Product description:

N 150/750 telescope: This versatile Newtonian reflecting telescope provides both beginners and more experienced amateur astronomers plenty of light and high stability for a very modest price. It collects so much light with its generous 150mm diameter that distant DSOs such as the Ring Nebula in Lyra or the Dumbbell Nebula become beautifully visible and globular clusters, such as M13, resolve into a multitude of individual stars at their edges. Planetary observing provides rich detail in images of Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mars. The f5 focal ratio means this reflector falls into the class of 'fast' Newtonian telescopes. This telescope is therefore particularly suitable for astrophotography. The light gathering capacity of the 150 is 460 times greater than that of the naked eye alone (with a 7mm fully dilated pupil).

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • relatively high light gathering power thanks to 150mm aperture
  • resistant to vibration and wind due to compact design
  • diffraction limited parabolic primary mirror
  • high-contrast image due to thin secondary mirror spider vanes
  • portable and quickly assembled
  • exposure times for astrophotography can due to the short focal length

The optics with tube and the necessary accessories are all included, making it easy to attach it onto a mount.

  • Tube ring clamps complete with prism rail
  • 6x30 finder scope
  • light, at only about 5kg in weight
  • tube dimensions: diameter 182mm, length 680mm
  • astrophotography: a T-2 thread for your camera is already built-in
  • piggyback camera mount on the tube ring clamps
  • 2" Crayford focuser for a fine focusing

Jupiter with its large moons. Taken with a Skywatcher 150/750 NEQ-3 telescope. You can see that the telescope has even imaged the shadow of one of Jupiter's moons (c) Andreas Koch

The famous M13 globular cluster. Even the edge regions can be resolved into individual stars with this telescope. This globular cluster is about 25,000 light years away and has a diameter of 150 light years (c) Andreas Koch with 150/750 NEQ-3 telescope

The Dumbbell Nebula (M27) is a planetary nebula. The dumbbell shape can be visually observed very well with the Skywatcher 150/750 NEQ-3 telescope (c) Andreas Koch

Area of the winter night sky with open cluster region and planetary nebula NGC2438. Taken with a Skywatcher 150/750 NEQ-3 telescope with 2-axis control (c) Andreas Koch

The great Orion Nebula (M42) in the constellation of Orion, an active star-forming region. The nebula appears bluish in a telescope. (c) Andreas Koch
