The large mirror with a tall focal length allows the observation of many celestial bodies. Thanks to the catadioptic system (integrated barlow lens) the length of the tube is despite to its tall focal length kept short, that´s why it is well transportable.
But also the mechanic is powerful. The equatorial mount allows every user to target the telescope. All Newton Telescopes have a drawtube on the side of their tube. It offers comfort while observing celestial bodies. Explore the planets within our solar system and discover new worlds.
The mounting EQ-2:
This parallytic mounting bares already the opportunity to arrange optics exactely to the polestar. For each watching-place, the right pole-height/geographic amplitude can be set. The objects can be set and tracked with fine movements in the right ascension- and declination-axe.
The aluminium three leg-tripod is extendable in a height from 71 cm up to 121 cm.
Also for children.
Note: The usual EQ-2 motors are not compatible with this Bresser mount and cannot be used. This mount is not identical to the standard EQ-2 mount.
It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.
We provide extra help:
- We are a leading telescope dealer and know these instruments like the back of our hands.
- We are always very happy to offer our assistance after your purchase, should you encounter any problems with your telescope’s setup or operation.
- Our ‘Telescope Basics’ booklet - an 80-page beginner's guide for our telescopes – is provided free of charge with every telescope we sell.
Compare: A similar telescope, which is very good value for money, is the Omegon N150/750 EQ-3. You also benefit from a comprehensive accessory kit for getting you started in astronomy.
The 150/1400 EQ-2 Pollux telescope has a long focal length of 1400mm, but a short actual length. This is achieved using a built-in corrector lens that artificially increases the focal length. But this design means that the image quality of the system suffers and is not of such high quality as that of the classical Newtonian telescopes offered by Bresser or Omegon for example. This is particularly noticeable at higher magnifications and when planetary observing. This means that classic Newtonian telescopes are far better value for money than this instrument.
A classical Newtonian telescope, but without the image degrading corrector lens, is the Omegon N150/750 EQ-3
Note: Skywatcher EQ-2 motors do not fit this telescope.
