Explore Scientific ReflexSight LED Finder
A new take on a classic design, superior to the usual red dot finder - which will fit many telescopes and larger binoculars.Explore Scientific ReflexSight™ LED projection viewfinder, uses proven functionality with versatility, while having enhanced performance features.Looking through this viewfinder shows multiple deep red target circles projected against the night sky.  Both eyes can be used for quick and easy star hopping, in order to target objects in your telescope. The big advantage is that you can see the entire night sky without magnification and not just a small section of the sky, as you would through a magnified finderscope.  This makes Goto aligning quick and easy and speeds up acquisition of targets.New "Multi-Dot" target circle pattern (in standard circle diameters of 4.0 degrees, 2.0 degrees and 0.5 degrees), prevents blocking of stars within the field of view.  Using the widths of the projected circles as reference points allows those users with non-goto telescopes to easily work out the location of non-visible targets, with reference to more easily visible stars.  The projection screen size is a generous 55 x 35 mm.Multiple mounting options. The Explore Scientific ReflexSight™ LED projection viewfinder's base fits standard "Vixen-style dovetail" finder bases, allowing the user to attach this finder to a wife array of commercially-available telescopes, without modifying the telescope itself. A ¼ inch x 20G threaded adapter (photo tripod thread) is built into the finder base, allowing the finder to be attached to a variety of telescopes, via piggyback camera adapters with a photo tripod threaded hole.Functional design and intuitive use: the smooth housing, with no sharp corners, prevents snagging. Easily accessible battery compartment, taking 2x standard AAA alkaline batteries (not included), which power the frugal LED illuminator. The low power consumption of the LED lighting ensures a long operating time. Large, continuously adjustable brightness control with knurled knob head can be easily operated with gloves. Click the rotary switch to turn off completely. Rear-facing, tool-free three-point parallax knurled collimation knobs, again, easy to operate even with gloved hands, ensure you are well locked-on to the main optical axis of your telescope. The projection screen is coated, to minimise annoying reflections and allow you to concentrate on the finder's target and the night sky behind it.  Comes complete with screen and optics cover. The extremely compact design allows mounting even on small, lightweight telescopes - truly a finder for all!FEATURESReflexSight LED projection finder with deep red target circles Standard circle diameters 4.0 degrees, 2.0 degrees and 0.5 degreesProjection screen size: 55 x 35 mmFits standard Vixen-style dovetail finder shoes There is also a ¼ inch x 20G female photo tripod thread in the base Can be mounted via piggyback camera adapters etc. Operates on standard AAA batteries (not included) Smooth housing with no sharp corners, prevents snagging Comes complete with optics and screen cover Compact design and easily accessible battery compartment Large, continuously adjustable brightness control with knurled knob Click switch to turn off completely Tool-free three-point collimation parallax adjustment with easily accessible knurled knobs Can also be mounted on small and light telescopes WHAT'S INCLUDEDReflexSight LED projection finder

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 10x60 Finder and Guider Scope with Helical Focuser, 1.25inch and T2 connection
Universal 60mm viewfinder and guide telescope with a focal length of 250mmExcellent 10x60 viewfinder telescope with removable eyepiece unit and crosshairs with adjustable red illumination. The larger aperture and focal length, provide an even brighter field of view and more accurate tracking due to the higher resolution. The precise helical focuser and the 1.25 inch /31.7mm plug-in connection, as well as the T2 camera connection thread (M42x0.75mm), allow the autoguiding required for long time exposure to obtain a point-shaped star image. It can also be used as a mini travel telescope.High quality 10x60 viewfinder telescope with adjustable crosshair illuminationImage sharpness and viewing characteristics lift this viewfinder well above the level of the usual 10x60 viewfinder scopes. The visible image is bright and crisply sharp. Furthermore, this viewfinder has a very large field of view (FOV) of 6.0 degrees. This makes finding and adjusting objects much easier. The existing scale markings (pitch=0.85 degree) on the crosshair are a good reference for estimating distances, and the open centre markings also make it easier to centre objects precisely. All lens surfaces are protected against weathering by multi-coating and guarantee a bright viewfinder image due to the high light transmission values. The adjustable red LED illumination unit is powered by two LR41 coin batteries. The main lens and the crosshairs can be focused independently of each other, giving you perfect focus for your eyes.Compact tracking unit for autoguidingOne of the main applications for this telescope is the so-called autoguiding. Here the usually larger photo-taking optics are actively corrected by a smaller guiding telescope with a second tracking camera. This means that the mechanical fluctuations in the tracking accuracy, which are present in all astronomical telescope mounts, are measured by the tracking camera and compensated accordingly. This is necessary in order to obtain a point-shaped star image on the astrophotos during long time exposures and to avoid unwanted star trails. For this purpose, the guiding telescope is inserted into the existing viewfinder shoe of the photo-taking optics and aligned parallel. If the existing viewfinder shoe is not compatible, a suitable viewfinder shoe is also included. With the 1.25 inch / 31,7mm plug connection at the rear end or via T2 thread connection (M42x0,75mm), a tracking camera can be mounted afterwards. This is held securely by a brass ring clamp and 3 clamping screws. Please note the required back focus for your tracking camera. The focal plane (backfocus) is approx. 22mm behind the T2 thread. The sensitive focusing on the guiding star is done by a large knurled wheel of the mechanically precise manufactured helical focuser. For easy reproduction of the point of focus, this has a white millimetre scale from 0 to 28mm, which is attached by laser engraving. After the tracking camera has been connected directly or via computer to the telescope mount and the necessary basic settings have been made, the first astrophotos with long time exposure can be taken.Use as mini travel telescopeThis viewfinder and guide telescope can also be used quite simply as a mini travel telescope. With the optional eyepieces, a magnification of 9x to 50x can be achieved. Nearly all eyepieces with a focal length of 5 to 26mm and 1.25 inch/31.7mm plug connection are suitable. Especially recommended are the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC eyepieces of the 52 degree (Art. 02195xx) and 62 degree (02196xx) LER series. Note: Only straight view use is possible.Metal viewfinder holder and viewfinder shoeThe mount of this viewfinder and guide telescope is completely made of aluminium and is a stable base. The viewfinder mount is suitable for many common types of telescopes, such as EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC, BRESSER MESSIER etc. If the existing viewfinder shoe is not compatible, a matching viewfinder shoe is also included. This can be attached to the telescopic tube by means of four M5 screws. The bore distances of the viewfinder shoe are 31.7mm on the longitudinal and transverse axis. The six large adjustment screws with non-slip knurling make it easy to align the viewfinder, even with clammy fingers. All adjusting and clamping screws have plastic tips that effectively prevent the viewfinder housing and viewfinder mount from being scratched.FEATURESExcellent 10x60 viewfinder and guiding telescopeCan also be used as mini travel telescopePerfect image sharpness and good viewing comfortFMC Multi-coated lens surfacesLens focal length: 250mmMax. possible camera weight: 550gRemovable eyepiece/cross hair unitCamera connection via 1.25 inch / 31.7mm plug connection or T2 threadT2 thread: M42 x 0,75mmPrecise helical focuser for focusing the visible imageFocuser travel range: 28mmClose focus distance: 3 mLaser engraved millimetre scale from 0 to 28mm on the focuserFocal plane (backfocus) is approx. 22mm behind the T2 threadSeparate focusing of the crosshair at the eyepieceVery large field of view FOV of 6.0 degreesWith adjustable red cross-hair iillumination Scale markings crosshair with 0,85 degree graduationPower supply of illumination unit: coin battery type LR41 (2pcs)Brass ring clamp and 3 clamping screws on the 1.25 inch plug connectionWith optional eyepieces magnifications from 9x to 50x can be achievedSuitable are almost all eyepieces with 1.25 inch/31,7mm shaftMounting of the viewfinder telescope is completely made of aluminiumViewfinder mount with 6 large adjustment screws with knurled head for easy gripFinder shoe suitable for EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC, BRESSER MESSIER etc.Additionally a suitable viewfinder shoe is includedBore distances of the viewfinder shoe are 31.7mm on the longitudinal and transverse axisAdjusting and clamping screws have plastic tipsWHAT'S INCLUDED10x60 viewfinder/guiding telescopeEyepiece unit with crosshairCrosshair illumination unit incl. batteriesViewfinder holder with viewfinder shoeInstruction manual

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC TELRAD Projection Finder Scope with base
The TELRAD viewfinder is a projection finder that can be installed on any telescope and makes it child's play to align the telescope with the starry sky.The TELRAD viewfinder is a practical alternative to classic optical viewfinders and illuminated red dot viewfinders. You can see the complete starry sky without magnification, and not just a small section as with a normal optical viewfinder. Against this background of the starry sky, three red luminous concentric rings are projected, with apparent diameters of 4 degrees, 2° and 0.5° in the sky. Move the telescope so that the object you are looking for is in the inner ring, and the telescope points in the right direction. Because the object you are looking for is inside the ring, it will not be irradiated like a normal illuminated red dot finder.The base of the TELRAD viewfinder is self-adhesive and can be mounted on all telescopic tubes from about 10cm diameter. The length of the base is about 18cm. This base remains on the telescopic tube, the TELRAD viewfinder itself can be removed or attached at any time by means of the attached quick coupling. The TELRAD is powered by two normal AA batteries (not included).There are star atlases, like the "Deep Sky Travel Atlas" from Oculum-Verlag, and planetarium programs for the PC, like the program "Stellarium", where the three rings of the TELRAD are already drawn or can be displayed around the interesting celestial objects. This makes finding these celestial objects a real walk.FEATURESTELRAD projection finderIlluminated rings of 4 degrees, 2° and 0.5° in the skySee the complete starry sky without magnificationEasy installation and useCan be installed on nearly every telescopesBase with quick release coupling included Powered by two AA batteries (not included) Very long battery life because of LED technologySCOPE OF DELIVERYTELRAD viewfinder with projector and battery compartment TELRAD base with quick-release coupling for the viewfinder Adhesive tape for attachment to telescope

Vixen SX2WL VC200L Telescope Set
SX2WL VC200L telescope set, complete with GoTo mount, tripod and eyepieces.This high-quality telescope set impresses with its large 200 mm Cassegrain mirror optics with flattner optimised for photography. The telescope is manufactured in Japan and scores with its excellent workmanship, sharpness and contrast performance. The advantage of this telescope lies in its short open design and its low weight. You will be amazed when you use it to observe the surface of the moon with its craters or Saturn with its ring system. On a good night, many smaller details will be visible in the cloud bands on Jupiter, such as the large red spot on the planet. On moonless nights, you can observe the Andromeda Nebula, Orion Nebula, Eagle Nebula, Lagoon Nebula and many other interesting fainter objects. The brighter globular star clusters can be easily resolved into individual stars. This telescope set "Made in Japan" simply leaves nothing to be desired. The large 60 mm focuser also allows heavy cameras to be attached without tilting. Furthermore, the supplied folding mirror allows comfortable observation even in unfavourable observation situations and also offers a T2 thread for connecting a DSLR camera. This allows you to observe in a degree view or at a 90° angle. The carrying handle attached to the tube clamps ensures a secure grip when transporting the telescope. The sturdy metal tripod allows the telescope and mount to be mounted without vibration even in windy weather.​The ultra-modern SX2WL mount is simply operated via a Wi-Fi module with your smartphone or tablet.By simply controlling the mount with your smartphone or tablet and using the free STAR BOOK Wireless app, you can easily use sky navigation functions such as automatic GoTo panning for many celestial objects. By eliminating the conventional LCD display (STAR BOOK TEN), the power consumption on the mount is reduced by up to 20%, thus enabling longer astronomical observation and astrophotography.When you touch the desired celestial object on the star chart, it is automatically pointed into the telescope's field of view and tracking begins.NOTE: An existing STAR BOOK TEN or ONE controller can also be used on this mount without any problems.Equipped with the same precision stepper motors as the top model, the AXD mount, the SX2WL brings a new standard of performance and precision to the Vixen mount family.With a photographic load capacity of 12 kg, the axis cross of the mount is just 7 kg light, making it ideal for mobile observations. In addition, the motors mounted in the lower part of the mount also serve as a counterweight and the mount therefore requires fewer weights for balancing.The SX2WL mount in detailPrecision stepper motors and micro-step motion control systemAt the heart of the SX2 are the precision stepper motors, which offer better performance and response than previous models. The micro-step motion control system scores with powerful yet very smooth drive characteristics, which are present in both fine movements and fast pans.Built-in bearingsThe bearings of the RA and DEC axes and the worm shafts have been significantly improved to reduce the load on the motors. As a result, the motors move much more smoothly than in previous models.High-precision worm gearsHigh-precision processing technologies eliminate worm gear errors. The running surfaces of the two worms and worm wheels are manufactured to be particularly smooth, enabling very precise tracking.Declination axis as counterweightThe massive motor units are installed in the lower part of the declination axis so that the center of gravity of the SX2WL is below the intersection point of the RA and DEC axes. This means you need fewer additional counterweights.Latitude adjustmentThe latitude is adjustable between 0 and 70 degrees (divided into 3 zones and adjustable in +/- 15 degrees per zone, for high, medium and low latitudes); latitude scale in 2-degree increments; fine adjustment with a tangent screw head, approx. 0.8 degrees per turn.The wireless module in detailThe Vixen Wifi adapter for EQ mounts allows you to control your Vixen mount via a smartphone or tablet. With the smartphone app "STAR BOOK Wireless" (free of charge) you can navigate the sky without any cables. The "STAR BOOK Wireless" smartphone app transforms your smartphone or tablet into a control unit for the equatorial mount in no time at all. The response delay of the mount, which is considered the biggest disadvantage of wireless connections, has been reduced to a level comparable to wired connections.Reduced power consumption compared to conventional controllers with LCD monitorThe power consumption of the mount is reduced by up to 20%, allowing longer observations than with conventionalwired controllers such as the STAR BOOK TEN.Operation similar to the STAR BOOK TEN control unitThe STAR BOOK Wireless app has a similar structure to the STAR BOOK TEN control system. Depending on the star map setting, it contains up to 259,000 celestial objects. Tap on a celestial object in the object list and start the GoTo.The mount will now automatically move to this target and bring it into the telescope's field of view.All the popular features of the STAR BOOK TEN are retainedConvenient operationWhen looking through the telescope operate the mount by swiping on the app's star chart. As there are no buttons, simply slide your finger over the star chart to operate the mount conveniently.Extensive astronomical data includedIn addition to data on easily observable celestial bodies such as Messier objects, NGC objects and IC objects, this also includes the sun, moon, planets, comets and dwarf planets.High-precision alignmentBy aligning the mount to one or two stars, you can already achieve fairly precise positioning of the mount. By aligning to three or more stars, you can achieve high-precision alignment of the mount for high magnifications. The objects are then approached precisely and centrally in the field of view of your telescope. The alignment information is saved and can be retained even when the device is switched off. By leaving the telescope in its current state after completing an observation without moving it, you can start the automatic installation with the same settings for the next observation.Individual setting optionsAs with the STAR BOOK TEN controller, the app offers various individual settings, such as gear backlash compensation, night mode in red, autoguider, variable GoTo speed and LED brightness. You can also set the timing of the reversal of the objective tube (meridian flip) as required.Even if the object moves to the south during tracking, you can prevent the telescope tube from reversing.Important information: Cannot be used on old SX mounts with the old blue star bookTechnical informationCPU with 32-bit CISC processor 120 MHzThe unit is connected to the mount via a D-SUB 9PIN connector as is the STAR BOOK TEN.It has a 6-pin, 6-wire modular connector for external autoguider operation.Supported operating systems are Android 6 or higher, iOS 9.0 or higher, WLAN standard: IEEE 802.11b/g/n・The VC200L telescope in detail The Vixen VC200L photo machine for high magnification and resolution with revolutionary coating technology In astrophotography, there are two favourites: Short focal lengths for wide-field shots as well as extensive deep-sky objects, and long focal lengths for those objects that are further away and very small. This is precisely where our aspherical mirror optics come into play. The VISAC primary mirror (= Vixen Sixth-Order Aspheric Cassegrain) is specifically designed for astrophotography and delivers an entirely flat and true-colour image across the image frame. Spherical aberration, coma, and field curvature are absolutely foreign to this optics. The reason for this is the three-element field corrector in front of the convex secondary mirror. Although the telescope is designed for astrophotography, it can, of course, also be used excellently for visual observation. A special coating technique (state-of-the-art technology) provides the optimal mirror surface for observing and photographing deep-sky objects. It allows for controlled coating and individually corrects errors on the mirrors.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC 90/900 Refractor Telescope EQ3
The 90/900 refractor telescope is a classic achromatic refractor and can be used for either astronomy or nature observations (e.g. of wild animals). The long focal length (900 mm) makes the telescope a specialist for observing the Moon, planets and bright objects outside our solar system. Saturn's majestic rings and giant storms on Jupiter can be seen, as well as the brighter emission nebulae, galaxies and star clusters if you observe on a dark, moonless night away from city lights. The sturdy equatorial mount can be aligned to the Pole Star, Polaris, and makes tracking objects by hand child's play.Three eyepieces, a 20mm, 12.5mm and 4mm, giving 45x, 72x and 225x magnification respectively, are included and also a 3x Barlow lens and Moon filter as standard.  A red LED reflex finder, once aligned to the telescope's main optical axis, will help you find your way to a huge array of potential targets for observation in the night time sky.The EQ3 mount is provided with slow motion flexible cables to help you follow objects accurately and compensate for the effects of the Earth's rotation.  The mount can also be upgraded to a simple RA motor tracking kit with additional purchase.FEATURESOptical System: Achromatic RefractorLens diameter: 90mmFocal length: 900mmMagnification: 45x-675xMount: EQ3, equatorialTripod: Aluminium with accessory trayWHAT'S INCLUDED OTAMountAluminium tripodEyepieces 31.7mm (1.25"): H-20mm, H-12mm, SR-4mm3x Barlow LensMoon filterLED viewfinderStar map

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 68° Ar Eyepiece 16mm (1,25")
With the introduction of the 68° Series we are pleased to make two important improvements in eyepiece manufacture, the first being 15 layer Enhanced Multi-layer Deposition (EMD™) coatings on all glass-to-air surfaces to gain maximum contrast, and waterproofing the eyepiece with the use of Argon gas purging instead of standard Nitrogen gas. Although Nitrogen is a fine choice that will last for many years, Argon is a larger molecule that maintains its protective properties over a wider range of temperatures, and is even more resistant to diffusion thereby further extending the protective waterproof environment of the eyepiece body. Through computer-optimized design, a careful selection of optical glasses, and enhanced multi-layer deposition coatings, the Explore Scientific 68° Series™ eyepieces produce long eye-relief and ensure high image-correction, a flat field, and high contrast across the entire image field. An excellent choice for those who make extended visual studies of detail with subtle variations of brightness, and for those who must wear glasses while observing. All 68° Series eyepieces are fully EMD (Enhanced Multi-Layer Deposition) coated and edge-blackened to produce superior contrast.
