Die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto Montierung

von Jochen Fehmer


Mein neustes Testobjekt ist die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto Montierung. Nun ja, in der Astronomie- Szene ist sie nicht gerade als die Montierung schlechthin bekannt und die Meinungen gehen weit auseinander.

Also ab ins Lager und eine BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto auf die Sackkarre und ins Auto damit. Mir fiel auf, die Dimensionen des Kartons sind echt übersichtlich, kein langer schwerer wie ich es von anderen Montierungen gewohnt bin. Es sei gesagt, es war keine überprüfte oder eine ausgesuchte, es war eine von der Stange oder besser gesagt vom Regal.

Zuhause angekommen und gestärkt von einem Abendessen machte ich mich ans Werk.

BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO mit EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC AR102
BRESSER Montierung EXOS 2 GOTO

Ich packte die Montierung im warmen Wintergarten aus, denn draußen war es schon sehr kalt, minus 4 Grad. Als erstes das Stativ. Es ist aus Stahlrohr, leicht und mit zwei Feststellschrauben pro Fuß…das finde ich schon einmal gut. Trotz des leichten Gewichts scheint es sehr stabil zu sein. Dann kam der Montierungskopf; die Motorenabdeckungen sind aus Kunststoff. Egal, wenigstens sind die Zahnräder und die Kugellager einigermaßen vor Staub und Feuchtigkeit geschützt. Auch da fiel mir auf, dass die Montierung sehr leicht ist. Die Montierung auf das Stativ zu schrauben ist sehr einfach, eine große Drehstange erleichtert das ungemein. Gute Idee,wenn es draußen nicht gerade warm ist. Dann die Gewindestange an die Montierung geschraubt. Ein Gewicht ist im Lieferumfang enthalten, dass auf die Stange geschoben und fest gezogen. Handbox angeschlossen und das DEC. Kabel installiert. Fertig. Die BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO Montierung macht so einen guten Eindruck, alle Schrauben sind groß genug um auch mit Handschuhen bei niedrigen Temperaturen arbeiten zu können. Allein vom Aussehen gefällt sie mir sehr gut.

Aber, gut aussehen reicht nicht. Leider suchte ich vergeblich nach einer Polsucherbeleuchtung. Diese muss als Zubehör gekauft werden. Dafür bekommt sie keinen Applaus. Es geht zwar auch ohne, aber mit der genauen Einordnung fällt und steht die Beobachtungsnacht. Schade.

Ich habe das mitgelieferte Batteriefach mit Batterien gefüllt. Ich wollte so damit arbeiten wie sie ausgeliefert wird. Ein Netzteil kann man als Zubehör erwerben.

Auf geht’s, Montierung angestellt. Als erstes fiel mir das sehr große Display der Handbox auf. Sehr angenehm die Infos zu lesen. Keine Laufschrift sondern stehende Buchstaben. Die Umstellung auf unsere deutsche Sprache ist kein Problem. Nur dass die Schrift auf einmal viel größer wurde….warum dieses? Keine Ahnung, eventuell sind viele Deutsche kurzsichtig. Die Zeit und das Datum musste ich nicht mehr eingeben, bei Bresser werden die Montierungen mit dem Goto versehen, so dass alles schon eingegeben wurde. Auch hier ist zu beachten wenn es eingegeben werden muss, erst das Jahr, Monat und dann den Tag. Nun zum Standort: Vorgegeben sind etliche Länder und Städte. Da es aber keine Updates mehr gibt kann man eigentlich sofort damit beginnen seinen eigenen Wohnort einzugeben. Dafür einmal nach unten mit den Pfeiltasten.

Die Zahnräder hinter der Abdeckung

Längen,- und Breitengrad eingeben. ( Wenn man den nicht weiß einfach im Internet oder Handy gucken ), Zeitzone hier in Deutschland ist 01. Wenn alles eingegeben ist bestätigen und das ist erledigt. Jedes Mal wenn man nun die Montierung ein schaltet nur noch auf Benutzerstandort gehen und fertig. (interne Batterie). Ich hatte für die erste gemeinsame Nacht mir folgendes vorgenommen.

Doppelschiene und 200 mm Canon Objektiv mit einer Canon EOS 6 D und 8x50 Sucher mit einer ASI ZWO 120 Guiding mit PHD2. Normalerweise sollte man die Montierung in DEC. und RA. auf vorgegebenen Pfeile stellen, dieses wollte ich aber nicht. Ging ja auch nicht, da ich mit einer Doppelschiene arbeiten wollte. Also ausgerichtet und angeschaltet. Ich wollte eine 3 Sterne Ausrichtung machen. Machte ich dann auch, einfach der Sternvorschläge ohne Widerworte folgen. (Wie in einer guten Ehe, keine Widerworte) Drei Sterne durch und fertig. Ich habe keine Ahnung ob das richtig war, schließlich war ich noch im warmen Wintergarten.

Zum Schluss sollte sie auf Home Position fahren, das tat sie auch mit der Querstellung meiner Ausrüstung. Natürlich habe ich vorher das Gewicht der Kamera, Objektiv etc. genau ausgependelt. Das ist sehr wichtig, die Gewichtsverteilung sollte schon passen. Dann ging es raus in die Dunkelheit und in die Kälte.

Die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto Montierung grob nach Norden ausgerichtet. Nun die Montierung mittels Dosenlibelle auf dem Stativ in Waage gebracht. Dann den Deckel des Polsuchers abgezogen, den Schraubdeckel entfernt. Da keine Polsucherbeleuchtung dabei war habe ich eine Laptop Lampe genommen. Ist eine kleine LED Leuchte mit Klemme und flexiblen Arm…ist zwar kein Rotlicht, geht aber auch. Es geht auch mit der Hand box! In der Hand box vorne ist ein Rotlicht eingebaut mit verschiedenen Helligkeitsstufen. Ohne Probleme reicht die Länge des Kabels aus um in die Öffnung des Polsuchers zu leuchten. Hab ich ausprobiert, klappt. Bei der BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO ist in der Mitte ein Strich und dort ein Kreis. Da steht Polaris. Es gibt zahlreiche APPs für das Handy. Unter anderem auch die APP- Polarfinder. Diese benutze ich immer. Automatisch habe ich die Position von Polaris. Bitte positionieren Sie den Polarstern auf den Kreis, nicht in dem Kreis. Sie können sicher sein, es passt. Ohne viel Mühe ist das erledigt.

Dann habe ich die Kamera angeschlossen und den Laptop gestartet. Die Scharfstellung ist schon eine heikle Sache. Ich nehme immer den Polarstern. Bis jetzt hat es immer geklappt. Es wäre schade, wenn die ganzen Aufnahmen unscharf oder die Sterne Donuts gleichen, die Zeit sollte man sich nehmen. Zahlt sich später aus.

Foto von Jörg Ortmann aus Hamm-Pelkum , 5.12.2016 (M 45 mit der BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO, 24x300 Sek., ISO 400 , Canon EOS 1000 Da.)

Die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto Montierung sollte beim ersten einrichten nur zwei Sterne anfahren, erster Stern war fast in der Mitte des Kameradisplays. Okay, ich gebe zu es war ja das Canon 70-200 mm, F4 Objektiv. Da wäre es sehr traurig wenn ich den nicht gesehen hätte, oder? Beim zweiten Stern viel ich aus den Wolken, die Montierung schlug den Polarstern vor. Alles klar! Doch ich zentrierte unsern Nordstern und bestätigte die Auswahl der Montierung. Da war ich mal gespannt. Ich scrollte auf der Handbox auf den Menüpunkt Messier Objekte und tippte die Zahlen 4 und 5 ein. Die Plejaden sollten es werden, das erste Objekt welches jemals die Montierung angefahren hat…..ein Stück Geschichte. Auf ging’s, sehr langsam und ruhig fuhr die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto den Himmel ab. Das Motorengeräusch ist ruhig, es wird keinen Ärger mit Nachbarn geben. Und dann war meine Überraschung sehr groß, mittig strahlten die sieben Schwestern im Display der Canon 6D Kamera. Der Adler ist gelandet! Oha, das ist doch mal was, innerliche Freude machte sich breit. Doch wie wird es weitergehen? Also, M 31 die Andromeda Galaxie….ist ja nicht weit weg, 31 in dem Menüpunkt Messier Objekte eingetippt und bestätigt. Und siehe da, M 31 in der Mitte. Dann wurde ich übermütig, Deneb im Sternmenü eingegeben, Mittig. Vega eingegeben, wieder mittig. Warum fragte ich mich, denn innerlich hatte ich mich auf Frust eingestellt. Okay, sie wollte es wissen. Ab zu den Plejaden. Eine Minute Belichtung ohne Guiding. Ergebnis: Punktförmige Sterne. 120 Sekunden eingegeben und Belichtung gestartet.

Kurz in die Küche gegangen und einen Kaffee geholt. Da hatten die Sterne leichte Tropfen. Aber gut. Jetzt wollte ich mal loslegen mit der Fotografie. Ich benutzte ein 9x50 Sucher mit einer ZWO ASI 120. APT auf meinem Laptop unterstützt die Astrofotografie. Im Display von APT stellte ich M 45 nochmal richtig scharf, durch die Zoom Funktion eine tolle Sache.

Leider merkte ich die Himmelqualität lies langsam aber sicher nach. Feuchtigkeit machte sich breit und das Seeing wurde von spitze zu überhaupt nicht mehr spitze! Aber egal, es gab aber noch ein paar Einstellungen die ich machen sollte und zwar die Guiding Geschwindigkeit bei der BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto auf 0,500 ändern. Bei PHD habe ich die Kalibrierungsschritte auf 1000 reduziert. Das waren nur grobe Änderungen, ein Feintuning wird es erst bei den nächsten Tests geben. Nun habe ich die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto mit meinem Laptop verbunden. Ich habe mir einen passenden Stern ausgesucht und die beiden Sachen sich einrichten lassen. Fertig. Die Ausschläge der Korrektur hielten sich in Grenzen. Also gut, dachte ich und wechselte in mein Belichtungsprogram. Ich stellte ISO 400 ein, 180 Sekunden Belichtungszeit und insgesamt sollten 30 Aufnahmen gemacht werden, also 2 Stunden. Ich startete die Aufnahmen. Ich war gespannt, denn man kann live die Korrekturen des Guiders sehen. 0,30 -0,85, in dem Bereich lagen die Zahlen. Das ist jetzt echt völlig in Ordnung, obwohl ich von anderen Montierungen ganz andere Zahlen gewohnt war.

M31

M31, die Andromeda Galaxie. Aufgenommen mit einer Canon EOS 6 D und der BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO Montierung. ISO 400/30x120 Sek.

Dann war das erste Foto fertig. Ich vergrößerte es auf dem Laptop, und man staune, die Sterne waren Punkte. Dann wurde es Zeit sich ein wenig aufzuwärmen und ich ging ins Haus. (Rentner Astrofotografie, bin halt über 50!) Nach knapp 2 Stunden ging ich raus in die dunkle, kalte Nacht um die Aufnahmen etc. zu kontrollieren. Alles noch in Ordnung. Die Schuhsohlenwärmer aus dem Baumarkt hielten das Objektiv und den Sucher Tau,- und Eisfrei. Ich entschied mich nun mit dem Sigma 120-400 mm mit F5,6 auf die Andromeda Galaxie zu schwenken. Objektiv gewechselt und dann M 31 eingegeben. Unsere Nachbargalaxie war mittig im Display der Kamera.

Anschlussbox

Die Anschlussbox der BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO Montierung. Von links nach rechts: ST4 für Auto-Guider zum Nachführen von länger belichteten Aufnahmen, Strom, An,-Ausschalter, Hand box und Stecker für DEC.-Achse.

Das Guiding musste ich neu starten, es wollte mit der alten Einstellung nicht mehr. Das dauerte aber nicht lang und die Belichtungen konnten beginnen. Die Tests mit „richtigen“ Teleskopen werden in den nächsten Wochen folgen. Auch diese Belichtungsreihe klappte auf Anhieb. Um drei Uhr rum war es dann auch gut. Die Batterien waren noch nicht am Ende, ich aber. Alles aus stellen, wegstellen und müde ins Bett fallen.

FAZIT DES ERSTEN TESTS MIT DER BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO

Im Großen und Ganzen bin ich positiv überrascht. Sie hat Ihre erste Testnacht sehr gut überstanden. Sie hat das gemacht was sie sollte und wofür sie entwickelt, gebaut und verkauft wird. Alleine das Piepsen der Hand box nervt ein wenig. Kann man nicht abschalten, wenn es zu viel wird einfach Gewebeband draufkleben. Mit der Hand box muss ich mich noch ein wenig beschäftigen, wie eigentlich mit der ganzen Montierung. Als ein richtiger Test kann man es und sollte man es noch nicht sehen, 200 mm und 400 mm Objektive ist noch keine richtige Herausforderung. Aber, aufgrund ihres geringen Gewichts ist sie sehr mobil. Sollte sie wirklich das Zeug haben als Fotomontierung? Das werden wir in den nächsten Tests sehen. Alleine vom Preis her ist die BRESSER EXOS 2 Montierung schon einmal ein guter Kandidat. Sie liegt preislich zwischen Reisemontierung ( meistens ohne Goto-Funktion) und mittelschweren Montierungen, die für den mobilen Einsatz sehr schwer und unhandlich sind.

Testbericht zu BRESSER Full HD Deep-Sky Kamera & Guider 1.25

von Reinhard Pankrath: "Mond am Taghimmel für Astro - Fotografie geeignet?"

Gefreut hatte ich mich über längere Wolkenlücken und einen offensichtlich durchsichtigen, also klaren, Himmel. Wenn man am Tag den Mond so schön sehen kann, obwohl die Sonne noch scheint, kann der Himmel nicht trübe sein und ist folglich auch für die Verwendung eines Teleskopes gut!

Was mich dann doch geärgert hat, war die fürchterliche Luftbewegung des doch so erwünscht klaren Himmels! Aber jeder Test wird erst richtig gut und aussagekräftig, desto schwieriger er durchzuführen ist. So auch hier.

Meine Erwartung schien realistisch: Wenn der Himmel zwar klar ist, aber die Sonne noch scheint, habe ich weniger Kontrast. Und das brachte mich auf die Idee, eine bestimmte Zusammenstellung meiner Geräte zu testen. Um es vorweg zu sagen: Das Ergebnis hat meine Erwartungen weit übertroffen! Aber hier der Weg dorthin:

Equipment:

• Die Bresser Exos 2 Goto Montierung

• OMC 140 deluxe Teleskop (140 / 2000), ein Rumak

• Die HD – Kamera von Bresser mit dem der neuesten Entwicklung entsprechenden back illuminated Chip von Sony

Warum so?

Erstens: Die Exos 2 ist stabil und läuft gut, habe ich sowieso für meine Teleskope. Die Alternative wäre ein Fotostativ – also ist die Wahl klar :-)

Zweitens: Das OMC wurde von Harrie Rutten berechnet inklusive des überragenden Blendensystems, das für einen optimalen Kontrast sorgt. Das sollte bei Tageslicht doch besonders geeignet sein! Eine bessere Abstimmung kann ich bei anderen Teleskopen auch nicht erwarten.

Drittens: Die HD-Kamera von Bresser hat diesen modernen Chip. Rauscharm und besonders lichtempfindlich durch die derzeit modernste Technik. Kann man bei Sony nachlesen, warum diese Technik so ist. Sehr aufwändig und deshalb auch teurer als herkömmliche Cmos (außer bei Bresser, da hat mich der Preis gewundert, andere lassen es sich besser bezahlen). Aber eben effektiv. Und die Lichtempfindlichkeit der back illuminated Chips sorgt dafür, dass die Belichtungszeiten besonders kurz gehalten werden können. Gerade bei Luftunruhe wichtig, je kürzer belichtet, desto mehr „friert“ die Luftunruhe beim Einzelbild ein. Also siehe oben. Soll die Kamera mal zeigen, was sie kann.

Jetzt muss ich etwas gestehen: Beim ersten Probieren der Kamera habe ich mich über ein gegenüber anderen Programmen komplizierteres Einstellungsmenü geärgert. Da muss man tatsächlich die Bedienungsanleitung lesen! So was! - Nun, ich sage jetzt: Gut, dass es alle diese Parameter gibt. Ein bisschen lernen hat mir auch nicht geschadet und bei diesem Test hat es sich bewährt. Da kam das zugute, was man alles regeln kann.

Das Bild war trotz des Sonnenlichthimmels NICHT flau! Korrekturen am Histogramm – bitte feinfühlig, zuviel ruiniert das Bild dann doch – an der Zeit und Verstärkung, am Weißabgleich und so weiter... haben die Aufnahme des Videos mit 1000 Bildern verarbeitungswürdig gemacht. Gut, man muss vor der Aufnahme etwas Zeit investieren, um alles den Gegebenheiten anzupassen. Einer Automatik würde ich es aber sowieso nicht überlassen. Bei Aufnahmen möchte ich doch bitte noch selber eingreifen können, um das Optimum heraus zu holen. Bei dem erreichten Kontrast konnte ich dann auch die Schärfeleistung erkennen und entsprechend fokussieren. Und so entstanden dann die Videos, bis die Wolken wieder zu dicht wurden und ich abbauen musste.

Die Bearbeitung, stacken, nachbearbeiten mit verschiedenen Freewareprogrammen, in das Format des Ergebnisses für die Veröffentlichung umwandeln, erfolgte dann wie immer. Und hier das Ergebnis. Kann man erkennen, dass die Sonne geschienen hat, als die Aufnahme entstand?

Mein Fazit: Die Kamera ist sehr gut zu gebrauchen, auch wenn die Bedingungen schwierig sind, alle Achtung.

Ich freue mich, dass ich auch so den Mond fotografieren kann und nicht immer auf die Dunkelheit warten muss. Das erweitert das Zeitfenster für mein Hobby doch sehr. Und jetzt ärgere ich mich nie mehr über viele Parameter zur Einstellung der Aufnahme! :-)

Liebe Grüße und Clear Sky

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 82° Ar Eyepiece 4,7mm (1,25")
Explore Scientific 82° Series™ extreme wide field eyepieces are optimized to produce high contrast, high resolution, and superior flat field characteristics. The visual effect of these eyepieces with their long eye-relief and their 82° apparent field is truly a full-immersion experience. Your eye is relaxed, allowing you to easily use the "averted vision" technique to study faint details across a huge field-of-view. The 82° Series eyepieces come with a twist-up rubber eye-guard that raise to the desired height for the comfort of the observer, and as experienced astronomers know, eye comfort is critical when trying to observe at the visual limits of the telescope. To keep internal reflections to a minimum, all internal surfaces of the eyepiece barrel are flat black, as well as the edges of the lenses themselves to minimize the scattering of light within the lenses themselves. All 82° Series eyepieces are fully multi-coated and edge-blackened to produce maximum contrast.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 2" Variable Polarizing Filter
Universally usable variable polarizing filter with a  2" filter thread.This variable polarizing filter allows for a continuous adjustment of the image brightness. This is very helpful to level strong differences in contrast of different observation objects individually. Particularly for lunar and planetary observations but also for solar observations this filter prevents an outshining of details.Solar observations ONLY together with an adequate solar filter !!! Particularly when a Herschel wedge is used and with large objective lens apertures the use of the variable polarizing filter can reduce the brightness of the observation object to a confortable level. The large adjustment range of 40% to 1% light transmission and the neutral grey filter effect create a comfortable and unadulterated image.The handling is very simple.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 2" UHC Nebula Filter
One of the most important obstacles for the exploration of the night sky is the brightening of the night sky by artificial lights, such as streetlights. The night sky is not really dark in the vicinity of towns or cities, which reduces the visibility of objects beyond the solar system enormously. Depending on the type of the celestial object, it is possible to dramatically increase the contrast by blocking annoying artificial light. The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC UHC filter "zeros in" on the wavelengths of so-called emission nebulae. Those objects glow in special colours - their emission lines. Those emission lines are linked to chemical elements - in this case hydrogen at 486nm and 656nm, plus oxygen at 496nm and 501nm. The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC UHC nebula filter blocks all other colour wavelengths (and thereby nearly all of artificial light) and only the emission line of the hydrogen and oxygen can pass the filter. The result is astonishing: suddenly nebulae are visible at locations that were completely invisible from, without filters. In suburban skies, for example the Owl-nebula M97, the Veil-nebula NGC 6992 or even the bright Dumbell-nebula M27 are not clearly visible. Using this filter allows you to see nebulae and their structures in much finer detail. A must for every visual observer. The Explore Scientific nebula filters come with a individual test certificate - your guarantee to receive a premium filter.

Whether you want to observe a fascinating gas planet or a bright deep-sky object, the telescope will automatically move to your desired target. Thanks to the built-in motors in both axes of the azimuthal mount, the target object is automatically tracked so that you can sit back and enjoy the night sky. Explore the night sky with the Maksutov telescope Featuring a long focal length of 1250 mm, this telescope is ideal for making exciting discoveries in the solar system and beyond. Take a close look at the gas clouds on Jupiter, or watch the rings of Saturn through the telescope for the first time with your own eyes. Thanks to the 90 mm aperture, the telescope collects about 165 times more light than the human eye. However, it's not just the planets that look stunning through the high-quality optics. It's also worth venturing further afield into space: marvel at the sight of the Orion Nebula, 1,344 light years from Earth, or the famous Ring Nebula M57 in the constellation Lyra. The two included eyepieces with 25 mm and 12.5 mm focal lengths will show you these objects and many others at 50 or 100 times magnification. And because the best observation spots are usually not found in your immediate vicinity, the telescope features a compact Cassegrain design for easy transport.

Vixen SXP2-VC200L-S-PFL Telescope Complete Set
SXP2 mount with VC200L telescope This telescope set has everything you need to observe the night sky. It includes a telescope, a mount with automatic tracking, a tripod and two eyepieces. The SXP2 mount comes with the new STARBOOK TEN controller and the PFL-II polar viewfinder, which allows you to configure the mount quickly and easily via reference stars. The VC200L was designed for photography and renders a sharp and high-contrast image to the edges of the camera chip. It produces stunningly sharp images of the galaxies and nebula. The telescope set also offers outstanding visual performance and produces sharp images without chromatic aberration. It also produces impressive images of the moon's craters and Saturn's ring system. The mount can be operated fully automatically and finds celestial objects automatically.The SXP 2 mount in detailStrong mount housingCompared with previous models, the new SXP2 mount features larger bearings in order to increase the accuracy and load capacity.The mounting housing is made from a stronger material than the previous SX mounts.The equatorial head is clamped into a fork in order to increase the stability of the polar alignment wedge.Precise tracking with P-PEC functionThe SXP2 mount comes with the modern STARBOOK TEN control system. This includes a P-PEC function for precise tracking. PEC stands for ''Periodic Error Corrections'' and corrects errors in the mechanics which lead to periodic errors in the gear systems. The P-PEC function, which is based on the PEC function, is designed for the SXP2 equatorial mount. The P-PEC function saves the records of corrections, even after the power supply to the mount has been switched off. It is not necessary to re-enter the data each time, which enables a quicker setup and more precise tracking.The belt drive system minimizes backlash and noiseConventional motor-driven systems on equatorial mounts use gear wheels, which are driven by the motor. However, this design generates backlash under the gear wheels, which can lead to inaccuracies.To avoid these errors, the drive was converted to a belt drive system. This drastically reduces the backlash of the gear unit, as well as the noise generated by the drive system. It also ensures a quicker reaction when corrections are required.16 bearingsThe mechanical parts contain a total of 16 bearings.The SXP2 mount uses a set of tapered roller bearings for the RA axis in order to provide additional stability for more precise tracking.Stable polar alignment wedgeThe SXP2 mount uses the same fork as the heavy AXJ mount. This new construction enables a quick and stable configuration of the latitude setting.Simple and precise polar alignment via reference starThe 6x20 polar finder scope is pre-installed. This allows the user to configure the polar alignment (for both the northern and southern hemispheres). The polar finder scope has a variable illuminated reticle with an automatic power-off function. The brightness can be adjusted in 8 levels so that the user can configure the desired brightness.The polar finder scope can be configured directly via three reference stars and can reach an accuracy of up to 3 arc minutes.Variable mount headThe mount head has a diameter of 35 mm and features 8 threaded holes for M8 screws spaced at 45 degrees. An optional accessory tray can be attached to the mount head directly or in combination with an optional mounting wedge for dovetail plates. The threaded holes on the mounting head can also be used to mount rails from other manufacturers. Modern STAR BOOK TEN controller with high-resolution colour display and built-in star chartThe STAR BOOK TEN controller is a modern control system with a high-resolution colour monitor.The STAR BOOK TEN system contains more than 272,000 celestial objects, including 260,000 stars from the SAO catalogue, 109 Messier objects, 7840 NGC objects and 5380 IC objects, as well the soon, moon and planets. Objects can be accessed by name, and information such as images and data can be defined separately.A combination of innovative, elegant design and user-friendly featuresThe improved design of the stable and rigid mount body, which features precise tracking with a P-PEC function and STAR BOOK TEN control system, offers a highly precise, easy to use mount that is guaranteed to please astrophotographers and observers.Special motor mount for lighter counterweightThe heavy RA and DEC motor units are built into the bottom of the declination axis to ensure that the centre of gravity of the equatorial head is below the RA and DEC axis. This enables the declination body to function as a counterweight. Thanks to the flat mounting head, the mount can be balanced with a significantly lighter counterweight.Retractable counterweight barThe counterweight bar is made from solid stainless steel with a thickness of 20 mm, and enables the use of all counterweights from the SX and GP mount series. The counterweight bar is housed in the declination body.The VC200L in detailAstrophotographers generally use two different focal lengths: Short focal lengths for overview photos and extensive deep-sky objects, and long focal lengths for objects which are further away. Our aspherical mirror optics offer the perfect solution for these scenarios. The VISAC primary mirror (Vixen Sixth-Order Aspheric Cassegrain) is specially designed for astrophotography and provides a fully flat and true-colour image over the entire image frame. Thanks to the three-element field corrector in front of the convex secondary mirror, there is no spherical aberration, coma or field curvature. Although the device is designed for astrophotography, it is also suitable for visual observations.FEATURES Mirror: 200 mm (8 inches) Photographically optimised system with flattenerFocal length: 1800 mmResolution and limiting magnitude: 0.58 arc seconds; 13.3 magLight-gathering power: 816 xDimensions and weight: 232 x 600 mm, 6.9 kgAdapter and connections: 31.7 mm sleeve, 60 mm thread109 Messier objects, 7840 NGC objects and 5380 IC objectsModern controller with high-resolution monitorIntegrated star chart and moon programBuilt-in autoguider input (ST4 port)DELIVERY CONTENTVC 200 telescopeSXP2 mountSTARBOOK TEN controllerMounting toolSXG-HAL130 tripod2 counterweights (1.9 kg and 3.7 kg) 7x50 finder scope Folding mirror Carry handle Dovetail barDovetail adapterV 20 mm and SLV 9 mm eyepiece
