TeleVue Mars Madness: Eyepieces at a Special Price!

June 27 2018, Stefan Taube

The planet Mars rises just before midnight and becomes the brightest object in the night sky.  Looking through a telescope, Mars will reveal itself as it nears Earth with increasingly more detail.

The series of photos below were captured between January and the end of April 2018.  They show the impressive growing diameter of Mars’ planetary disk.

Mars-Annäherung

The planet’s closest distance to Earth will take place at the end of July, during which time the disk will appear twice as large, as in the previous series of photos!  A glance at our outer neighbor in the solar system, however, will be well worth it throughout all of the Summer months!  A requirement in a successful Mars observation is a good eyepiece with a short focal length, which allows for a high magnification.

With the theme, Mars Madness, the American eyepiece specialist TeleVue is dropping its prices on its short focal length eyepieces by over 10% during the Mars Summer Event!  – an ideal time to expand your own eyepiece collection!  The price-drop applies to the following models:

Plössl Series

DeLite

TeleVue-Delos-4mm

The 4,5mm Eyepiece from TeleVue’s Delos Series

Delos

Nagler

Ethos

Last but not least, the Nagler Zoom Eyepiece 3 – 6 millimeter.

The sale is only valid until the 31st of July 2018!  Get your hands on an eyepiece now!

Additionally, the sales price guarantee: should an eyepiece not be deliverable in the short term, you can have it delivered later it at the sales price – based on the date of order.

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.
