BRESSER Astro & Marine SF 7x50 WP binoculars
The ASTRO & MARINE binoculars from BRESSER are ideal for astronomy and maritime use, e.g. sailing and water sports enthusiasts. Robust and weatherproof per IPX6 levelThanks to their ergonomic rubber armouring, these binoculars fit securely in the hand and are also well protected against shocks and bumps. The binoculars are waterproof and filled with nitrogen. This effectively prevents fogging of the lenses, even in unfavourable weather conditions. Lightweight with tripod connection threadThe robust, yet very light construction is made possible by the most modern magnesium housing construction. Magnesium is around 35% lighter than aluminium. Due to the moderate 7x magnification and the low weight, these 7x50s are also very well suited for hands-free use. Nevertheless, there is a tripod connection thread on the centre axis. This means that the ASTRO & MARINE model can also be mounted securely on a photo tripod using the tripod adapter (Art.4914925) which is included as part of the package. Although this is not absolutely necessary with a magnification of 7x, it is highly recommended, especially for long-time astronomical observations, in order to obtain an absolutely steady image. Eyepieces for comfortable viewingThe precise single eyepiece focusing (SF) makes it possible to focus the binoculars once and then clearly observe all resolvable objects in the night sky, or on the horizon. In addition, this design prevents accidental change of focus. Foldable rubber eyecups and eyepieces with a comfortable eye relief distance (WP) of 20mm also allow those who have to wear glasses to observe, to use the entire field of view. High quality opticsThanks to fully multi-coated Bak4 optics, large 50mm objective lens diameter and the well-corrected eyepieces with 3 lenses in 2 groups, these excellent binoculars produce sharp and brilliant images.

With the dioptric compensation of +/- 3, you can also compensate for a difference in the visual acuity of the two eyes. Weatherproof body When out in nature, you should always be prepared for wind and weather. That's why the G400 binoculars are equipped with a waterproof body that won't let liquid penetrate. And when temperatures fluctuate, the nitrogen filling ensures that the lenses do not fog up from the inside. Get your all-rounder for stargazing, wildlife observation and more - with the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC G400 10x50 binoculars.

BRESSER Spezial Astro SF 15x70 Binoculars
SPEZIAL ASTRO SF 15x70 binoculars from BRESSER are ideal for astronomy and landscape observation. Thanks to fully multi coated Bak-4 glass material, the extra large objective 70mm lens diameter and highly corrected eyepieces with 5 lenses in 3 groups, these binoculars provide bright, crisp images from edge to edge of their field of view. The high 15x magnification is convenient not only for observing astronomical objects but is also practical for viewing distant terrestrial objects. Due to a very high reduction of stray light, the binoculars deliver the best possible picture and excellent clarity. With the individual eyepiece focus set you can get a sharp image for all astronomical distances, with no "focus creep" to spoil the view . Foldable rubber eyecups give eye glass wearers the possibility of making the best use of these binoculars wide field of view. Large diameter ocular eyepiece lenses provide extremely comfortable viewing, making longer observations possible without eye fatigue.The binoculars are waterproof and ARGON gas filled to avoid internal fogging.

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC BT-120 SF Giant Binocular with 62° LER Eyepieces 20mm
Giant binocular for observing the starry sky, nature and landscape. Observe the beauty of the starry sky at night and distant objects in nature during the day. Globular star clusters, glowing gas nebulae, the moon with its craters and even planets can be observed wonderfully on a clear night. But also all other distant things in nature and landscape, even ships and airplanes can be seen in detail. With the all-round binoculars of the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC BT series, you can get up very close. Thanks to the large, light-gathering lenses and the professional coatings on all lens surfaces, these binoculars produce bright and brilliant images even at night and at twilight, providing a special viewing pleasure. The comfortable 45 degree viewing angle allows fatigue-free use, even when the binoculars are tilted upwards towards the zenith.  A large binocular can also be called a double refractor telescope Binoculars such as these can really be described as a double telescope.  In this configuration, the full light gathering power of one single telescope is available to each eye. Experience a whole new dimension of observing as a consequence. Objects are reproduced almost vividly in these binoculars and observing with both eyes is a very relaxing experience. Last but not least, this comfortable way of observation increases the recognition of the finest details (particularly in fainter deep sky targets) and effectively prevents eye fatigue. Extremely robust binoculars with magnesium housing, sealed and filled with nitrogen  The BT series binoculars are designed for tough outdoor use. The IPX6 sealed and nitrogen-filled design effectively prevents fogging of the internal optics even under difficult weather conditions. The very light magnesium housing saves weight and makes it easy to handle. Two EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 20mm eyepieces of the 62 degree LER series already included. EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC is an established manufacturer of extremely high-quality eyepieces in the astronomy scene. An optical system is only as good as its weakest component. Therefore we have decided to deliver these giant binoculars with a pair of quality eyepieces of the 62 degree LER series. With an apparent field of view of 62 degrees and a focal length of 20mm, the BT-120 binoculars produce a 33x magnification. Thus these wide angle eyepieces offer a very good overview (field of view 1.8 degrees) at moderate magnification. The large interpupillary distance of these LER (long eye relief) eyepieces of 15mm and soft silicone eyecups, which can be turned inside out, also guarantee a comfortable and relaxed view. For astronomy, a flat and sharp image field is advantageous and offers a particularly impressive viewing experience even during the day. Due to the waterproof design and the argon filling, these eyepieces are absolutely durable and easy to clean. Interchangeable eyepieces with 1.25 inch / 31.7mm plug-in diameter Adjust the magnification and field of view to your individual needs and choose from a wide range of available eyepieces. All eyepiece types with a plug-in diameter of 1.25 inch / 31.7mm can be used with the binoculars of the BT series. Especially recommended are EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC eyepieces of the 62 and 82 degree series with focal lengths from 8 to 26mm (see item No. 02188xx and 02196xx). The magnification can be varied from 25x to 75x (focal length binoculars : focal length eyepiece = magnification). The eyepieces are held in the binoculars by a precise brass compression ring clamp and guarantee a tilt free position.  Use of colour and nebula filters for astronomical observations Increase the contrast and visibility of objects and details by screwing the corresponding filters directly into the thread of the eyepiece sleeves. The use of colour and nebula filters must of course always be done in pairs. Suitable are all EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC screw filters with 1.25inch / 31.7mm diameter (see item No. 03102xx)  Comfortable 45 degree view and helical single focus The 45-degree viewing angle allows a relaxed observation position even when the binoculars are tilted strongly. Also the individual interpupillary distance can be adjusted in a range from 54 to 76mm. With the fine helical individual focusing, precise focusing is achieved effortlessly. Extendable dew caps The integrated dew caps can be removed in high humidity and cold conditions. This avoids fogging of the outer objective lenses and effectively shields additional control light coming in from the side. Integrated carrying handle A metal carrying handle located at the center of gravity facilitates transport and ensures a secure hold during tripod assembly. Suitable tripods and tripod connectionWhen using these large binoculars, a sturdy photo tripod with an appropriate load capacity is highly recommended. The connection is made via two 1/4 inch or one 3/8 inch threaded holes (standard photo tripod thread) in the tripod adapter of the binoculars. The ideal solution is to use the optional available EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC U-Mount with field tripod (item No. 0114300). This is specially designed for the large binoculars of the BT series and carries these binoculars absolutely securely. The excellent support mechanism, with adjustable friction in both axes allows easy moving and tracking. The binocular position is kept stable depending on the adjusted friction intensity. Vibrations are reduced to a minimum by the massive construction of the U-Mount and the large stainless steel tripod. Even at high magnification there are no discernable vibrations and this allows the finest details to be observed in a chosen target.FEATURES Large binoculars for observing the starry sky, nature and landscape Observe globular star clusters, glowing gas nebulae, the moon with its craters and even planets Also wild animals, ships and airplanes can be seen in detail Highly light gathering lenses produce a bright and high-contrast image All-round binoculars, but especially suitable in twilight and at night The comfortable 45 degree viewing angle allows fatigue-free use One complete lens telescope with the full light gathering power is available per eye Extremely robust binoculars with magnesium housing, sealed and filled with nitrogen Two EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 20mm eyepieces of the 62 degree LER series already included 33x magnification and an apparent field of view of 62 degrees, true visible field of 1,8 degreesLarge interpupillary distance of 15mm to the eyepiece lens for comfortable viewing Eyepieces interchangeable and with standardized plug-in diameter of 1.25 inch / 31.7mm The magnification can be adjusted with optional eyepieces from 25x to 75x Precise brass eyepiece compression ring clamps for tilt-free fitColor and nebula filters can be used for astronomical observations Extendable dew caps prevent fogging of the outer objective lenses and stray light Integrated carrying handle facilitates transport and mounting on the tripod Tripod connection via two 1/4 inch or one 3/8 inch threaded holes (standard photo tripod thread) Tripod recommendation: EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC U-mount with field tripod (Art.No. 0114300) Objective type: Air spaced achromatic lens (2 elements/ 1 group) Coating: full multilayer coating on all optical surfaces Aperture, focal length and aperture ratio: 120mm / 660mm / F=5.5 Sealed to IPX6 standard and nitrogen filled: yes / yes Close focus distance: 35 meters Eyepiece mount diameter: 1.25'' / 31.7mm Adjustable interpupillary distance: 54 to 76 mm Helical single focus: yes BAK-4 prism system for a bright and high-contrast imageDimensions and weight of binocular: 654 x 290 x 156mm, 8.3kg Housing colour of binocular:  white What's included Giant binocular with carrying handle (without tripod)Eyepieces ES 20mm 62 degrees LER Series (2pcs)Precisely fitting foam insert for transport Dust covers for objectives and eyepiece sockets Instruction manual

Vixen SXD2WL Equatorial GoTo Mount with Wifi
Vixen has developed a new generation of SX mounts for demanding observers and astrophotographers. The SXD2WL mount is simply operated via a Wifi module with a smartphone or tablet. By controlling the mount with your smartphone using the free STAR BOOK Wireless app, you can easily use sky navigation functions such as automatic GoTo panning of celestial objects via your smartphone or tablet. By eliminating the power consumption of the conventional LCD (STAR BOOK TEN), the power consumption on the mount is reduced by up to 20%, thus enabling longer astronomical observation and astrophotography. When the desired celestial object is selected from a list, it is automatically panned into the telescope's field of view and tracking begins. An existing STAR BOOK TEN controller can also be used on this mount without any problems. Equipped with the same precision stepper motors as the top model, the AXD mount, the SXD2WL brings a new standard of performance and precision to the Vixen mount family. With a photographic load capacity of 15 kg, the axis cross of the mount weighs just 9.2 kg making it ideal for mobile observations. In addition, the motors mounted in the lower part of the mount also serve as a counterweight, so the mount requires fewer weights for balancing. The SXD2 mount in detail Precision stepper motors and micro-step motion control system At the heart of the SXD2 are the precision stepper motors, which offer better performance and response than previous models. The micro-step motion control system offers powerful and yet very smooth drive characteristics, which are given both in fine movements and in fast pans. Built-in bearings The bearings of the RA and DEC axes and the worm shafts have been significantly improved to reduce the load on the motors. As a result, the motors move much more smoothly than in previous models. High-precision worm gears High-precision processing technologies eliminate worm gear errors. The edges of the two worms and worm wheels are particularly smooth, enabling very precise tracking. Declination axis as counterweight The solid motor units are installed in the lower part of the declination axis so that the center of gravity of the SXD2 is below the intersection point of the RA and DEC axes. This means you need fewer additional counterweights. Latitude setting The latitude is adjustable between 0 and 70 degrees (divided into 3 zones and adjustable +/- 15 degrees per zone, for high, medium and low latitudes); latitude scale in 2-degree increments; fine adjustment with a tangent screw head, approx. 0.8 degrees per turn. Built-in PFL-II polar finder with illumination The built-in 5x20mm polar finder with 10° field of view has a 3-star alignment system. This eliminates the inconvenience of setting the date and original time. The illuminated reticle with variable brightness and automatic switch-off is adjustable in 8 levels and illuminated in red. The adjustment accuracy is 3 arc minutes. The wireless module in detail The Vixen Wifi adapter for EQ mounts allows you to control your Vixen mount via a smartphone or tablet. With the smartphone app STAR BOOK Wireless (free of charge) you can navigate the sky without any cables. The app turns your smartphone or tablet into a control unit for the equatorial mount in no time at all. The response delay of the mount, which is considered the biggest disadvantage of wireless connections, has been reduced to a level comparable to wired connections. Reduced power consumption compared to conventional controllers with LCD monitor The power consumption of the mount is reduced by up to 20%, allowing longer observations than with conventional wired controllers such as the STAR BOOK TEN. Operation similar to the STAR BOOK TEN controller. The STAR BOOK Wireless app has a similar structure to the STAR BOOK TEN controller. Depending on the star map setting, it contains up to 259,000 celestial objects. Tap on a celestial object in the object list and start the GoTo. The mount will now automatically move to this target and bring it into the telescope's field of view. All the popular features of the STAR BOOK TEN are retained Convenient operation When looking through the telescope operate the mount by swiping on the app's star chart. As there are no buttons, simply slide your finger over the star chart to operate the mount conveniently. Extensive astronomical data included In addition to data on easily observable celestial bodies such as Messier objects, NGC objects and IC objects, this also includes the sun, moon, planets, comets and dwarf planets. High-precision alignment By aligning the mount to one or two stars, you can already achieve fairly precise positioning. By aligning the mount to three or more stars, you can achieve high-precision alignment of the mount for high magnifications. The objects are then approached precisely and centrally in your telescope's field of view. The alignment information is saved and can be retained even when the device is switched off. By leaving the telescope in its current state after completing an observation without moving it, you can start the automatic installation with the same settings for the next observation.  Individual setting options As with the STAR BOOK TEN control unit, the app offers various individual settings, such as gear backlash compensation, night mode in red, autoguider and variable GoTo speed and LED brightness. You can also set the timing of the reversal of the objective tube (meridian flip) as desired. Even if the object moves to the south during tracking, you can prevent the telescope tube from reversing. Important note: Cannot be used on old SX mounts with the old blue Star Book! Technical information about the Wifi module: CPU with 32-bit CISC processor 120 MHz The unit is connected to the mount via a D-SUB 9PIN connector as with the STAR BOOK TEN. It has a 6-pin 6-wire modular plug for external autoguider operation.
