BRESSER Messier 6" Planetary Dobson Telescope - now including a high-quality aperture Solar-filter for safe observation of sunspots, eclipses and planet transits. Great telescope for night-time and solar observation.

The BRESSER Messier 6 inch Planetary Dobson is something very special. Despite its low price, it offers a variety of functions and quality, which you sometimes look for in vain in considerably more expensive telescopes. With an aperture diameter of 150 mm and a focal length of 1200 mm the high quality BRESSER Newtonian optics, observations of the Moon, the planets and planetary nebulae are particularly impressive. Craters and rilles of the moon, as well as the ever-changing shadows cast by the terminator line between light and dark side of the lunar surface, are exciting targets to explore. Saturn with its impressive ring system, Jupiter with its bands of clouds and the movement of its easily-visible moons, the crescent phase of Venus and the glowing red Mars are good examples of what this telescope can be used to observe with ease. Because of the long basic focal length you can easily achieve high magnifications without especially short focal length eyepieces, making for a more comfortable viewing. You do not need expensive special eyepieces for this. In short, this is a telescope primarily for detailed high power visual observation. Nevertheless, brighter deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula, or the galaxies Messier 81 and 82 etc. can be easily observed as well.

Astrophotography is no problem with this tube. Here is another strength of this telescope: if you want to take pictures, you can simply unscrew the altitude wheels from the tube and mount the telescope to a Equatorial mount, with an optionally available dovetail rail. The included eyepiece adapter has the common T2 connection thread (M42x0.75mm), to which almost every standard camera can be attached. A camera-specific T2 adapter ring is the only other itme required as an additional purchase. Of course, regular USB planetary cameras with 1.25 inch or 2 inch diameters can also be used directly with this telescope. For lunar or planetary imaging, you would not even need a tracking mount to acheive this.

With the standard equipment you can observe with minimal set up time - an optical 6x30 viewfinder and a 25 mm SPL eyepiece are included. For those who want to transport the telescope taking up the least amount of volumetric space, the 6'' BRESSER Messier Planet Dobson makes carriage very easy - the rocker box can be disassembled in a few easy steps, due to the quick release metal furniture connectors. So a bulky rocker box can quickly turn into a handy flat package.

A telescope whose versatility, performance and user-friendliness set new standards in this price class.

Please note that Newtonian reflector telescopes are very good for astronomical observations of the night sky, but are not well-suited for observing nature and landscapes during the day. For nature and landscape observations we recommend BRESSER spotting scopes or refracting telescopes with a terrestial erecting adapter.
