What should I expect? 

The Kson A102G is a standout refractor, an amazing visual instrument.  As a true 102mm refractor, is offers to show you a huge amount of objects in excellent detail.  The 20mm extra aperture, compared to the 80mm might not sound like much, but it allows in significantly more light compared to an 80mm.  Despite it’s exceptional 102mm aperture, with the dew shield retracted, it is a mere 700mm in length and is not difficult to handle.  It’s f/6.86 focal ratio means it also enjoys more flexibility in working well with different types of eyepieces than an f/5 and controls chromatic aberrations better.

You will need a good mount to make optimal use of the scope – we recommend a manual EQ4 or better.  You will need 102/106mmmm rings, which we can provide (see our store).  We recommend you get a quality 2″ diagonal (any of the ones on our website are fine), and consider getting a Q-Turret with either the Baader Ortho Mix, or a set of Fujiyama’s (Get a 25mm, 12.5mm, 9mm and a 5mm) or similiar.  Alternatively, the 18mm, 25mm and 32mm 2″ Kellners are ridiculously inexpensive and give superb views through this Telescope and let in an extraordinary amount of light.
