The Omegon 90/1000 mm EQ2 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 90 mm, 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 7 mm dark adapted pupil).
The 90/1000 mm 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:
The mounting EQ2:
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.
