The Bresser Messier 6'' Planetary Dobsonian is not only a great Astronomical telescope for the night sky it also includes a high-quality aperture Solar-filter for safe observation of sunspots, eclipses and planet transits. Easy to use, fast to setup with rewarding views thanks to the quality 6" aperture primary mirror. This product normally ships in 2-3 business daysThis instrument is extremely versatile and great quality 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 particualrly 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, Jupiter with its bands of clouds and the movement of its easily visible moons, the crescent shape 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 the high magnifications required for this purpose with this telescope. You do not need expensive special eyepieces for this. In short, this is a telescope primarily for detailed high power visual observation. Nevertheless, bright deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula or the galaxies Messier 81 and 82 etc. can be observed as well.With the standard equipment you can observe with minimal set up time - an optical 6x30 viewfinder and a 25 mm SPL eyepiece are included.
