been show stock, sales samples or even ones that were never used but have a slight cosmetic imperfection. Regardless, upon registration, they are backed with our transferable Explore Star Warranty, the same warranty that is given for any new Explore Scientific product.
