February 6 2020, Jan Ströher

The Lumicon name stands for high quality astronomical filters, both for visual observing and astrophotography.

This special offer means we can now offer you a selection of different filters from this American manufacturer at a 20% discount.

The following filters are now available at a special price:

Neutral Density (ND) filters – ideal for lunar observing:

IR blocking filters for increasing sharpness when photographing the Moon and planets:

Blue filters

Blue filters above all make the details of the atmospheres of Jupiter and Saturn more visible, as well as those of the surface of Mars.

Dark blue is excellent for detecting cloud bands and the Great Red Spot (GRS) on Jupiter.

Red filters

Red filters increase contrast with the Moon and reveal the polar caps on Mars. Dark red filters should only be used on larger telescopes.

Light red gives a strong increase in contrast with the Moon, as well as allowing easier observing of Mercury and Venus at dusk.

Violet filters

Violet filters are used for observing Venus (cloud structures) and increase contrast with Saturn’s rings.

Green filters

Green filters enhance the contrast of surface details on the Moon, as well as details in the cloud structures of Jupiter (GRS) and Saturn (bands).

Light green also allows better observing of the ice caps on Mars.

Yellow filters:

Yellow filters suppress colour fringing with achromatic refractors and can be used as universal contrast filters for various objects in our solar system.

Yellow-green filters allow atmospheric details on Jupiter and Saturn to be detected more easily, even in smaller telescopes.

Yellow-orange filters increase contrast when observing Mars.

The NexStar 130 SLT telescope from Celestron now on special offer!

January 13 2020, Stefan Taube

NexStar SLT telescopes from Celestron are easy-to-use integrated systems that, with their computer controls, reveal the highlights of the night. So even beginners can easily find their way around the night sky.

We are currently offering the NexStar 130 SLT model at a special price: right now it’s yours for just EUR 499. You save EUR 130 compared to the manufacturer’s recommended retail price!

Celestron NexStar 130 SLT

Celestron NexStar 130 SLT

The NexStar 130 SLT is the largest model in this series. With an aperture of 130 millimetres, it collects the most light and offers the highest resolution. Not only are the Moon and planets accessible to you, but also the other “stars” in the night sky, such as the Orion Nebula, the Andromeda Galaxy or the Hercules cluster. But don’t neglect double stars like Albireo in the Swan! The sight of such pairs of stars is especially appealing when the two elements display a beautiful colour contrast.

The basis of the NexStar SLT telescopes is a single-arm azimuth mount with motorised tracking. This design ensures a low weight and quick set-up. The motors can be powered either using the integrated battery or with an optional mains adapter.

The NexStar computer control shows you the entire starry sky. The necessary alignment of the control is very simple with Celestron telescopes. To start your observing you simply need to point at any three stars and the computer already knows where all the other stars and planets are located.

Take advantage of the special offer on the NexStar 130 SLT now! It is only valid until 29.2.2020!

Special offer: Vixen binocular telescope BT-81S-A complete package!

October 9 2019, Stefan Taube

Binoculars are often underrated as instruments for astronomy. Yet the view of the night sky through large-aperture binoculars is a unique experience!

Binocular viewing supports our natural stereoscopic vision. It allows especially relaxed observing and offers a 3D effect that can only be achieved with a telescope by using a binocular viewer accessory.

Vixen BT 81S

Vixen BT-81S-A binocular telescope set

Compared to telescopes, binoculars have a larger field of view at lower levels of magnification. Therefore they are especially suited to observing star fields, open star clusters, dark nebulae and comets.

For many years Vixen, the Japanese manufacturer, has been offering an interesting range of astronomical binoculars with their BT series. Right now we are offering you the BT-81S-A as a complete package for a special price: you get the binoculars including a tripod, mount and eyepiece now for just EUR 1,699. You save EUR 200 compared to the manufacturer’s recommended price!

The BT-81S-A has two achromatic lenses with magnesium fluoride coatings. The colour-corrected fast lenses, with a focal ratio of f/6, combined with the special fork mount, allow an expansive visual stroll across the night sky which is truly addictive!

With an 81mm aperture, the BT-81S-A is among the smaller large-aperture binoculars. But in return it is easily portable, weighing 4 kilograms and being 480 millimetres long.

You can find more information and ordering options here in the Astroshop.

Value for money set: Celestron CPC 800 telescope with StarSense AutoAlign

April 27 2018, Stefan Taube

We are currently offering you a valuable set, comprising a CPC 800 telescope and the StarSense AutoAlign module. You save €345.00 compared to buying all the items individually!

Celestron CPC 800 mit StarSense

The telescopes in the CPC series are modern classics! The American developer, Celestron, offers Schmidt Cassegrain optics with this series in a very sturdy azimuthal bracket mount. This compact system is great for when you’re on the move. If you want to drive to a dark sky, you can load this robust CPC into any small car and set it up quickly and easily at your observation site. The NexStar computer control will help you to adjust to interesting celestial objects at night. There are hardly any other telescope systems that will allow you to use your precious observation time so effectively as the CPC by Celestron.

Before you can use the NexStar control, you must first of all initiate your computer. This means you must tell the computer where the telescope is, enter the date and time, and orient it to the starry sky. The CPC telescopes shorten this procedure, too: The built-in GPS tells the NexStar control the location, date and time, and thanks to the SkyAlign technology, you don’t have to already know the stars for initialisation. It’s enough to adjust to three bright celestial objects of your choice in the telescope.

But it gets even easier: With the StarSense AutoAlign module, this last procedure isn’t necessary. Switch on the telescope and just wait for a short while. The telescope will initialise fully within three minutes and be available for you to start your observation session.

The StarSense AutoAlign module is suitable for GoTo telescopes by Celestron. There is also a special version for Skywatcher mounts.

You can now get the CPC 800 with StarSense AutoAlign at a great price!

Celestron CPC Teleskope

The telescopes in the CPC series come with an 8 to 11-inch aperture (200 to 279 mm). With your compact SC optics, these are real all-rounders, and are especially suitable for observing and photographing the moon and planets.
