Product information "BRESSER Polaris-I 102/460 EQ3 Refractor Telescope with Smartphone Adapter & Solar Filter"
The view of the night sky holds countless fascinating sights in store for us. The BRESSER Polaris-I 102/460 EQ3 lens telescope comes with everything you need for a quick and easy start in astronomy: an astronomical lens telescope with 102 mm aperture and 460 mm focal length, an equatorial mount, a tripod and a wide range of accessories. The system is extremely easy to handle - perfect for newcomers to the exciting hobby of astronomy. Moreover, due to its compact dimensions, the entry-level telescope is ideally suited as a travel telescope. So find the perfect observation site and enjoy an exciting ''walk'' through the Milky Way.

Classic telescope for a new generation of stargazers – the telescope
Children and beginners in particular benefit from the classic design of this lens telescope, which is also called an achromatic refractor according to Fraunhofer. This is mainly due to its easy handling – ideal for your fist steps in celestial observation. The entry-level telescope owes its good imaging properties to the optics’ modern, precise coating.

The 102 mm aperture already collects a lot of light from the celestial objects. But it is due to the very short focal ratio (ratio of 102 mm aperture and 460 mm focal length) of about 1 to 4.5 (F/4.5) that you can enjoy an extra-bright image. Another advantage of the combination of short focal length and fast focal ratio: the beginner's telescope shows you the details in the Milky Way and extended gas nebulae such as the North America Nebula NGC 7000 particularly impressively. This makes a ''trip'' through the Milky Way with low magnification so much fun. However, the telescope will also give you a lot of pleasure while travelling on Earth, because it is very compact and thus perfect as a travel telescope.

And what about the magnification? Here, too, the aperture of 102 mm shows its effect: It gives the telescope a resolving power that easily allows magnifications of up to about 200x with sharp images. From a purely technical point of view, this is by no means the limit – with the included accessories, you can theoretically magnify up to 345x. The image sharpness can slowly decrease with increasing magnification, though. However, the degree of magnification achievable does not only depend on your telescope. The air turbulence in the atmosphere (seeing conditions) also influences your astronomical observations.

Set up, align, start marvelling – mount and tripod
Found the perfect location for your observations? Then attach the telescope tube to the eight-adjustable aluminium tripod with equatorial mount and off you go. The special advantage of equatorial mounts: Unlike with an azimuthal mount, you don't need to move both axes at the same time. Instead, you align one axis parallel to the Earth's axis by pointing it approximately at the polar star. Then you simply track the movement of the celestial bodies just on this one axis.

Because you move the axes via two flexible shafts with fine adjustment, you can adjust and track the beginner's telescope very precisely and comfortably. And for quick access to all your accessories, simply place them on the tray between the tripod legs.

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!

Must-haves for star observation – the accessories
In order for you to start stargazing right away, the astronomy set comes with many accessories. With the LED viewfinder, you can easily keep track of the sky. Just install the viewfinder parallel to the actual telescope and it projects a red dot onto a small ground-glass screen. When you look through it, this dot appears to be floating in front of the sky. Not just anywhere, but exactly at the point at which your telescope aperture is currently pointing. This allows you to align your telescope more precisely and find the celestial objects you have chosen for your night-time exploration much more easily.

As with everything else, a change of perspective is always fun. Therefore, the two eyepieces (4 mm and 20 mm) allow you to view the objects in different magnifications – and thus enjoy completely different views. You want to see even more details? Then triple the magnification of the eyepieces with the 3x Barlow lens. The telescope for beginners is also flexible when it comes to upgrades: the diameter of the sockets is 31.7 mm (1.25 inches), which is an international standard that applies to all manufacturers. So you can choose from a large variety of additionally available eyepieces.

In order for you to explore the universe with ease, the 90-degree star diagonal mirror always offers a comfortable view into the beginner’s telescope. Even if the telescope is pointed vertically upwards into the sky, you simply look in from the side – and just enjoy the view.

But it is not only at night that the sky attracts our attention with spectacular highlights. In the daytime sky, our nearest star is particularly worth seeing. You can observe it completely safely using the solar filter. You will be amazed once you take a closer look at the sunspots and the granulation on the Sun.
CAUTION: Never point the telescope at the Sun without the solar filter!

Capture your favourite moments of sky observation. You can easily take your first steps in astrophotography by using the smartphone camera adapter – for impressive snapshots of the Sun and Moon, for example.

Set off on your very own voyage of discovery to the Sun, Moon and through the Milky Way – with the BRESSER Polaris-I 102/460 EQ3 refractor telescope.

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 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. FEATURES Reflector telescope for beginners with 76 mm aperture and 700 mm focal length Reflector type Newton Good for observing Sun, Moon, planets and star clusters Height-adjustable tripod with azimuthal mount Easy to use even by beginners Focal ratio F/9.2, thus sharp image and good contrast Two eyepieces and a Barlow lens with 31.7 mm (1.25 inch) sockets for different magnifications Safe solar observation with the included solar filter First steps into astrophotography with included smartphone camera adapter SCOPE OF DELIVERY Refractor telescope Aluminium tripod Azimuthal mount Eyepieces: 4 mm and 20 mm (1.25 inch sockets) Barlow lens 3x (1.25 inch socket) LED illuminated dot finder Solar filter Smartphone camera adapter Accessory tray Astronomy software download Instruction manual

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 Lyra 70/900 EQ3 Refractor Telescope with Smartphone Adapter & Solar Filter
Unpack, set up, enjoy – with this complete telescope set you will soon begin your first exploration of the night sky. All the equipment for your new, exciting hobby is already included: the lens telescope with 70 mm aperture and 900 mm focal length, the equatorial mount, the tripod and a wide range of accessories for astronomical observations. Ideal for beginners: the system is very easy to handle and can even be used by children. Well-proven design for an easy beginning – the telescope With this set you'll start your voyage of discovery to the stars with a classic refracting telescope, a so-called achromatic refractor of the Fraunhofer type. The advantage of this particular design: even beginners as well as children can use it with ease. In addition, the Lyra refracting telescope impresses with good imaging properties due to its modern, precisely coated optics. If you compare this entry-level telescope to a corresponding astronomical telescope with a 60 mm aperture, you will notice: With its 70 mm aperture, the Lyra already collects 36 % more light. It also offers better resolution. In addition, 70 mm aperture and 900 mm focal length result in a very large focal ratio (ratio of aperture to focal length) of about 1 to 12.9 (F/12.9). The impressive result: a very sharp image with good contrast. Enjoy the view of our natural satellite, the Moon. Or take a look at the planets. Even the famous Pleiades sparkle captivatingly in your field of view. For the long focal length makes the telescope a specialist for observing the Moon, Sun, planets and open as well as globular clusters. And how big will these eye-catchers of the sky appear? Thanks to the 70 mm aperture, the resolution allows magnifications of up to 140x with really sharp images. Technically, much more would be possible – theoretically up to 675x using the included accessories. However, then the image sharpness could slowly decrease with increasing magnification. Of course – as with everything in astronomy – the prevailing conditions also play a role: So, how much you can actually magnify is determined not only by your telescope's performance but also by the air turbulence in the atmosphere (seeing conditions). Perfect foundation for your glimpse into space – mount and tripod Once you have found the ideal location for your astronomical telescope, you can quickly start exploring the sky. Simply mount the tube with the equatorial mount on the height-adjustable aluminium tripod. This special type of mount has the advantage of particularly convenient tracking: for this purpose, an axis is aligned parallel to the Earth's axis by pointing it approximately at Polaris during the so-called "alignment". Afterwards, the movement of the celestial bodies can be conveniently compensated for on this one axis rather than on both at the same time, as is the case with an azimuthal mount. In addition, the two flexible shafts with fine adjustment ensure the very precise and comfortable adjustment and tracking of the entry-level telescope. Always the right accessories at hand: the storage plate between the tripod legs provides space for eyepieces, barlow lens, solar filter etc.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! All-round equipment for astronomy newbies – the accessories Moon, planets or the Sun – with the extensive accessories you will get the best out of your astronomical telescope for any observation object. But initially, the LED viewfinder helps you find the nocturnal celestial bodies in the first place. To do this, the direction finder is installed and aligned parallel to the actual telescope. When you then look through it, a small red dot appears to hover in front of the sky. It shows you the spot at which the telescope is pointed. In this way, you precisely align the tube and easily find your objects before you gaze at them through the higher magnification of the telescope. Change of perspective for stargazers: using the two eyepieces you achieve different magnifications. They can be switched easily: With their standard socket diameter of 1.25 inches (31.7 mm), they are simply inserted into the eyepiece focuser of the entry-level telescope. Looking for even more detail? Then grab the 3x barlow lens and triple the magnification of the eyepieces. Comfortable observation at all times: a 90-degree star diagonal mirror is included. So, even if the telescope points vertically upwards into the sky, you can still look in comfortably from the side.

BRESSER Polaris-II 102/600 EQ3 Refractor Telescope with Smartphone Adapter & Solar Filter
NEW - now including a high-quality aperture Solar-filter for safe observation of sunspots, eclipses and planet transits. With the included smartphone camera adapter you can take pictures of your observations right through the telescope's eyepiece. Moon, planets, stars – the BRESSER Polaris-II 102/600 EQ3 lens telescope takes beginners a lot closer to the beauties of the universe. The complete set comes with everything you need to admire the night sky: the astronomical lens telescope with 102 mm aperture and 600 mm focal length, the equatorial mount, the tripod and a wide range of accessories for exciting astronomical observations. Explore the fascinating surface of the moon and marvel at the sight of the planets. But you can go even further than that, because the entry-level telescope also shows you star clusters and gas nebulae in the deep sky range. Operation is very easy – so you are off to a successful start in astronomy in no time. Getting started in astronomy with a classic – the telescope Effortless handling, impressive images: As an easy-to-use Fraunhofer-type achromatic refractor, this classic lens telescope is the perfect first telescope for beginners and children. Thanks to its modern, precisely coated optics, it offers good imaging properties as well. The 102 mm aperture already collects a lot of light from the celestial objects. In addition, 102 mm aperture and 600 mm focal length result in an average focal ratio (ratio of aperture to focal length) of about 1 to 6 (F/6). Because of this average focal ratio the beginner’s telescope is an all-rounder for all celestial objects. So observe interesting details on the moon and planets with high magnifications. Or choose a medium to low magnification and admire the sight of open star clusters such as the Pleiades, globular clusters like M13 or gas nebulae like the Orion Nebula M42. Speaking of magnifications: How big will the celestial objects appear through this telescope for beginners? The aperture of 102 mm achieves a resolving power that easily allows magnifications of up to about 200x with sharp images. Technically, the telescope can do more. However, with increasing magnification, the images can become blurred. And the telescope is not the only factor determining the possible degree of magnification. The air turbulence in the atmosphere (seeing conditions) also plays a major role. Solid base for your celestial exploration – mount and tripod Found the perfect observation site? Then set up the telescope on the height-adjustable aluminium tripod with equatorial mount. The advantage of equatorial mounts: Unlike with an azimuthal mount, you don’t have to move both axes at the same time. Instead, one axis is simply aligned parallel to the Earth's axis at the beginning. In this so-called alignment, you point the axis in the direction of the polar star. After that, you can track the celestial bodies just on this one axis. Another benefit of this mount: you move the axes via two flexible shafts with fine adjustment. Perfect for delicate as well as comfortable adjustment and tracking of the entry-level telescope. To ensure that your accessories are always within reach during fascinating discoveries, there is an extra storage plate between the tripod legs.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 your first steps in stargazing – the accessories The astronomy set contains lots of accessories so that you can immediately set off on your discovery tour of the night sky. Use the LED finder to precisely align your beginner's telescope and thus find celestial objects more easily. You just have to install the direction finder in parallel on your telescope. It projects a red dot onto a small ground-glass screen that appears to be floating in front of the sky when you look through. Since the aperture of your telescope points in the exact same direction, this helps you to keep track of the night sky. Two eyepieces (K-20mm, K-4mm) are included so that you can admire celestial bodies in two different magnifications. Still not enough for you? Then simply triple the magnification of the eyepieces with the 3x Barlow lens. And should you ever wish to change perspective during your astronomical observations, the standard tube diameter of 31.7 mm (1.25 inch) gives you a wide choice of additionally available eyepieces. The 90-degree star diagonal mirror, on the other hand, provides more convenience and a comfortable view. Even if your entry-level telescope is pointed vertically upwards, you can simply look in from the side. Discover the wonderful world of astronomy with the BRESSER Polaris-II 102/600 EQ3 lens telescope.
