Die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto Montierung

von Jochen Fehmer


Mein neustes Testobjekt ist die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto Montierung. Nun ja, in der Astronomie- Szene ist sie nicht gerade als die Montierung schlechthin bekannt und die Meinungen gehen weit auseinander.

Also ab ins Lager und eine BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto auf die Sackkarre und ins Auto damit. Mir fiel auf, die Dimensionen des Kartons sind echt übersichtlich, kein langer schwerer wie ich es von anderen Montierungen gewohnt bin. Es sei gesagt, es war keine überprüfte oder eine ausgesuchte, es war eine von der Stange oder besser gesagt vom Regal.

Zuhause angekommen und gestärkt von einem Abendessen machte ich mich ans Werk.

BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO mit EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC AR102
BRESSER Montierung EXOS 2 GOTO

Ich packte die Montierung im warmen Wintergarten aus, denn draußen war es schon sehr kalt, minus 4 Grad. Als erstes das Stativ. Es ist aus Stahlrohr, leicht und mit zwei Feststellschrauben pro Fuß…das finde ich schon einmal gut. Trotz des leichten Gewichts scheint es sehr stabil zu sein. Dann kam der Montierungskopf; die Motorenabdeckungen sind aus Kunststoff. Egal, wenigstens sind die Zahnräder und die Kugellager einigermaßen vor Staub und Feuchtigkeit geschützt. Auch da fiel mir auf, dass die Montierung sehr leicht ist. Die Montierung auf das Stativ zu schrauben ist sehr einfach, eine große Drehstange erleichtert das ungemein. Gute Idee,wenn es draußen nicht gerade warm ist. Dann die Gewindestange an die Montierung geschraubt. Ein Gewicht ist im Lieferumfang enthalten, dass auf die Stange geschoben und fest gezogen. Handbox angeschlossen und das DEC. Kabel installiert. Fertig. Die BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO Montierung macht so einen guten Eindruck, alle Schrauben sind groß genug um auch mit Handschuhen bei niedrigen Temperaturen arbeiten zu können. Allein vom Aussehen gefällt sie mir sehr gut.

Aber, gut aussehen reicht nicht. Leider suchte ich vergeblich nach einer Polsucherbeleuchtung. Diese muss als Zubehör gekauft werden. Dafür bekommt sie keinen Applaus. Es geht zwar auch ohne, aber mit der genauen Einordnung fällt und steht die Beobachtungsnacht. Schade.

Ich habe das mitgelieferte Batteriefach mit Batterien gefüllt. Ich wollte so damit arbeiten wie sie ausgeliefert wird. Ein Netzteil kann man als Zubehör erwerben.

Auf geht’s, Montierung angestellt. Als erstes fiel mir das sehr große Display der Handbox auf. Sehr angenehm die Infos zu lesen. Keine Laufschrift sondern stehende Buchstaben. Die Umstellung auf unsere deutsche Sprache ist kein Problem. Nur dass die Schrift auf einmal viel größer wurde….warum dieses? Keine Ahnung, eventuell sind viele Deutsche kurzsichtig. Die Zeit und das Datum musste ich nicht mehr eingeben, bei Bresser werden die Montierungen mit dem Goto versehen, so dass alles schon eingegeben wurde. Auch hier ist zu beachten wenn es eingegeben werden muss, erst das Jahr, Monat und dann den Tag. Nun zum Standort: Vorgegeben sind etliche Länder und Städte. Da es aber keine Updates mehr gibt kann man eigentlich sofort damit beginnen seinen eigenen Wohnort einzugeben. Dafür einmal nach unten mit den Pfeiltasten.

Die Zahnräder hinter der Abdeckung

Längen,- und Breitengrad eingeben. ( Wenn man den nicht weiß einfach im Internet oder Handy gucken ), Zeitzone hier in Deutschland ist 01. Wenn alles eingegeben ist bestätigen und das ist erledigt. Jedes Mal wenn man nun die Montierung ein schaltet nur noch auf Benutzerstandort gehen und fertig. (interne Batterie). Ich hatte für die erste gemeinsame Nacht mir folgendes vorgenommen.

Doppelschiene und 200 mm Canon Objektiv mit einer Canon EOS 6 D und 8x50 Sucher mit einer ASI ZWO 120 Guiding mit PHD2. Normalerweise sollte man die Montierung in DEC. und RA. auf vorgegebenen Pfeile stellen, dieses wollte ich aber nicht. Ging ja auch nicht, da ich mit einer Doppelschiene arbeiten wollte. Also ausgerichtet und angeschaltet. Ich wollte eine 3 Sterne Ausrichtung machen. Machte ich dann auch, einfach der Sternvorschläge ohne Widerworte folgen. (Wie in einer guten Ehe, keine Widerworte) Drei Sterne durch und fertig. Ich habe keine Ahnung ob das richtig war, schließlich war ich noch im warmen Wintergarten.

Zum Schluss sollte sie auf Home Position fahren, das tat sie auch mit der Querstellung meiner Ausrüstung. Natürlich habe ich vorher das Gewicht der Kamera, Objektiv etc. genau ausgependelt. Das ist sehr wichtig, die Gewichtsverteilung sollte schon passen. Dann ging es raus in die Dunkelheit und in die Kälte.

Die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto Montierung grob nach Norden ausgerichtet. Nun die Montierung mittels Dosenlibelle auf dem Stativ in Waage gebracht. Dann den Deckel des Polsuchers abgezogen, den Schraubdeckel entfernt. Da keine Polsucherbeleuchtung dabei war habe ich eine Laptop Lampe genommen. Ist eine kleine LED Leuchte mit Klemme und flexiblen Arm…ist zwar kein Rotlicht, geht aber auch. Es geht auch mit der Hand box! In der Hand box vorne ist ein Rotlicht eingebaut mit verschiedenen Helligkeitsstufen. Ohne Probleme reicht die Länge des Kabels aus um in die Öffnung des Polsuchers zu leuchten. Hab ich ausprobiert, klappt. Bei der BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO ist in der Mitte ein Strich und dort ein Kreis. Da steht Polaris. Es gibt zahlreiche APPs für das Handy. Unter anderem auch die APP- Polarfinder. Diese benutze ich immer. Automatisch habe ich die Position von Polaris. Bitte positionieren Sie den Polarstern auf den Kreis, nicht in dem Kreis. Sie können sicher sein, es passt. Ohne viel Mühe ist das erledigt.

Dann habe ich die Kamera angeschlossen und den Laptop gestartet. Die Scharfstellung ist schon eine heikle Sache. Ich nehme immer den Polarstern. Bis jetzt hat es immer geklappt. Es wäre schade, wenn die ganzen Aufnahmen unscharf oder die Sterne Donuts gleichen, die Zeit sollte man sich nehmen. Zahlt sich später aus.

Foto von Jörg Ortmann aus Hamm-Pelkum , 5.12.2016 (M 45 mit der BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO, 24x300 Sek., ISO 400 , Canon EOS 1000 Da.)

Die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto Montierung sollte beim ersten einrichten nur zwei Sterne anfahren, erster Stern war fast in der Mitte des Kameradisplays. Okay, ich gebe zu es war ja das Canon 70-200 mm, F4 Objektiv. Da wäre es sehr traurig wenn ich den nicht gesehen hätte, oder? Beim zweiten Stern viel ich aus den Wolken, die Montierung schlug den Polarstern vor. Alles klar! Doch ich zentrierte unsern Nordstern und bestätigte die Auswahl der Montierung. Da war ich mal gespannt. Ich scrollte auf der Handbox auf den Menüpunkt Messier Objekte und tippte die Zahlen 4 und 5 ein. Die Plejaden sollten es werden, das erste Objekt welches jemals die Montierung angefahren hat…..ein Stück Geschichte. Auf ging’s, sehr langsam und ruhig fuhr die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto den Himmel ab. Das Motorengeräusch ist ruhig, es wird keinen Ärger mit Nachbarn geben. Und dann war meine Überraschung sehr groß, mittig strahlten die sieben Schwestern im Display der Canon 6D Kamera. Der Adler ist gelandet! Oha, das ist doch mal was, innerliche Freude machte sich breit. Doch wie wird es weitergehen? Also, M 31 die Andromeda Galaxie….ist ja nicht weit weg, 31 in dem Menüpunkt Messier Objekte eingetippt und bestätigt. Und siehe da, M 31 in der Mitte. Dann wurde ich übermütig, Deneb im Sternmenü eingegeben, Mittig. Vega eingegeben, wieder mittig. Warum fragte ich mich, denn innerlich hatte ich mich auf Frust eingestellt. Okay, sie wollte es wissen. Ab zu den Plejaden. Eine Minute Belichtung ohne Guiding. Ergebnis: Punktförmige Sterne. 120 Sekunden eingegeben und Belichtung gestartet.

Kurz in die Küche gegangen und einen Kaffee geholt. Da hatten die Sterne leichte Tropfen. Aber gut. Jetzt wollte ich mal loslegen mit der Fotografie. Ich benutzte ein 9x50 Sucher mit einer ZWO ASI 120. APT auf meinem Laptop unterstützt die Astrofotografie. Im Display von APT stellte ich M 45 nochmal richtig scharf, durch die Zoom Funktion eine tolle Sache.

Leider merkte ich die Himmelqualität lies langsam aber sicher nach. Feuchtigkeit machte sich breit und das Seeing wurde von spitze zu überhaupt nicht mehr spitze! Aber egal, es gab aber noch ein paar Einstellungen die ich machen sollte und zwar die Guiding Geschwindigkeit bei der BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto auf 0,500 ändern. Bei PHD habe ich die Kalibrierungsschritte auf 1000 reduziert. Das waren nur grobe Änderungen, ein Feintuning wird es erst bei den nächsten Tests geben. Nun habe ich die BRESSER EXOS 2 Goto mit meinem Laptop verbunden. Ich habe mir einen passenden Stern ausgesucht und die beiden Sachen sich einrichten lassen. Fertig. Die Ausschläge der Korrektur hielten sich in Grenzen. Also gut, dachte ich und wechselte in mein Belichtungsprogram. Ich stellte ISO 400 ein, 180 Sekunden Belichtungszeit und insgesamt sollten 30 Aufnahmen gemacht werden, also 2 Stunden. Ich startete die Aufnahmen. Ich war gespannt, denn man kann live die Korrekturen des Guiders sehen. 0,30 -0,85, in dem Bereich lagen die Zahlen. Das ist jetzt echt völlig in Ordnung, obwohl ich von anderen Montierungen ganz andere Zahlen gewohnt war.

M31

M31, die Andromeda Galaxie. Aufgenommen mit einer Canon EOS 6 D und der BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO Montierung. ISO 400/30x120 Sek.

Dann war das erste Foto fertig. Ich vergrößerte es auf dem Laptop, und man staune, die Sterne waren Punkte. Dann wurde es Zeit sich ein wenig aufzuwärmen und ich ging ins Haus. (Rentner Astrofotografie, bin halt über 50!) Nach knapp 2 Stunden ging ich raus in die dunkle, kalte Nacht um die Aufnahmen etc. zu kontrollieren. Alles noch in Ordnung. Die Schuhsohlenwärmer aus dem Baumarkt hielten das Objektiv und den Sucher Tau,- und Eisfrei. Ich entschied mich nun mit dem Sigma 120-400 mm mit F5,6 auf die Andromeda Galaxie zu schwenken. Objektiv gewechselt und dann M 31 eingegeben. Unsere Nachbargalaxie war mittig im Display der Kamera.

Anschlussbox

Die Anschlussbox der BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO Montierung. Von links nach rechts: ST4 für Auto-Guider zum Nachführen von länger belichteten Aufnahmen, Strom, An,-Ausschalter, Hand box und Stecker für DEC.-Achse.

Das Guiding musste ich neu starten, es wollte mit der alten Einstellung nicht mehr. Das dauerte aber nicht lang und die Belichtungen konnten beginnen. Die Tests mit „richtigen“ Teleskopen werden in den nächsten Wochen folgen. Auch diese Belichtungsreihe klappte auf Anhieb. Um drei Uhr rum war es dann auch gut. Die Batterien waren noch nicht am Ende, ich aber. Alles aus stellen, wegstellen und müde ins Bett fallen.

FAZIT DES ERSTEN TESTS MIT DER BRESSER EXOS 2 GOTO

Im Großen und Ganzen bin ich positiv überrascht. Sie hat Ihre erste Testnacht sehr gut überstanden. Sie hat das gemacht was sie sollte und wofür sie entwickelt, gebaut und verkauft wird. Alleine das Piepsen der Hand box nervt ein wenig. Kann man nicht abschalten, wenn es zu viel wird einfach Gewebeband draufkleben. Mit der Hand box muss ich mich noch ein wenig beschäftigen, wie eigentlich mit der ganzen Montierung. Als ein richtiger Test kann man es und sollte man es noch nicht sehen, 200 mm und 400 mm Objektive ist noch keine richtige Herausforderung. Aber, aufgrund ihres geringen Gewichts ist sie sehr mobil. Sollte sie wirklich das Zeug haben als Fotomontierung? Das werden wir in den nächsten Tests sehen. Alleine vom Preis her ist die BRESSER EXOS 2 Montierung schon einmal ein guter Kandidat. Sie liegt preislich zwischen Reisemontierung ( meistens ohne Goto-Funktion) und mittelschweren Montierungen, die für den mobilen Einsatz sehr schwer und unhandlich sind.

Testbericht zu BRESSER Full HD Deep-Sky Kamera & Guider 1.25

von Reinhard Pankrath: "Mond am Taghimmel für Astro - Fotografie geeignet?"

Gefreut hatte ich mich über längere Wolkenlücken und einen offensichtlich durchsichtigen, also klaren, Himmel. Wenn man am Tag den Mond so schön sehen kann, obwohl die Sonne noch scheint, kann der Himmel nicht trübe sein und ist folglich auch für die Verwendung eines Teleskopes gut!

Was mich dann doch geärgert hat, war die fürchterliche Luftbewegung des doch so erwünscht klaren Himmels! Aber jeder Test wird erst richtig gut und aussagekräftig, desto schwieriger er durchzuführen ist. So auch hier.

Meine Erwartung schien realistisch: Wenn der Himmel zwar klar ist, aber die Sonne noch scheint, habe ich weniger Kontrast. Und das brachte mich auf die Idee, eine bestimmte Zusammenstellung meiner Geräte zu testen. Um es vorweg zu sagen: Das Ergebnis hat meine Erwartungen weit übertroffen! Aber hier der Weg dorthin:

Equipment:

• Die Bresser Exos 2 Goto Montierung

• OMC 140 deluxe Teleskop (140 / 2000), ein Rumak

• Die HD – Kamera von Bresser mit dem der neuesten Entwicklung entsprechenden back illuminated Chip von Sony

Warum so?

Erstens: Die Exos 2 ist stabil und läuft gut, habe ich sowieso für meine Teleskope. Die Alternative wäre ein Fotostativ – also ist die Wahl klar :-)

Zweitens: Das OMC wurde von Harrie Rutten berechnet inklusive des überragenden Blendensystems, das für einen optimalen Kontrast sorgt. Das sollte bei Tageslicht doch besonders geeignet sein! Eine bessere Abstimmung kann ich bei anderen Teleskopen auch nicht erwarten.

Drittens: Die HD-Kamera von Bresser hat diesen modernen Chip. Rauscharm und besonders lichtempfindlich durch die derzeit modernste Technik. Kann man bei Sony nachlesen, warum diese Technik so ist. Sehr aufwändig und deshalb auch teurer als herkömmliche Cmos (außer bei Bresser, da hat mich der Preis gewundert, andere lassen es sich besser bezahlen). Aber eben effektiv. Und die Lichtempfindlichkeit der back illuminated Chips sorgt dafür, dass die Belichtungszeiten besonders kurz gehalten werden können. Gerade bei Luftunruhe wichtig, je kürzer belichtet, desto mehr „friert“ die Luftunruhe beim Einzelbild ein. Also siehe oben. Soll die Kamera mal zeigen, was sie kann.

Jetzt muss ich etwas gestehen: Beim ersten Probieren der Kamera habe ich mich über ein gegenüber anderen Programmen komplizierteres Einstellungsmenü geärgert. Da muss man tatsächlich die Bedienungsanleitung lesen! So was! - Nun, ich sage jetzt: Gut, dass es alle diese Parameter gibt. Ein bisschen lernen hat mir auch nicht geschadet und bei diesem Test hat es sich bewährt. Da kam das zugute, was man alles regeln kann.

Das Bild war trotz des Sonnenlichthimmels NICHT flau! Korrekturen am Histogramm – bitte feinfühlig, zuviel ruiniert das Bild dann doch – an der Zeit und Verstärkung, am Weißabgleich und so weiter... haben die Aufnahme des Videos mit 1000 Bildern verarbeitungswürdig gemacht. Gut, man muss vor der Aufnahme etwas Zeit investieren, um alles den Gegebenheiten anzupassen. Einer Automatik würde ich es aber sowieso nicht überlassen. Bei Aufnahmen möchte ich doch bitte noch selber eingreifen können, um das Optimum heraus zu holen. Bei dem erreichten Kontrast konnte ich dann auch die Schärfeleistung erkennen und entsprechend fokussieren. Und so entstanden dann die Videos, bis die Wolken wieder zu dicht wurden und ich abbauen musste.

Die Bearbeitung, stacken, nachbearbeiten mit verschiedenen Freewareprogrammen, in das Format des Ergebnisses für die Veröffentlichung umwandeln, erfolgte dann wie immer. Und hier das Ergebnis. Kann man erkennen, dass die Sonne geschienen hat, als die Aufnahme entstand?

Mein Fazit: Die Kamera ist sehr gut zu gebrauchen, auch wenn die Bedingungen schwierig sind, alle Achtung.

Ich freue mich, dass ich auch so den Mond fotografieren kann und nicht immer auf die Dunkelheit warten muss. Das erweitert das Zeitfenster für mein Hobby doch sehr. Und jetzt ärgere ich mich nie mehr über viele Parameter zur Einstellung der Aufnahme! :-)

Liebe Grüße und Clear Sky

BRESSER Messier NT203s/800 Optical Tube
NEW – now including a high-quality aperture Solar-filter for safe observation of sunspots, eclipses and planet transits. Great telescope for night and solar observation.In the past few years the Bresser Newton telescopes have become the standard workhorse for Deep Sky astrophotography. We now proudly present the second generation of this telescope, the Bresser NT-203s/800 with Hexafoc and a fast parabolic main mirror. The Bresser NT-203s/800 f3.9 will deliver you deeper images due to its - compared to 8" f/5 systems - oversized primary mirror and therefore faster optical system with the same exposure time. The big 85 mm secondary prevents vignetting for optimal illumination The excellent 2.5" Hexafoc focuser also does not cause vignetting due to its large diameter and makes focussing a joy - the smoothness and shifting-free operation sets new standards in this price class. This groundbreaking focuser, tube rings with 44mm universal standard dovetail and camera mounting feature and a high-end finderscope with haircross and laser-engraved scale  leave nothing to desire even for demanding astrophotographers. The NT-203s/800 Hexafoc has a classical tube construction with an aluminium tube. The focuser can be upgraded with a 10:1 reduction (part No. 0625720) without problems. Ready to use with the  HR Coma Corrector (part No. 0510330) which eliminates coma, field-curvature and astigmatism.Please note: Reflector telescopes with optical design Newton are very good for astronomical observing at the starry night sky. But these telescopes are not well usable for observing landscape and nature during daylight.

BRESSER Mobile Solar Charger 60 Watt with USB and DC output
Self-sufficient travel with the BRESSER solar charger Whether camping, sailing, trekking or swimming at the nearest lake – anyone who enjoys being outdoors for long periods of time does not want to do without their smartphone, tablet, powerbank, etc. But one question quickly arises: where can I find the nearest power socket? After all, every battery runs out and our practical everyday helpers can't manage without electricity. With the ultra-compact BRESSER solar charger, you simply use the power of the sun to charge your devices. The environmentally friendly solar energy is free of charge – and you remain independent of the power grid! Simply open it up, put it down and immediately produce green solar powerThe handling is very simple: unfold the solar panel and align it as perpendicularly as possible to the sun. Then connect the device to be charged to the solar charger, either with a suitable USB cable (not included) or with the included DC connection cable. The charging process begins immediately. Which devices can the solar panel charge? The solar charger gets all devices with a USB power supply connection or the above-mentioned DC power plug connection up and running again in no time – e.g. smartphones, tablets, power banks, portable playstations, MP4 players, GPS devices and Bluetooth headphones. It is also suitable for charging large power stations such as the BRESSER Power Station 100 Watt (art. no.3810000) and the BRESSER Power Station 500 Watt (art. no. 3810020) as well as power stations from other manufacturers with suitable connection values.Universal charger with flexible connection optionsTwo black USB A sockets for normal charging and another orange USB A socket with QC3.0 standard for fast charging of newer generations of devices are available for powering your devices. An additional universal connection cable with a hollow DC plug 5.5/2.1 mm in diameter and 2.5 metres long, as well as 10 plug adapters (7.9/5.5mm, 7.4/5.0mm, 6.5/4.3mm, 6.3/3.0mm, 5.5/2.5mm, 5.5/1.7mm, 5.5/3.2mm, 4.8/1.7mm, 4.0/1.7mm, 3.5/1.35mm) are included in the scope of delivery. The polarity of the connectors is as follows: Inner contact = positive (+), outer contact = negative (-). How long does it take to charge a battery?Most modern devices with built-in batteries indicate the current charging status of the battery on a display or status LEDs. The charging process is also automatically terminated by the internal charger of the smartphone or tablet, etc., as soon as the battery is full.Nevertheless, it is helpful to know how long a full charge theoretically takes with an empty battery. This is the only way to choose the right solar panel model for the requirements of the devices you want to charge.Here is a short calculation: Divide the capacity of the battery (mAh) by the charging current of the charger (mA) and multiply this by a factor of 75. This then gives you the approximate charging time in minutes that is required to fully charge the battery at 100% sunshine duration.Example 1: A battery with a capacity of 3000mAh (3.0 Ah) and a charging current via 5 volt USB connection of 3400mA (3.4 amps). So 3000 : 3400 x 75 = 66 minutes. Dividing the result by 60 gives the charging time in hours: 1.1 hours.This means that an average smartphone can be fully charged in just about 1.1 hours with a 60-watt solar panel.   Example 2: A large power station battery with a capacity of 13000mAh (13.0 Ah) and a charging current via 18 volts DC plug connection of 3300mA (3.3 amps). So 13000 : 3300 x 75 = 295 minutes. Dividing the result by 60 gives the charging time in hours: 4.9 hours.This means that an average smartphone can be fully charged in just about 5 hours with a 60-watt solar panel.   Carabiner hook for attachment includedIn order to attach the solar panel securely to an object and align it perfectly with the sun, 4 sturdy snap hooks are included in the scope of delivery. Simply connect them to the riveted ring eyelets of the solar panel and use them to hang the solar charger stably, e.g. on a tent loop, a fence or other suitable holding points. Innovative solar cell technology with high efficiency Monocrystalline silicium cells ensure high efficiency and the fastest possible charging of the device batteries. This means maximum electricity yield per solar surface. As a result, you benefit from relatively high charging currents and short charging times with a compact design.Easy transportThanks to the modern and flat design, you can easily fold the individual segments of the solar panel into a small bag and stow it in your luggage while saving space. Always ready for the next spontaneous use.Robust, dust- and water-repellent materials The durable Cordura fabric is extremely tear-resistant but still flexible. It protects the valuable solar panel from damage and provides the necessary stability during use. The solar panel is dust- and water-repellent, it withstands most weather conditions and is your ideal companion for almost all outdoor activities. Nevertheless, the solar panel should not be exposed to direct rain or extreme humidity.IMPORTANT NOTESThe solar panel does not have an integrated charger or charge controller. Therefore, it is not suitable for directly charging loose battery cells or lead batteries. It is only suitable for smartphones, tablets and power banks, for example, because they always have built-in internal chargers.The solar panel does not have its own battery, but serves exclusively as a power source in sunshine for charging electronic devices.When connecting the devices to be charged via the DC bar plug, always ensure the required voltage and correct polarity. Otherwise, damage may occur to the electronics of the solar panel and the devices to be charged.Do not leave the solar panel outdoors at night with high humidity or in the rain. This could damage the internal electronics.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 82° Ar Eyepiece 11mm (1,25")
Explore Scientific 82° Series™ extreme wide field eyepieces are optimized to produce high contrast, high resolution, and superior flat field characteristics. The visual effect of these eyepieces with their long eye-relief and their 82° apparent field is truly a full-immersion experience. Your eye is relaxed, allowing you to easily use the "averted vision" technique to study faint details across a huge field-of-view. The 82° Series eyepieces come with a twist-up rubber eye-guard that raise to the desired height for the comfort of the observer, and as experienced astronomers know, eye comfort is critical when trying to observe at the visual limits of the telescope. To keep internal reflections to a minimum, all internal surfaces of the eyepiece barrel are flat black, as well as the edges of the lenses themselves to minimize the scattering of light within the lenses themselves. All 82° Series eyepieces are fully multi-coated and edge-blackened to produce maximum contrast.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 2" CLS Nebula Filter
Besides air turbulence, the brightening of the night sky is the biggest obstacle to observing faint objects beyond the solar system. Street lamps and other artificial lighting mean that the sky in human settlements is no longer really black. This affects the contrast and thus the perception of deep-sky objects. Depending on the type of celestial object, however, part of disturbing artificial light can be filtered out, making it easier to observe fainter targets.The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC CITY LIGHT SUPRESSION - or CLS - filter uses the fact that the artificial lighting is not evenly distributed over the entire spectrum. These colours - in the case of the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC CLS nebula filter, above all the typical colours of mercury and high-pressure lamps, used in street lighting - are suppressed, but the emissions of deep-sky objects are allowed through. With a slightly brightened sky, some relatively bright deep-sky objects are practically invisible with a telescope, for example the large galaxy M101. Using this filter makes observation much easier. A must have for any visual amateur astronomer.  The CLS can also be used as a useful photographic filter - helping to improve the quality of your telescopic deep sky photos.The EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC nebula filters are delivered with an individual test report - so you can be sure of receiving high-quality filters.SPECIFICATIONS:eliminates disturbing light - e.g. from street lightingenables observation of faint deep sky objectsWHAT'S INCLUDED:1x nebula filter

Explore Scientific ReflexSight LED Finder
A new take on a classic design, superior to the usual red dot finder - which will fit many telescopes and larger binoculars.Explore Scientific ReflexSight™ LED projection viewfinder, uses proven functionality with versatility, while having enhanced performance features.Looking through this viewfinder shows multiple deep red target circles projected against the night sky.  Both eyes can be used for quick and easy star hopping, in order to target objects in your telescope. The big advantage is that you can see the entire night sky without magnification and not just a small section of the sky, as you would through a magnified finderscope.  This makes Goto aligning quick and easy and speeds up acquisition of targets.New "Multi-Dot" target circle pattern (in standard circle diameters of 4.0 degrees, 2.0 degrees and 0.5 degrees), prevents blocking of stars within the field of view.  Using the widths of the projected circles as reference points allows those users with non-goto telescopes to easily work out the location of non-visible targets, with reference to more easily visible stars.  The projection screen size is a generous 55 x 35 mm.Multiple mounting options. The Explore Scientific ReflexSight™ LED projection viewfinder's base fits standard "Vixen-style dovetail" finder bases, allowing the user to attach this finder to a wife array of commercially-available telescopes, without modifying the telescope itself. A ¼ inch x 20G threaded adapter (photo tripod thread) is built into the finder base, allowing the finder to be attached to a variety of telescopes, via piggyback camera adapters with a photo tripod threaded hole.Functional design and intuitive use: the smooth housing, with no sharp corners, prevents snagging. Easily accessible battery compartment, taking 2x standard AAA alkaline batteries (not included), which power the frugal LED illuminator. The low power consumption of the LED lighting ensures a long operating time. Large, continuously adjustable brightness control with knurled knob head can be easily operated with gloves. Click the rotary switch to turn off completely. Rear-facing, tool-free three-point parallax knurled collimation knobs, again, easy to operate even with gloved hands, ensure you are well locked-on to the main optical axis of your telescope. The projection screen is coated, to minimise annoying reflections and allow you to concentrate on the finder's target and the night sky behind it.  Comes complete with screen and optics cover. The extremely compact design allows mounting even on small, lightweight telescopes - truly a finder for all!FEATURESReflexSight LED projection finder with deep red target circles Standard circle diameters 4.0 degrees, 2.0 degrees and 0.5 degreesProjection screen size: 55 x 35 mmFits standard Vixen-style dovetail finder shoes There is also a ¼ inch x 20G female photo tripod thread in the base Can be mounted via piggyback camera adapters etc. Operates on standard AAA batteries (not included) Smooth housing with no sharp corners, prevents snagging Comes complete with optics and screen cover Compact design and easily accessible battery compartment Large, continuously adjustable brightness control with knurled knob Click switch to turn off completely Tool-free three-point collimation parallax adjustment with easily accessible knurled knobs Can also be mounted on small and light telescopes WHAT'S INCLUDEDReflexSight LED projection finder

BRESSER has relied on innovation coupled with quality Made in Italy for this top-notch product. The manufacturer's long experience in mount construction guarantees a high-end device with first-class functionality and utmost reliability. Additionally, the in-house development team in Italy ensures quick response times in technical support and the adaptation of new device drivers. Truly, "Professionals at work!" The mount is controlled via pre-installed web-app software, accessible via WIFI and Ethernet cable connection. The philosophy behind the Nebula GoTo system is to provide the user with a control system independent of a standard PC, which can be remotely controlled via a smart device such as a mobile phone or tablet. However, this does not exclude the traditional use of computers of all types and brands, which can be connected to the system either wired or wirelessly. The BRESSER Nebula GoTo System Controller is a Raspberry Pi 4 microcomputer, which allows complete control of the setup (mount, camera, etc...) without the need for any other external device. The BRESSER Nebula GoTo system comes equipped with all Linux-based applications required for performing all astrophotographic functions.The existing INDI environment allows for the control of almost all devices (cameras, filter wheels, rotators, etc., including observatory domes) needed for local or remote astrophotography sessions. The system also offers high flexibility for users who prefer to use traditional computer client applications such as Cart du Ciel (Star Chart), TheSkyX, SkySafari, Stellarium, and other planetarium programs as well as SGP, Nina, CCD Ciel, and other astrophotography tools. This complete compatibility is ensured through the adoption of the Alpaca communication protocol, which allows for the use of traditional ASCOM platform drivers for native INDI devices.State-of-the-art mount construction The BRESSER Nebula mounts are CNC-manufactured from stainless steel and aluminium. The sleek and functional design is courtesy of a renowned Italian mount manufacturer, who has licensed the design and now manufactures these fine BRESSER products 100%. So, look forward to a stable yet easily portable mount, which despite its light weight of only 13 kg (incl. tripod), allows for a high load capacity of up to 20 kg.Visual Observation For visual observation and direct use, control the mount with the hand control box included in the package. Alternatively, connect the Nebula 5 via WLAN directly to your smartphone or tablet and use the virtual hand control box. Of course, all adjustment parameters can also be set via the web application. The user interface is deliberately simple and clear to ensure intuitive operation.Astrophotography Here, the Nebula mount shows its full strength. Whether mobile or stationary, the capability for remote operation is crucial. Connect your laptop or PC either via WLAN or with an Ethernet cable (recommended for faster data transmission) directly to the Raspberry-Pi control unit of the mount. Then use the pre-installed Kstars/EKOS software to control the mount and all external devices such as cameras, motor focus, filter wheel, etc. Alternatively, you can also directly control the unit with your own software. Applications such as Cart du Ciel (Star Chart), TheSkyX, SkySafari, Stellarium, and other planetarium programs as well as SGP, Nina, CCD Ciel, and other astrophotography tools can be used without any issues.2-in-1 Mount with EQ and AZ Mode If required, the Nebula can be switched from the equatorial mode to the azimuthal mode. This is particularly advantageous for observing nature or tracking satellites. Thus, the mount can be used for various applications and is not limited to astronomy.Attachment of up to two optics Would you like to adapt multiple optics? No problem. Simply use the option to replace the counterweight bar with another telescope. Use the second optic as a counterweight to the main telescope. Set the Nebula 5 to azimuthal mode, remove the counterweight bar, and screw a suitable second telescope clamp directly onto the mount.
