Product description

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.

A large mirror paired with a long focal length make it possible to observe a wide variety of objects in the night sky. Due to the catadioptric system (integrated Barlow lens), the tube length is kept short despite the high focal length and thus the device is still very portable.

The EQ-3 mount: This parallactic mount allows you to accurately aligning the optics to the Pole Star. The correct polar height and geographical latitude can be set for any observation location. The slow motion controls for the RA and DEC axes allow objects to be adjusted precisely, tracked and held in the field of view. A counterweight provides exact counterbalancing of the optics.
The EQ-3 mount provides a solid base for most small to medium size optics and is excellent for fascinating excursions through the night sky. Drive motors are available for automatically guiding the EQ-3 mount, which also allows any first attempts at astrophotography. The tripod is extendable, an accessory tray provides a place for eyepieces and other accessories.

It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.

Our expert comment:

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

Customer reviews

Good for planetary observation only

Review by M. D. on 26.01.2014 12:34:41

( 2 / 5 )

The telescope holds a 150mm f/5 spherical mirror and it causes horrendous aberration when taking long exposures. Even through the eyepiece, the aberration is visible and does not make it a good telescope for general observation purposes. You may be able to fix it when stopping down the aperture to a smaller size, but you may be better of with a smaller aperture telescope with an f-ratio higher than 5. Say, a 114mm-900mm Newtonian.

However, this telescope is a cheap option when trying to capture planets with a small CCD sensor. If you can't afford a Cassegrain, this Jones-Bird may work just fine for beginners.
