- The set for the ambitious entry -
The set is just right for those who want to start ambitiously into the new hobby of astronomy. It impresses with simple construction and versatile use.
Dobson are often the ideal telescopes for newcomers: easy to set up, intuitive to operate and very good value for money in terms of large opening and high stability.
The Dobson of Skywatcher has a large 150mm aperture and 1200mm focal length and a parabolic main mirror, creating ideal conditions for detailed lunar and planetary observation. An aperture ratio of f/8 ensures very high-contrast and sharp images. Thus, the atmosphere bands (cloud bands) of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and the phase shape of Venus are wonderful to watch.
The focal length over 1200mm gives the device the property to achieve a relatively high magnification for the moon and planets with the usual eyepieces. Together with the bright and high-contrast image, here are beautiful details.
Deep-sky objects, such as the Orion Nebula and the Andromeda Galaxy, are beautiful viewing objects. At 150mm opening I already have a decent light gathering power. Therefore, galaxies and nebulae are visible in the high-contrast image. Star clusters show their beauty and clearly stand out against the darker background.
The telescope sits on a so-called Rockerbox, which forms a stable, wobble-free substructure.
The desired sky objects can be targeted by pushing on the tube.
The tripod plate runs on plain bearings and the telescope can be rotated by the side handles in the desired direction (azimuth). At the same time you can use it to control the movement in the angular orientation (height) and thereby also clamp it.
At the Rockbox there is a storage facility for eyepieces.
A light and stable operation, which is also suitable for children!
The Newton telescope is about the 6 '' Dobson Skywatcher SkyLiner 150P, with 150mm aperture and 1200mm focal length. It brings its tripod, in the form of a "rocker box", already with.

Zoom Eyepiece 8 - 24mm:
No annoying eyepiece change necessary, because the Seben Zoom eyepiece unites several different eyepiece sizes to one. By fine rotation on the eyepiece you can view the object in the viewfinder (24mm) and can then zoom easily (up to 8mm).

Barlow lens 2x:
With the achromatic Barlow lens, you can look at planets closer. This Barlow allows a 2-fold magnification.

It is often underestimated how bright the moon is in a telescope. The lunar filter not only protects your eyes, it also ensures more contrasts and allows a detailed moon observation.
