N 150/1200 telescope:
A very good telescope for beginners and a must for experienced amateur astronomers! This Newtonian reflecting telescope collects so much light with its generous 150mm diameter that distant DSOs such as the Ring Nebula in Lyra or the Dumbbell Nebula become beautifully visible and globular clusters, such as M13, resolve into a multitude of individual stars at their edges. Planetary observing provides rich detail in images of Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mars. The f8 focal ratio helps make this reflector a real all-rounder suitable for both deep sky and planetary observing. The light gathering capacity of the150 is 460 times greater than with the naked eye alone.
The advantages in a nutshell:
- compact, portable OTA
- good value for money
The NEQ-3 Pro GoTo mount:
This mount is a further development of the EQ-3 Pro in a white design. It provides a solid platform for most medium-sized telescopes and is excellent for exploring the night sky. The polar elevation at the observing site can be set using the fine scale provided and adjusted perfectly by using two screws. A polar finder can be retrofitted. Fully equipped with motors in both axes and a SynScan hand control box to give you a complete GoTo mount: the NEQ-3 is suitable not only for visual observing, but also for getting started in astrophotography. With a little practice, you will soon be able to produce successful images of galaxies and nebulae.
Included with the mount:
- NEQ-3 Pro GoTo mount
- SynScan hand control box
- suitable counterweights
- aluminium tripod
- additional brace with eyepiece rack
