For the ambitious planetary observer this telescope is a dream machine. View tiny dots and structures in the cloud bands of Jupiter, small rims and craters on the surface of the moon and details on Mars, including the ice-covered polar regions of our neighbouring planet. Watch Jupiter's moons dance around the planet and detect the greenish glow of Uranus far beyond Saturns orbit. The combination of large aperture and long focal length provides tack-sharp high-contrast pictures that will impress you every time anew.
The mounting Bresser EXOS-2:
The EXOS-2 is a robust mounting with high bearing capacity (up to 13 kg visual, 10 kg photographic) and precise setpoint tracing for visual watchings and for astro-photography.
Double radical rill-bearings make the function precise and the optimated RA-axes don´t let much play. Further, the very robust, precise worked mounting allows an easy entrance in astro-photography. A motorical 2-axes control can be added.
- robust mounting
- agreed counter weight
- robust 3-leg tripod made of steel
The GoTo system for the EXOS 2 from Bresser helps even beginners to observe celestial objects, which would be very difficult or impossible to find without GoTo, in just a few minutes. By simply pressing a button, the GoTo system slews the telescope to the planet, nebula or galaxy you have selected and tracks it fully automatically. The database contains over 100,000 objects. You can observe celestial objects with the Messier series GoTo telescope without long searches, or photograph faint objects that you would not even be able to find using classical location methods!
New - with immediate effect, this telescope comes with the new improved Hexafoc focuser. This focuser has a free aperture of 65mm! For photographic use in particular, it can be retrofitted with a 1:10 reduction ratio fine focuser (see 'Recommended Accessories'). This allows more precise focus adjustment.
It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.
