Modifizierter Okularauszug mit DSLR

Pluto

Pluto/s auf T

Das Bresser Pluto/s habe ich vor gut zwei Jahren gekauft, um meinen Kindern Sonne, Mond und Sterne zu zeigen. Ich hatte mich zwar ganz allgemein schon etwas für Astronomie und Raumfahrt interessiert, aber von Teleskopen hatte ich keine Ahnung. Das Bresser Pluto/s als Newtonteleskop habe ich ausgewählt, da „Spiegelteleskop“ sich für mich nach Hubble und damit „wissenschaftlich“ anhörte. Außerdem machte es für den Preis einen stabilen Eindruck und hatte, meiner Meinung nach, eine Ausstattung, mit der man gleich loslegen konnte.

Dinge wie Krater auf dem Mond, Jupitermonde, Venusphasen oder die Saturnringe vor den eigenen Augen zu haben, ist auch für Kinder ein anderes Erlebnis, als sie nur am Bildschirm oder in einer Zeitschrift zu sehen. Und das macht das mitgelieferte Zubehör, wie z.B. mehrere Okulare, schon möglich. Auch die Andromedagalaxie, die visuell oft kaum oder nur verwaschen sichtbar ist, sieht man durch die gute Lichtstärke (f/4,4) des Pluto/s schon als deutlichen Nebel.

Der größte Nachteil bei der Himmelsbeobachtung war - nein nichts am Pluto - sondern das Wetter. Leider hält sich unser mitteleuropäisches Wetter nicht immer an Wochenenden, Ferien oder die spontane Idee von Kindern mal eben im Teleskop den Orionnebel anzuschauen. Daher kam bei mir bald die Idee auf, das was man durch’s Teleskop sehen kann, aufzunehmen, damit man es später wieder anschauen und zeigen kann (z.B. am nächsten Morgen, weil die Kinder ins Bett müßen). Das wäre ja dann auch irgendwie „selbst gemacht“.

Deshalb kaufte ich mir vor ca. einem Jahr zusätzlich eine sogenannte Mond- und Planetenkamera. Über die 1,25“-Steckhülse war die Anpassung an den Okularauszug und die Fokussierung kein Problem. Der Okularauszug hat sogar genügend Backfokus um mit einer Reduzierlinse die Brennweite auf das 0,63-fache zu reduzieren. Dies, hatte ich gelernt, ist hilfreich, um z.B. den Vollmond oder die Sonne ganz auf den kleinen Chip einer Planetenkamera zu bekommen.

Erste Versuche waren, nun ja, ernüchternd. Trotz bester Versuche zu fokussieren, waren meine Aufnahmen flau und verwaschen. Ein Newtonspiegelteleskop soll man, so hatte ich gelesen, von Zeit zu Zeit rejustieren, besonders wenn man etwas rauer damit umgeht und es oft bewegt. Das Pluto ist über Justierschrauben an Haupt- und Fangspiegel voll justierbar, was nicht bei allen Spiegelteleskopen in der gleichen Preisklasse der Fall ist. Mit einem kleinen Justierlaser, den ich mir kaufte und etwas Anleitung aus dem Internet hatte ich das dann auch gut hinbekommen. Die nächste Aufnahmen waren besser und ich hatte jetzt Blut für die Astrofotografie geleckt.

Hier hat es sich als Vorteil erwiesen, daß das Pluto mit parallaktischer Montierung ausgeliefert wird . Die EQ-Sky-Montierung, die mit dem Pluto angeboten wird, ist meiner Meinung nach deutlich stabiler als die EQ-1, die bei anderen Spiegelteleskopen der gleichen Größenklasse mitkommt. Sie hat z.B. in der DEC-Achse ein Schneckenrad mit dem das Teleskop auch um diese Achse um ganze 360° gedreht werden kann. Und auch das Verstellen der Achsen zum genauen Einnorden- wenn man es für Fotografie denn braucht - ist zwar noch nicht optimal, aber doch deutlich besser als bei einer EQ-1. Die Montierung ist mit dem Pluto/s nicht überfordert und hat noch Spielraum für Zubehör.

Ein Nachführmotor für die RA-Achse ist relativ einfach an die Montierung anzubringen und erleichtert nicht nur das visuelle Beobachten, sowie Mond-, Sonnen- und Planetenaufnahmen, sondern macht meiner Erfahrung nach auch erste Aufnahmen von nicht zu dunklen Deep-Sky-Objekten möglich, wenn man die Belichtungszeit der Einzelaufnahmen in Grenzen halten kann (z.B. Orionnebel, Kugelsternhaufen). Die hohe Lichtstärke des Pluto ist hier wieder von Vorteil. Man muß sich aber bewusst sein, daß der Nachführmotor und die Montierung nicht mit Astrofotografie im Sinn gemacht wurden.

Um fotografisch die Grenzen noch etwas zu erweitern, habe ich das Stativ auf eine Art T aus Baulatten mit höhenverstellbaren Möbelfüßen gesetzt. Damit steht das Stativ schön stabil und kann einfach nivelliert werden. Die Plastikzahnstange des Okularauszuges des Pluto hat sich leider schnell abgenutzt, so daß ich die Idee hatte Innen- und Außenteil des Okularauszugs zu kürzen und wieder ineinander zu verkleben. Dies dient jetzt als Aufnahme für eine 1,25“-Steckhülse mit T2-Anschluß. Daran kann jedwedes T2-Zubehör angeschlossen werden, darunter z.B. ein nichtdrehender T2-Helikalauszug mit dem z.B. Astrokameras mit T2-Gewinde sehr gut fokussiert werden können.

Nach der Modifizierung des OAZ bin ich beim Nachmessen der Fokuslage darauf gekommen, daß der Backfokus groß genug sein müsste, um mit einem kurzbauenden T2-Adapter und dem T2-Helikalauszug auch eine DSLR anzuschließen. Dies ist natürlich meilenweit von der ursprünglich vorgesehenen Anwendung des Pluto/s entfernt, aber nur Versuch macht kluch. Und da die Verwendung eines Komakorrektors für den größeren Sensor einer DSLR nicht in Frage kam, habe ich wenigsten den Spiegel des Pluto auf F/6,25 mit einer einfachen schwarzen Pappscheibe abgeblendet um die Koma in den Ecken etwas in Schach zu halten - auf Kosten einer längeren Belichtungszeit. Um längere Deep-Sky-Bilder zu machen, habe ich die EQ-Sky auf Erholung geschickt und das Pluto/s auf einer EQ-5 mit Leitrohr befestigt. Mit der Standard-Prismenschiene des Pluto war auch das kein Problem.

Getestet habe ich am Orionnebel M42/M43 , an den Plejaden und an der Gegend um Alnitak mit dem Pferdekopfnebel mit Einzelaufnahmen bis zu 90sec und Gesamtbelichtungszeiten von jeweils über einer Stunde. Die DSLR war eine unmodifizierte Canon 1300D. Die Ergebnisse haben mich wieder angenehm überrascht, obwohl ich von „meinem“ Pluto/s schon einiges gewohnt war. Ja, in den Ecken sieht man noch Restkoma und wenn man genau hinschaut, sieht man, daß die DSLR leicht verkippt war – da hätte ich wohl sorgfältiger sein sollen. Aber mit einer leichten Beschneidung des Bildausschnitts und einer Verkleinerung der Auflösung sind Bilder entstanden, die ich so nicht von einem „visuellen Einsteigerkugelspiegel“ erwartet hätte.

Fazit

Als ich das Bresser Pluto/s gekauft habe, hatte ich nicht erwartet, daß das Teleskop mich soweit bringen und begleiten würde – erst recht nicht bis zur Deep-Sky-Fotografie mit einer DSLR. Das Pluto eignet sich gut, es etwas „aufzupeppen“. Es ist lichtstark, justierbar und kommt mit einer relativ stabilen Montierung daher. Das kompensiert zu einem großen Teil den etwas unschärferen Kugelspiegel. Bei ausgedehnteren Objekten fällt diese Unschärfe aber kaum auf.

Die volle Leistung des Pluto kommt nicht von selbst. Man muß sich damit auseinandersetzen und es pflegen. Wer sich aber mit dem Pluto beschäftigt und lernen will, für den ist es ein gutes, vielseitiges, ausbaubares Einsteigerteleskop zu einem günstigen Preis. Bei mir wird es einen speziellen Platz als mein erstes richtiges Teleskop haben, welches mich immer wieder mal angenehm überrascht hat.

Product information "BRESSER Pluto 114/500 EQ3 Reflector Telescope with Smartphone Adapter & Solar Filter"
Who doesn't dream of exploring the vastness of the universe with their own eyes? This complete telescope set comes with everything you need for your journey to open star clusters and distant emission nebulae: an astronomical reflecting telescope with 114 mm aperture and 500 mm focal length, an equatorial mount, a tripod and extensive accessories for astronomical observations. You can immediately start your very own adventure in astronomy, because the system is very easy to handle and transport. Especially wide-field observations in the Milky Way are a joy to watch through the beginner's telescope.

A classic for a start - the telescope 
With the classic reflector telescope, a so-called Newtonian reflector, you’ll achieve a successful start in sky observation. A special feature of this type of telescope is that you don’t look in at the back of the telescope, but at the side in the front. The advantage is the comfortable observation position. So you don't have to bend down when the entry-level telescope is pointed vertically into the sky. In terms of optics, these reflecting telescopes are impressive in that they are absolutely free of chromatic aberrations and offer good imaging properties

With its 114 mm aperture, the entry-level telescope already collects a lot of light from celestial objects. In addition, 114 mm aperture and 500 mm focal length result in a very short focal ratio (ratio of the aperture to the focal length) of about 1 to 4.4 (F/4.4). This causes the telescope to be very fast and to deliver an extremely bright image. The fast focal ratio and the short focal length cause the telescope to be a specialist for observing structures in the Milky Way and extended gas nebulae, for example the North America Nebula NGC 7000. This way a ''walk'' through the Milky Way with low magnification is simply a lot of fun. And you can choose the perfect place for it, because the entry-level telescope is very compact and therefore easily transported.

And how closely will you be able to look? The aperture of 114 mm offers a resolving power that allows magnifications of up to about 230x with sharp images. Technically, even higher magnifications are possible - theoretically up to 375x by using the included accessories. However, as the magnification increases, the sharpness of the image may slowly decrease. Of course, it is not only your telescope that determines how much you can magnify. The air turbulence in the atmosphere (seeing conditions) is also an important factor.

Note for nature lovers:
If you choose a Newtonian telescope like the Pluto reflector telescope, you can look forward to a specialist in astronomical observation. However, the image is always displayed sideways as well as upside down, which makes no difference when observing the sky. However, this type of telescope is less suitable for nature and landscape observations during the day. Would you also like to use your new telescope for exciting nature discoveries? Then we recommend that you choose one of the BRESSER refractor telescopes.

The perfect foundation for your astro-start - mount and tripod
Have you found the ideal location for your celestial observations? Then simply attach the telescope tube to the height-adjustable tripod with equatorial mount. It makes tracking particularly easy, because in contrast to an azimuthal mount, you do not need to move both axes at the same time. So you simply align one axis parallel to the Earth's axis by pointing it approximately at Polaris. This process is called ''alignment''. After that, you track your celestial bodies only on this one axis. Another plus of the mount are the two flexible shafts with fine adjustment. They make adjusting and tracking the beginner's telescope particularly precise and comfortable. Very handy: A storage plate mounted between the tripod legs allows easy access to your accessories.

Keep track of things automatically: For this telescope’s equatorial EQ-3 mount, the tracking motor with item number 4951400 is available as an optional accessory. This eliminates the need to manually track a celestial object set in the telescope. When this motor is installed at the mount, it automatically tracks the celestial object, keeping it in the field of view of the eyepiece. This makes observing the night sky even more comfortable!

Everything included - the accessories
Unpack, set up and start your journey of discovery across the night sky right away – for this purpose the astronomy set comes with all the necessary accessories. Get the perfect overview with the LED viewfinder. To do this, the viewfinder is simply installed parallel to the actual telescope. Turned on, it projects a red dot onto a small ground-glass screen. Look through it and it appears to hover in front of the night sky in exactly the direction in which you have aligned your entry-level telescope. Thus precise telescope alignment and finding celestial objects becomes child's play when you are using the LED viewfinder.

A larger field of view or more details? With the two eyepieces (4 mm and 20 mm) you can admire the objects in different magnifications. The 3x Barlow lens goes one better: it allows you to triple the magnification of the eyepieces.
But it doesn't have to stop there: If you ever want to expand your astronomy set, you can choose from a variety of additionally available eyepieces. After all, the socket diameter of 31.7 mm (1.25 inch) follows an international and manufacturer-independent standard.

Observe the star of our daytime sky completely safely – to this end a solar filter is included with the entry-level telescope. Take a closer look at the sunspots and marvel at the granulation on our very own star.
CAUTION: Never point the telescope at the Sun without the solar filter!

For quick snapshots of special discoveries, grab the smartphone camera adapter. This way you can delight yourself and your friends again and again with fascinating astrophotos, for example of the Moon or the Sun.

BRESSER Arcturus 60/700 AZ - Refractor Telescope with Smartphone Adapter & Solar Filter
Set up and start being amazed right away: the BRESSER Arcturus 60/700 AZ lens telescope takes you one step closer to the fascinating world of planets and star clusters. The complete astronomy set includes everything you need for your immediate start in celestial observation: an astronomical lens telescope with 60 mm aperture and 700 mm focal length, an azimuthal mount, a tripod and many accessories. The system is very easy to use – perfect for introducing children to the exciting hobby of astronomy. Simply an astronomical classic – the telescope A well-tried principle: this classic lens telescope – also called an achromatic refractor of the Fraunhofer type – shows beginners and children the beauties of the night sky. The starter telescope offers good imaging properties thanks to its modern, precisely coated optics. The large focal ratio of about 1 to 11.7 (F/11.7), which results from the ratio of the 60 mm aperture and 700 mm focal length, delivers sharp images with good contrast. Ideal for exploring our Moon, the planets, but also open star clusters and globular clusters with your own eyes. But how big do these celestial objects appear? With its resolving power determined by the aperture size, the telescope easily delivers really sharp images up to about 120x magnification. Technically, even more is possible using this beginner’s telescope – theoretically up to 525x with the included accessories. However, as the magnification increases, the image usually becomes more and more blurred. In addition, the telescope is not the only factor determining the possible magnification. The air turbulence in the atmosphere is always an important criterion as well (seeing conditions). Your foundation for moving observations – mount and tripod Once you have found the right location for your astronomical adventures, attach your telescope to the height-adjustable aluminium tripod with azimuthal mount. The easy handling of this azimuthal mount allows you to move effortlessly from one astronomical sight to the next. Simply swing the starter telescope manually to the left and right, up and down – just like a normal photo tripod. In order to keep eyepieces, solar filters etc. within reach at all times, just place your accessories on the practical storage plate between the tripod legs. Everything for your astro quickstart – the accessories In order to enable you to see as much as possible, the beginner’s telescope comes with an extensive range of accessories. With the LED viewfinder, for example, you can keep track of the sky. It’s a direction finder that you mount parallel to the actual telescope. It projects a red dot onto a small ground-glass screen. When you look through it, the red dot appears to be floating in front of the sky, exactly where the optics of your telescope are pointing. This makes it easier to find celestial objects and to align the telescope accurately – just before you look more closely with the higher magnification. And how high that is, you determine by choosing the appropriate eyepiece. Two are already included in the set: 4 mm and 20 mm. Moreover, you can triple the magnification of the eyepieces with the 3x Barlow-lens. If at some point you want to extend your field of view with additional eyepieces, this poses no problem at all. The socket diameter of 1.25 inch (31.7 mm) corresponds to an international and manufacturer-independent standard. This offers you a wide choice of optional eyepieces you can use with your telescope. For you to direct your gaze comfortably to star clusters and planets, the 90-degree diagonal mirror allows you to easily look into the starter telescope. This way you don't have to lie down under the entry-level telescope when the optics are pointing at the sky. Instead, you just look in from the side. However, not only the night holds numerous interesting sights for us. During the day, especially our nearest star is worth a look. So take the solar-filter and direct your gaze safely at sunspots and granulation on the Sun. WARNING: Never point the telescope at the Sun without the solar filter! If you want to capture and share your discoveries, just take photos of the Moon, Sun and more using the included smartphone adapter. FEATURES Beginner’s telescope for astronomy 60 mm aperture and 700 mm focal length Achromatic refractor type Fraunhofer Ideal for observing the Sun, Moon, planets and star clusters Height-adjustable tripod with azimuthal mount Easy to use, therefore suitable for children Focal ratio F=11.7, thus sharp image and high contrast Two eyepieces and one Barlow lens with 31.7 mm (1.25 inch) sockets for different magnifications Safe solar observation with the included solar-filter First steps in astrophotography with smartphone-camera-adapter SCOPE OF DELIVERY Starter lens telescope Aluminium tripod Azimuthal mount Eyepieces: 4 mm and 20 mm (1.25 inch sockets) Barlow-lens 3x (1.25 inch socket) Star diagonal mirror LED red dot finder Solar-filter Smartphone camera adapter Accessory tray Astronomy software for download Instruction manual

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.

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.

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 Moon, Sun, planets, open star clusters and globular clusters always make a good picture. Discover what our night sky has to offer with the BRESSER Sirius 70/900 AZ refracting telescope.

BRESSER Venus 76/700 AZ Reflector Telescope with Smartphone Adapter & Solar Filter
The BRESSER Venus 76/700 AZ reflecting telescope allows beginners to experience their very own stargazing hours quickly and easily. With the complete set, you are equipped with everything you need for your very own sky observations: an astronomical reflecting telescope with 76 mm aperture and 700 mm focal length, an azimuthal mount, a tripod as well as extensive accessories. And to guarantee a successful start in astronomy, the system is very easy to handle – the perfect first telescope for beginners! Established technology for your easy start – the telescope With this entry-level telescope, you will be able to admire the night sky through a classic Newtonian reflector. A little surprising for astronomy novices: with this particular type, you do not look in at the back of the telescope, but at the front and laterally. The advantage: even if the telescope aperture is directed vertically towards the sky, you can make your discoveries very comfortably. No need to bend down! In addition, the Newtonian reflector is very easy to use. The optics in this type of reflector telescopes are also impressive, because they are free of chromatic aberrations – resulting in good imaging properties at all times. A sharp image with good contrast – the Venus reflector telescope achieves this with its large focal ratio of about 1 to 9.2 (F/9.2 – calculated from 76 mm aperture and 700 mm focal length). Thanks to its long focal length, the telescope for beginners shows you the Moon, Sun, planets, open star clusters as well as globular clusters in a particularly impressive way. And all this at a magnification of up to 150x in really sharp images! Technically, you can magnify even higher – theoretically up to 525x while using the included accessories. However, as the magnification increases, the sharpness of the image may slowly decrease. Of course, how much you can magnify depends not only on the resolving power of your telescope. The air turbulence in the atmosphere (seeing conditions) also plays an important role. Note for nature lovers: If you choose a Newtonian telescope like the Venus reflector telescope, you can look forward to a specialist in astronomical observation. However, the image is always displayed laterally reversed as well as upside down, which makes no difference when observing the sky. However, this type of telescope is less suitable for nature and landscape observation during the day. Would you like to use your new telescope for exciting nature discoveries as well? Then we recommend that you choose one of the BRESSER refractor telescopes. A good foundation for a successful start – mount and tripod The height-adjustable aluminium tripod and the azimuthal mount provide a firm footing and easy celestial navigation. Especially the azimuthal mount makes life easy for beginners, because it is very user-friendly: just like a typical photo tripod, you turn the telescope by hand to the left and right, up and down. This way, your favourite celestial objects quickly appear in your field of vision. Handy: to ensure that your astronomy accessories are always within reach, there is a storage plate between the tripod legs. Everything that goes with it – the accessories Out of the box straight to the fun of observing – with the complete astronomy set, you are quickly on your way to discovering the universe. The LED viewfinder helps you keep an eye on the sky. You just mount the direction finder parallel to the actual telescope and it projects a red dot onto a small ground-glass screen. This then appears to be hovering in front of the sky when you look through the viewfinder. And it does so at exactly the same spot that your telescope is pointed at. This way, the LED finder helps you to align the reflector telescope precisely and to find the celestial objects more easily. When it comes to the level of detail in your observations, the Venus beginner's reflector telescope gives you a choice: the two included eyepieces (4 mm and 20 mm) allow you two different magnifications. You want to get an even closer look? Then simply triple the magnification of the eyepieces with the 3x Barlow lens. In addition, the socket diameter of 31.7 mm (1.25 inch) complies with an international and manufacturer-independent standard. So you can easily expand your set – and with it your astronomical horizon. If you want to observe fascinating sights not only at night but also during the day, simply grab the solar filter. With it, you can safely admire spots and granulation on our nearest star – the Sun. CAUTION: Never point the telescope at the Sun without the solar filter! A new hobby leads to new impressions – and naturally you want to capture and share those. Therefore, you can easily use your mobile phone for your first steps into astrophotograpy with the smartphone adapter. Perfect for great snapshots of the Moon or the Sun, for example. Look forward to exciting astronomical discoveries by day and night – with the BRESSER Venus 76/700 AZ reflector telescope.

BRESSER Spica-II 130/1000 EQ3 Reflector Telescope with Smartphone Adapter & Solar Filter
Embark on a voyage of discovery through our solar system and beyond using the BRESSER Spica-II reflector telescope. You can start straight away with your new hobby, because this complete astronomy set already comes with everything you need for exciting observations: an astronomical reflector telescope with 130 mm aperture and 1000 mm focal length, an equatorial mount, a tripod and extensive accessories. Perfect for the astro-novice: the system is very easy to use. So look forward to fascinating sights especially of the Moon, the planets and the Sun. Perfect combination of mirror and lens – the telescope Using the Spica-II you’ll start your celestial exploration tour with a classic reflecting telescope of the "Newton" type with an additional lens inside the focuser. This combination of mirror and lens is called "catadioptric". It’s immediately noticeable with this type of telescope that you do not look in at the back, but at the front and laterally. What is the advantage? Even if the telescope is pointed vertically into the sky, you can observe the beauties of the night sky in a comfortable posture. In addition, catadioptric telescopes impress with their transportability, because despite the long focal length, the tube is comparatively short. With its 130 mm aperture, the Spica-II already collects a lot of light from celestial objects. In addition, 130 mm aperture and 1000 mm focal length result in a focal ratio (ratio of aperture to focal length) of 1 to 7.7 (F/7.7). This means you can enjoy an image with good contrast even at high magnifications. Thus, the telescope is well suited for observing the planets and details on the Moon. Even some deep sky objects are worth looking at through this entry-level telescope: admire open star clusters and globular clusters as well as bright so-called planetary nebulae such as the Ring Nebula M57 in the constellation Lyra. And how big will the nocturnal highlights appear? The 130 mm aperture achieves a resolution that allows magnifications of up to about 260x with sharp images. Technically, even more is possible – theoretically up to 750x with the included accessories. However, as the magnification increases, the sharpness of the image may slowly decrease. In addition, as is so often the case in astronomy, you are also dependent on the prevailing conditions. For example, the air turbulence in the atmosphere (seeing conditions) always plays a role in your magnification possibilities. Note for nature lovers: If you choose a Newtonian telescope like the Spica-II reflector telescope, you can look forward to a specialist in astronomical observation. However, the image is always displayed laterally reversed as well as upside down, which makes no difference when observing the sky. However, this type of telescope is less suitable for nature and landscape observation during the day. Would you like to use your new telescope for exciting nature discoveries as well? Then we recommend that you choose one of the BRESSER refractor telescopes. A good foundation for your astro-start – mount and tripod If you want to look up at the sky, you need a solid base on the ground. That's why you will find a robust height-adjustable aluminium tripod and an equatorial mount in your telescope set. The special advantage of this type of mount: unlike an azimuthal model, the movement of the celestial bodies is compensated for only on one axis instead of two. For this purpose, one axis of the equatorial mount is aligned parallel to the Earth's axis in the course of the so-called "alignment". This is easily done by pointing it approximately at Polaris. Perfect for convenient adjustment and tracking of the entry-level telescope: the axes can be moved precisely via the two flexible shafts with fine adjustment. And if you simply place smartphone adapter, eyepieces etc. on the convenient storage plate between the tripod legs, you will have the equipment you need quickly at hand.Keep track of things automatically: For this telescope’s equatorial EQ-3 mount, the tracking motor with item number 4951400 is available as an optional accessory. This eliminates the need to manually track a celestial object set in the telescope. When this motor is installed at the mount, it automatically tracks the celestial object, keeping it in the field of view of the eyepiece. This makes observing the night sky even more comfortable! Everything for the astro-beginner – the accessoriesFor your start into the wonderful world of astronomy, the Spica-II beginner's telescope comes with lots of accessories. The LED viewfinder, for example, is great for orientation in the night sky. You simply install the direction finder parallel to the actual telescope. 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. In this way, it shows you where the telescope is pointing. A great help for the exact alignment of the telescope and the easy location of celestial objects before you gaze at them with higher magnifications. You determine how detailed you observe your discoveries by using one of the two eyepieces, each of which provides a different magnification. They are fitted with standard 1.25-inch (31.7 mm) diameter sockets which allow them to be easily inserted into the eyepiece focuser of the entry-level telescope. Would you like to look even closer? Then grab the 3x barlow lens, which triples the magnification of the eyepieces in no time. Explore the astronomical highlight of the daytime sky: With the safe solar filter you can examine sunspots as well as granulation on the Sun. CAUTION: Never point the telescope at the Sun without the solar filter! There is also a suitable accessory for your first steps in astrophotography: with the smartphone adapter, you can use your mobile phone as a camera on the telescope. First snapshots of the Moon or Sun made easy!

BRESSER Messier 5" Dobson
NEW - now including a high-quality aperture Solar-filter for safe observation of sunspots, eclipses and planet transits. Great telescope for night and solar observation. The BRESSER Messier 5" dobsonian is simply a breakthrough. Despite of its low price this telescope offers a versatility and quality rivaling a lot more expensive telescopes. Not only for beginners - also enthusiastic and experienced amateur astronomers love this high performance and compact telescope for traveling and to discover the night sky. The main goal of this telescope is the quick setup and the ease of use. Simply put the Messier 5" Dobson telescope on a table in your backyard, point the telescope to your target object and you are ready to start your observation. The Messier 5" Dobson is almost pre-assembled ex factory which means you can start within minutes. With the included standard accessories (LED-finder, 25mm and 9mm Kellner eyepieces and Moonfilter) the telescope is ready for observing. The inbuild compass and circular level speeds up the telescopes orientation. The optical diameter of 130mm (5") does not restrict your observations on solar system objects like the moon or the planets - you can reach farther into the sky and explore globular and open clusters, nebulae and galaxies. Finding and observing is much easier with that light gathering richfield telescope. Bresser also has equipped these dobsonians with a high quality main mirror which offers a very good sharpness and contrast. In addition, this telescope has a particularly large secondary mirror for ideal illumination of the image field.The optical tube can easily be moved inside the tube rings in order to find the optimal balance and observing position. This is another virtue of this highly versatile telescope system: Remove the optical tube from the dobsonian telescope mount and use the optics on a equatorial mount for astrophotography with smartphones und eyepiece cameras - in minutes. Bresser has not skimped and this telescope has a particularly large secondary mirror for ideal illumination of the field of view. The entire telescope tube can be moved and rotated in the tube clamps - everything is thus balanced in a flash and a comfortable position for viewing is set. A permanently installed compass with circular bubble facilitates the orientation of the telescope. This telescope is setting a new standard in usability, versatility and performance in its price class.Please note: Reflector telescopes with optical design “Newton” are very good for astronomical observing at the starry night sky. But these telescopes are not well usable for observing landscape and nature during daylight. Therefore we suggest BRESSER refractor (lens) telescopes for landscape and nature observing.
