Product description

The Omegon 90/1000mm EQ-2 refractor provides you with a good starting point for being able to more closely observe the night sky. The rugged high quality optics and mount are well matched to each other.

Your interest in the night sky will turn into fascination!

The Omegon AC 90/1000 optics:

This refractor has an achromatic objective lens which combines 2 lenses in order to correct most colour defects. Irritating colour fringes are thereby largely eliminated and the telescope provides a clear, high-contrast image.

With a lens aperture of 90mm, this telescope provides you with a truly unbelievable amount of detail when observing planets. Whether Jupiter, Mars or Saturn - you can really see the details on these planets. It is an awe inspiring experience to see the rings of Saturn or the 'Great Red Spot' on Jupiter for the first time. Brighter deep sky objects can also be interesting targets for this telescope. You can spend many happy hours observing the famous Ring Nebula in Lyra, the Great Orion Nebula or glittering open star clusters. After all, this telescope collects 165 times more light than the naked eye (for a 7mm dark adapted pupil).

The 90/1000mm refractor is very versatile, also letting you to take your first steps in astrophotography. Simply attach your camera to the telescope with the optional adapter. The surface of the moon is a good choice for taking your first beautiful images for example.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • 90mm optics, meaning 25% more light gathering power than for 80mm
  • very good colour correction via the achromatic objective lens and 1000mm focal length
  • robust 1.25” focuser with T-2 thread
  • clear, high-contrast image
  • sturdy dew shield (114mm) to prevent misting up
  • piggy-back adapter fitted for attaching a camera
  • simple camera mount (DSLR)

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.

Customer reviews

Excellent price / performance ratio

Review by matu2982 on 16.05.2012 00:48:42

( 4 / 5 )

I bought a few months ago and I really do not regret, ideal for those who want to start to be introduced in astronomy. At an affordable price you can see the planets with great clarity and definition. Pros: great picture, moon and planets are sharp. Cons: EQ-2 mount vibrates too much and the barlow lens that comes bundled is nearly useless otherwise meets my expectations.
