Testbericht zu BRESSER Messier MC-127/1900

von Michael M.

Den Bresser Messier Maksutov-Cassegrain mit 127 mm Öffnung wollte ich als Mondbeobachter schon lange einmal kennenlernen. Durch eine Korrespondenz in anderer Sache mit Wolfgang Quere ergab sich das Angebot von Bresser, das Gerät einmal leihweise für einen Test-Bericht zu bekommen. Dieses Angebot nahm ich gerne an und möchte im nachfolgenden meine Eindrücke beschreiben.



Das Gerät kam sehr gut verpackt und wohlbehalten bei mir an. Das obige Bild zeigt das Gerät im fertig montierten Zustand mit dem beiliegenden Lieferumfang.

Zum Gerät selber kann ich sagen, dass es sauber verarbeitet ist und sowohl mechanisch wie auch vom Finish einen guten Eindruck macht. Am Gerät ist eine typische GP-Level Prismenschiene verbaut, die auf der Klemmseite mit einer Edelstahlschiene vor Klemmspuren geschützt wird. Ferner hat der MC vorn eine schöne Kunststoffabdeckung um die Meniskuslinse zu schützen. Diese hat, so wie man es auch von Foto-Objektivdeckeln kennt 2 Rastnasen – recht praktisch.

Der Tubus ist ein solider Alu-Tubus und macht einen stabilen Eindruck. Die Lackierung an meinem Gerät ist sehr sauber und gut ausgeführt. Den rückwärtigen Abschluss des Gerätes bildet eine Fassung aus stabilem Kunststoff. Dies mag vielleicht zunächst etwas ernüchternd wirken, dennoch muss ich sagen, dass während des Gebrauchs keine Einschränkungen zu bemerken waren. Diese Abdeckung ist sehr stabil ausgeführt.

Der Fokussiermechanismus erinnert sehr stark an das altehrwürdige Meade ETX 125. So wie auch die technischen Daten dieses Maksutov Cassegrain fast wie eine Re-Inkarnation des ETX 125 anmuten.

Der Fokussierknopf wirkt bei erster Betrachtung etwas zierlich, hat sich aber im Beobachtungsbetrieb bewährt. Die Fokuslage lässt sich sehr feinfühlig und butterweich verstellen. Erfreulich bei diesem Exemplar auch : das sogenannte Shifting fällt sehr gering aus ! Da habe ich schon ganz andere Erfahrungen machen müssen !

Wenn es etwas zu kritisieren gibt, dann sind es für mich die schwer zugänglichen Justierschrauben zur Kollimation des Hauptspiegels. Sie sind sind auf der hinteren Gehäuseabdeckung hinter drei Gummiabdeckungen versteckt. Leider ist die Öffnung dahinter recht schmal und klein, zudem liegen die Justierschrauben relativ tief und haben auch noch 2 unterschiedliche Inbusgrößen. So wird die Justierarbeit schnell zur mühseligen Fummelei. Vielleicht könnte man bei einer nächsten Gerätegeneration die Zugänglichkeit hier etwas verbessern



Ansonsten gibt es bezüglich der mechanischen Ausführung des Gerätes eigentlich nichts zu mäkeln.Die Optik kam absolut sauber und fusselfrei an; die Tubus-Innenschwärzung könnte evtl. noch etwas besser sein, erfüllt aber auch so ihren Zweck, wie sich bei den Beobachtungen zeigte. Ach ja : was das Zubehör angeht – den mitgelieferten Leuchtpunktsucher sollte man am besten gleich durch einen vernünftigen Sucher ersetzen. Aus meiner Sicht ist das Ding nahezu nutzlos.

Einen Punkt wollte ich noch überprüfen : im Internet gab es zuweilen Gerüchte, das die bekannten 5“ Maks eines Mitbewerbers in Wirklichkeit nur mit c. 119-120 mm Öffnung arbeiten. So überprüfte ich den MC-127 auf seine „wahre“ Öffnung. Auch hier gibt es bei Bresser keine Mogelpackung – das Gerät arbeitet mit den vollen angegebenen 127 mm Öffnung.

Leider ergaben sich im Leihzeitraum für mich nicht sehr viele Beobachtungsmöglichkeiten, dennoch konnte ich mir einen recht guten Eindruck hauptsächlich bei der Mondbeobachtung, an Doppelsternen und zum Schluss auch noch kurz an Mars machen.



Aufgebaut ist das Gerät hier auf meiner Terrasse, auf einer relativ hohen Säule, die ich eigentlich für meine Refraktoren nutze. Als Montierung dient meine altehrwürdige Meade LXD 650. Das ist natürlich schon over-kill für den kleinen Mak. Eine einfache EQ-3 oder auch ältere Vixen New Polaris Montierung würden für den Bresser MC 127 vollkommen ausreichen.

Mond:

An mehreren Abenden bzw. ganz frühen Morgenstunden ergaben sich Möglichkeiten zur Mondbeobachtung. Da ich sonst vorwiegend mit achromatischen Refraktoren beobachte, war zunächst einmal die völlige Farbreinheit des Maksutov für mich ein schöner Effekt. Genutzt habe ich vorwiegend meine Baader Classic Orthos, sowie ein Baader 32 mm Super Plössl. Am Mond waren Vergrößerungen bis ca. 240x mit einem 7mm SPL ohne Schwierigkeiten machbar, ohne dass das Bild „matschig“ wurde - ein sehr schönes Ergebnis ! An eine Grenze stieß ich dann erst mit dem 6 mm Classic Ortho. Bei dann immerhin schon 316x wurde es sehr schwer bis zeitweise unmöglich einen eindeutigen Fokuspunkt zu finden. Das mag z.T. Am vorherrschenden Seeing gelegen haben, zeigt aber vielleicht auch die Grenzen dieser Optik auf.

Der Fairnes halber muss ich aber auch sagen, dass ich bei 4“ und 5“ Geräten mit 200facher Vergrößerung am Mond eigentlich alles sehe, was diese Öffnungsklasse hergibt. So gesehen ist 316x schon eindeutig im Bereich der Übervergrößerung anzusiedeln.

Nachstehend ein paar Aufnahmen, welche mit recht einfachem Equipment gewonnen wurden : eine einfache Kompaktdigitalkamera wurde per Digi-Halterung hinter das Okular gebracht und über die Videofunktion AVI Videos gefilmt, die dann mit Autostakkert 2.0 verarbeitet wurden.

Zunächst aber eine Fokalaufnahme mit einer Samsung NX20 DSLM...


Weitere Aufnahmen in Okularprojektion :


 

Mars :

Fast am Ende der Leihzeit ergab sich die Möglichkeit zumindest noch einen kurzen Blick auf Mars zu erhaschen. Leider stand der rote Planet die meiste Zeit einfach zu tief und wurde an meinem Beobachtungsstandort z.T. auch durch Bäume und Häuser verdeckt. Auch blieb mir jeweils nur ein kurzes Zeitfenster, bevor der Planet wieder hinter Bäumen oder Häusern verschwand.Dennoch konnten die Polkappe, einige Strukturen ( Syrte ? ) und blickweise sogar Olympus Mons noch beobachtet werden. Alles in allem ein schöner Anblick trotz des tiefen Planetenstandes und der widrigen Bedingungen.

Doppelsterne:

Pi Aql : konnte mit 1“4 Abstand im 18er Classic Ortho bei 105x schön getrennt werden.

e Lyrae: locker getrennt schon im 32er Super Plössl

sowie weitere Doppelsterne im Orion, der ja reich an Doppelsternen ist. So konnte ich in den frühen Morgenstunden des 30.09. trotz Mondhelligkeit einige Kandidaten im Orion gut beobachten.

eta Ori : im 18er leicht getrennt, wobei auch die nahezu gleiche Helligkeit hilft

zeta Ori : trotz 2“4 Abstand gar nicht mal soo einfach, da doch ein ziemlicher Helligkeitsunterschied

32 Ori : mit 1,2“ schon etwas schwieriger, zumal bei seeing 6/10, aber bei 190x gut aufgelöst

Was insgesamt beim Bresser Maksutov-Cassegrain positiv auffällt, ist die offenbar gute Optik des Gerätes. Zwar steht mir nun keine optische Bank zur Verfügung, aber es ist schon immer ein gutes Zeichen, wenn sich beim Fokussieren eine eindeutige Fokus-Lage einstellt. Ich habe im Laufe der letzten 20 Jahre schon durch viele Optiken gucken dürfen – sei es nun Refraktoren, SC's, Maks oder Newtons. Auch einige, weniger gute Geräte waren dabei. Bei solchen, minderwertigen Optiken „eiert“ man geradezu immer eine Weile um den richtigen Fokuspunkt herum. Man dreht am Fokussierer hin und her und findet doch nie den Punkt, an dem man meint, die richtige Schärfe gefunden zu haben.

Nicht so bei diesem Bresser MC 127 – beim Fokussieren stellte sich stets schnapp-artig ein klar definierter Schärfepunkt ein. Man weiß genau: hier ist es scharf, schärfer geht’s nicht.

Als Fazit kann ich für mich festhalten : der Bresser MC 127 ist ein sich stimmiges Gerät. Er hat eine sehr gute, scharfe Optik und ist mit seiner Brennweite und Öffnung ein ideales kleines Gerät für Mond- und Planetenbeobachter. Aber auch Doppelsterne machen Spaß. Zudem ist der MC-127 ein sehr kompaktes und leichtes Gerät. Er lässt sich kostengünstig montieren und Dank seiner Größe und seines Gewichts auch gut auf Reisen mitnehmen.

Bedenkt man den Preis von rund 350€ kann man hier sogar von einem echten Preis-Leistungs-Wunder sprechen ! Man kann leicht das mehrfache an Kosten ausgeben, ohne wirklich mehr zu sehen.

Ein absolut empfehlenswerter Maksutov-Cassegrain !

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 1.25" O-III 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 systems enourmously. Depending on the type of the celestial object it is possible to increase the contrast dramatically by blocking the annoying artifical light. The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC O-III filter uses a characteristic property of the so called emmission nebulae. Those objekcts glow in special colors, the so called emmission lines. Those emmission lines are linked to chemical elements - in this case oxygen. The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC O-III nebula filter blocks all other colors (and thereby nearly all of the artificial light) and only the two emmission lines of the oxygen can pass the filter. The result is astonoishing: suddenly nebulae are visible at locations that were completely empty without filters. In suburbian skies for example the veil nebula NGC 6992 is almost not visible with a 200mm telescope. By using this filter you can see the nebula and its structures without problems. A must for every visual observer. The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC nebula filters come with a individual test certificate - your guarantee to receive a premium filter.FEATURESenables the observation of so called emmission nebulaeblocks almost the entire artificial lightonly the two emmission lines of the oxygen passes the filterSCOPE OF DELIVERY1x 1,25" O-III nebula filter

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 1.25" 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 systems enormously. Depending on the type of the celestial object it is possible to increase the contrast dramatically by blocking the annoying artificial light. The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC UHC filter uses a characteristic property of the 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 colours (and thereby nearly all of the 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 empty without filters. In suburban skies for example the Owl-nebula M97, the Veil-nebula NGC6992 or even the bright Dumbell-nebula M27 are not clearly visible.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 1.25" CLS Nebula Filter
Besides air turbulence, the brightening of the night sky is the biggest obstacle to observing faint objects beyond the solar system. Street lamps and other artificial lighting mean that the sky in human settlements is no longer really black. This affects the contrast and thus the perception of deep-sky objects. Depending on the type of celestial object, however, part of disturbing artificial light can be filtered out, making it easier to observe fainter targets.The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC CITY LIGHT SUPRESSION - or CLS - filter uses the fact that the artificial lighting is not evenly distributed over the entire spectrum. These colours - in the case of the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC CLS nebula filter, above all the typical colours of mercury and high-pressure lamps, used in street lighting - are suppressed, but the emissions of deep-sky objects are allowed through. With a slightly brightened sky, some relatively bright deep-sky objects are practically invisible with a telescope, for example the large galaxy M101. Using this filter makes observation much easier. A must have for any visual amateur astronomer.  The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC CLS can also be used as a useful photographic filter - helping to improve the quality of your telescopic deep sky photos.The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC nebula filters are delivered with an individual test report - so you can be sure of receiving high-quality filters.SPECIFICATIONS:eliminates disturbing light - e.g. from street lightingenables observation of faint deep sky objectsWHAT'S INCLUDED:1x CLS filter

BRESSER Camera-Adapter M35/T2 for MC/MCX100/127
Camera-Adapter M35/T2 for Bresser MC/MCX-100 and MC/MCX-127 Maksutov telescopes The BRESSER Camera-Adapter M35/T2 for MC/MCX100/127 is principally designed to connect a DSLR camera (with appropriate manufacturer-specific T2 T-ring, available separately) to the Bresser MC-100 and MC-127 Maksutov telescopes which have a built-in M35 connecting thread. You can also use wider-bodied astronomical cameras (non-c-mount), which have T2 threads built into their bodies, as standard with this camera adapter. This adapter can be separated into two different lengths of 30mm and 80mm (which both truncate in a T2/M42 thread). The use of these different lengths of extension tube allows the user to vary the projection of image on to a camera chip and get the best framing for the size of object being imaged. Please note: an extra camera specific T2-adapter ring (Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc.) is necessary to connect a DSLR.  Many of these are available from us and you are welcome to contact us for advice if unsure which of these to pick.WHAT'S INCLUDED Camera-Adapter with M35x1,0mm to M42x0.75mm (T2) thread

Astronomy from the Comfort of Your Couch Simply choose your desired object from the countless galaxies and nebulae available in the star catalog of the intuitive app. The ZWO Seestar S50 Smart Telescope will automatically move to the selected object. The all-rounder automatically focuses on the celestial object before beginning the capture and sends real-time images to your smartphone or tablet. The smart telescope independently sets the optimal camera settings such as exposure time, ISO value, or aperture. High-Quality Optics Meets Smart Technology The high-quality apochromat refractor optics of the Seestar S50 ensure exceptionally clear and color-accurate images. The combination of top-notch optics, advanced automatic star recognition, and effective GoTo functionality makes this smart telescope a powerful instrument for night observation and astrophotography – accessible to everyone! The integrated camera supports high resolutions that capture even the finest details in distant galaxies and nebulae. Focus on the Essentials The Seestar S50 features an integrated filter change mechanism that can be controlled via the app. By default, the UV/IR-CUT filter is used, eliminating unwanted infrared and ultraviolet light while allowing the crucial H-alpha emission nebula band for astronomical photography to pass through. This results in more contrast-rich images of many deep-sky objects. Automatic Image Stacking for Razor-Sharp Shots The Seestar S50 uses the stacking method for creating astrophotos. Multiple individual images are combined or "stacked" in real-time to form a new image. The final image becomes sharper and more detailed as more individual images are combined. Experience how a galaxy millions of light-years away takes shape before your eyes, revealing more details with each passing minute. The result is exceptionally clear images that reveal the depths of space with impressive detail. For Stacking Pros Too Already familiar with stacking and prefer to do the image processing yourself?

BRESSER JUNIOR Refractor Telescope 70/900 EL
Observing the stars like a professional - very easy with the BRESSER JUNIOR refractor telescope 70/700 EL. It is a complete system for the exploration of the wonders of the universe, consisting of telescope, mount, tripod and all accessories needed. With an aperture of 70 mm it reveils already many details of celestial objects. The mount can not only swing the telescope left / right and up / down, it can also be used in a so-called equatorial mode, as scientists do in their observatories (see further under Special features). An additional finder scope mounted on the telescope is useful for locating celestial objects. With the erecting lens many exciting things in the environment can also be seen during daytime. With the height-adjustable tripod, the telescope can each be brought to an optimal height for large or small observers. The supplied diagonal mirror ensures a comfortable viewing. At night the moon and planets may like Saturn and Jupiter can be explored. But thanks to the 70 mm wide aperture of the telescope also many celestial objects outside our solar system are within the reach of this telescope. Star clusters many light years away and nebula impress young and old stargazers. SPECIAL FEATURESMounting with wedge: At first glance, the NG mount of the refractor telescope 90/700 NG is a very ordinary azimuth mount: an axis for left / right and one for up / down, as we know it from normal camera tripods. This mode makes sense especially with observations during the day. With the built-in wedge it can be tilted, so the whole mount can be converted to an equatorial mount for astronomy with a single operation. For use of the equatorial mount an axis is aligned with the North Star. When tracking a celestial object only a single axis needs to be moved, which clearly is a relief compared to tracking an object on the night sky with mounts that only have left / right and up / down axis.

BRESSER Sirius 70/900 AZ Refractor Telescope with Smartphone Camera Adapter
Set off on your personal journey to the stars with the BRESSER Sirius 70/900 AZ lens telescope. The complete astronomy set already includes everything you need to start observing the sky: the astronomical lens telescope with 70 mm aperture and 900 mm focal length, the azimuthal mount, the tripod and a wide range of accessories for fascinating discoveries. At the same time, it is very easy to operate - ideal to amaze even children with a view of the night sky. Simply a stargazing classic - the telescope With this lens telescope - a so-called Fraunhofer achromatic refractor - even total astro-beginners and children can easily explore the secrets of our night sky. Because this classic design impresses with its special user-friendliness and easy handling. To ensure that you enjoy good imaging properties when looking at the Moon, Sun, planets and star clusters, the entry-level telescope has been equipped with modern, precisely coated optics. The 70 mm aperture collects a total of 100 times more light than the human eye. And it is also convincing compared to a comparable 60 mm telescope: the light gathering capacity is 36 % higher and the resolving power is also better. Thus, with the 70 mm lens telescope, significantly more details are visible at the same magnification, e.g. on Saturn's rings or the two main cloud bands of Jupiter. But how big do the celestial objects appear then? The resolution of the 70 mm lens lets you enjoy really sharp images at magnifications up to about 140x. For comparison: with a 60 mm aperture, this is only possible up to 120x. Technically, of course, the starter telescope can do even more - theoretically up to 675x with the included accessories. However, with increasing magnification, the image can slowly become more and more blurred. And how big you can really see the planets, star clusters and co. depends not only on the telescope. Another important factor: the air turbulence in the atmosphere (seeing conditions). A sharp image with good contrast - this is what the starter telescope achieves with its large focal ratio of about 1 to 12.9 (F/12.9), which is calculated from the ratio of the 70 mm aperture to the 900 mm focal length. And you will see: Due to the long focal length, especially the Sun, Moon, planets, open star clusters and globular clusters become absolute eye-catchers. Solid base for your stargazing hours - mount and tripod Found the ideal location for your nocturnal explorations? Then attach the telescope tube to the height-adjustable aluminium tripod with azimuthal mount. And this azimuthal mount is particularly compelling due to one quality: operation is really child's play. Simply swing the telescope by hand to the left or right, up or down, as with a common photo tripod. This way you can quickly move your gaze from one celestial highlight to the next. And where are the accessories? Simply place them on the storage plate between the tripod legs. This way, eyepieces, solar filter and co. stay always within reach. All the trimmings - the accessories The beginner’s telescope comes with everything you need for a quick start in stargazing. When searching for celestial bodies worth seeing, take your first look through the included LED viewfinder. Because the direction finder helps you to align the telescope precisely and find astronomical objects. It works like this: The LED finder is mounted in parallel on the telescope tube. It projects a red dot onto a small ground-glass screen that appears to float in front of the sky when you look through it. And that is exactly where the aperture of your telescope points. This way, you can always keep an overview of the night sky - before focusing your attention on the details through the magnification of the telescope. And you decide how high this magnification is by choosing the eyepiece. You will be amazed: the two eyepieces included in the set (4 mm, 20 mm) allow you to admire completely different images of the same object. If you one day want a change of perspective, you can expand your astronomy set with a large selection of eyepieces. For this purpose, the socket diameter is 1.25 inches (31.7 mm), which corresponds to an international, manufacturer-independent standard. You like what you see, but would love more detail? Then simply insert the 3x Barlow lens between the telescope and the eyepiece. And you have tripled the magnification of the eyepiece! Observation comfort and a pleasant view - this is what the 90-degree star diagonal mirror is made for. Even if your starter telescope is pointed vertically into the sky, you don't need to lie down underneath it to see anything. Instead, simply look in comfortably from the side and enjoy the view. But it's not only at night that we should look skywards. For only during the day you can see a very special star: our Sun. So put the solar filter in front of the lens and safely look at sunspots and granulation on the Sun. CAUTION: Never point the telescope at the Sun without the solar filter! Would you like to share your discoveries with friends and family? Then take your first steps in astrophotography right away - and those are done in no time with the smartphone camera adapter for your beginner's telescope.

The BRESSER Spica Plus also comes with high-performance mechanics, including a premium equatorial mount that allows you to set up the telescope in no time. A focuser is attached to the side of the tube, as is standard on a Newtonian reflector telescope. It comes with two eyepieces for observing at different magnifications. Explore the planets of our solar system and discover new worlds. And if you’d like to capture your observations to share with others, you can take photos through the telescope using the supplied smartphone camera adapter.
