SXD2WL SD115SII Complete Telescope Set with GoTo Mount, Tripod and Eyepieces

This high-quality apochromatic refractor telescope-set impresses with its 115-mm-SD optics. The telescope is made in Japan and scores with its excellent workmanship, sharpness, and contrast performance. The advantage of this SD refractor lies in its light weight and very color-true and high-contrast imaging. You will be amazed when you use it to observe the moon surface with its craters or Saturn with its ring system. On Jupiter, on a good night, you can also see the two bright cloud bands and many smaller details as well as the great red spot on the planet. On moonless nights, you can observe the Andromeda Nebula, Orion Nebula, Eagle Nebula, Lagoon Nebula and many other interesting objects. Even weaker celestial objects become visible with this large aperture of 115 mm under a good sky.

This telescope set "Made in Japan" leaves nothing to be desired. The FPL53 glass used in the telescope reproduces an extremely clear and sharp image due to exceptionally high elimination of residual color errors. The SD glass is designed to bring all rays – violet, red, blue, yellow, and green – very precisely to the same level. The special lens material thus reduces chromatic aberration across all colors. In the new Vixen SD115SII, no spacer plates are used anymore, which leads to a significantly better image quality especially with bright stars. Consequently, no spikes are seen on the stars in photographic images, which would otherwise be caused by the spacer plates.

In combination with the optional SD Reducer HD Kit or SD Flattener HD (not included), this refractor telescope enables illumination with a 44-mm image circle for full-frame SLR cameras. The older ED81SII, ED103S, ED115S refractors were originally developed for visual observers and photographers with APS-C cameras. However, the new SD series is also optimized for use with full-frame cameras due to the use of new internal diaphragms. The large 60-mm eyepiece holder also allows the attachment of heavy cameras without tilting. Furthermore, the supplied flip mirror allows comfortable observing even in unfavorable viewing conditions and also provides a T2 thread for attaching a DSLR camera. So you can observe at an 90° angle or directly. The carry handle attached to the tube clamps provides safe handling during transport of the telescope. The sturdy metal tripod allows vibration-free mounting of the telescope and mount even in windy conditions.

The SXD2WL mount is simply operated via a Wifi module with a smartphone or tablet . For user-friendly control of the mount, the free app STAR BOOK Wireless is available. This allows you to use practical celestial navigation functions like the automatic GoTo swiveling to specific celestial objects simply via your smartphone or tablet. Since the power consumption of the traditional LCD screen (STAR BOOK TEN) is eliminated, the power consumption of the mount is reduced by up to 20%. This enables astronomical observations and astrophotography over longer periods.

When you tap the desired celestial object from a list, it is automatically swiveled into the telescope's field of view and tracking begins. An existing STAR BOOK TEN control 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 sets a new standard for performance and precision in the Vixen mount family.

The axis cross of the mount is with a photographic carrying capacity of 15 kg just 9.2 kg light and thus excellent for mobile observations . Moreover, the motors located in the lower part of the mount also act as counterweights. This reduces the need for additional counterweights.

The SXD2 Mount in Detail

Precision stepper motors and Micro-Step-Motion-Control system
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 boasts powerful yet very quiet drive properties, which are present both in fine movements and in fast swivels.

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 quieter than in previous models.

High-precision worm gears
High-precision processing technologies eliminate errors in the worm gears. The edges of both worms and worm wheels are particularly smooth, enabling very precise tracking.

Declination axis as counterweight
The massive motor units are built into the lower part of the declination axis, so the center of gravity of the SXD2 is below the intersection of the RA and DEC axes. This means you need fewer additional counterweights.

Latitude adjustment
The latitude can be adjusted 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 steps; fine adjustment with a tangent screw head, approx. 0.8 degrees per rotation.

Built-in PFL-II polar finder with illumination
The built-in 5x20-mm polar finder with a 10° field of view features a 3-star alignment system. This eliminates the tedious setting of date and time. The illuminated reticle with variable brightness and automatic shutoff is adjustable in 8 levels and is red illuminated. The adjustment accuracy is 3 arc minutes.

The Wireless Module in Detail

The Vixen WiFi Adapter for EQ mounts enables you to control your Vixen mount via a smartphone or tablet. This allows you to navigate the skies wirelessly using the STAR BOOK Wireless app (free), instantly transforming your mobile device into a controller for the equatorial mount. The response delay of the mount, a major drawback of wireless connections, has been reduced to a level comparable with wired solutions.

Reduced power consumption compared to conventional controls with LCD monitors
The power consumption of the mount is reduced by up to 20%, thus allowing for longer observation periods than with conventional wired controls such as the STAR BOOK TEN.

Operation similar to the STAR BOOK TEN controller
The STAR BOOK Wireless App is structured similarly to the STAR BOOK TEN controller you might already be familiar with. Depending on the star chart settings, it includes up to 259,000 celestial objects. Simply tap on a celestial object in the object list to start the GoTo. The mount then automatically moves to this target and positions it within the telescope’s field of view. All the popular features of the STAR BOOK TEN are retained.

Convenient operation
While looking through the telescope, you control the mount by swiping on the app’s star map. With no buttons required, you simply glide your finger over the star map, allowing for easy operation of the mount.

Comprehensive astronomical data included
This includes data on easily observable celestial bodies such as Messier objects, NGC objects, IC objects, as well as the sun, moon, planets, comets, and dwarf planets.

High-precision alignment
Aligning with one or two stars already provides a fairly accurate positioning of the mount. Aligning with three or more stars allows for high-precision alignment of the mount for high magnifications. The objects are then precisely centered in your telescope’s field of view. The alignment information is stored and can be retained even when the device is turned off. By leaving the telescope in its current state after observing, without moving it, you can start the next observation with the automatic setup using the same settings.

Individual setting options
Like the STAR BOOK TEN controller, the app offers various individual settings such as backlash compensation, red night mode, autoguider, as well as variable GoTo speed and LED brightness. You can also set the timing of the objective tube reversal (Meridian Flip) as desired. Even if the object moves south during tracking, you can prevent the telescope tube from reversing.

Important Information
Not usable on old SX mounts with the old blue Star Book

Technical Information on the Wifi Module
CPU with a 32-bit CISC processor at 120 MHz
The unit connects to the mount with a D-SUB 9PIN connector, as with the STAR BOOK TEN.
It features a 6-pin 6-wire modular plug for external autoguider operation.

Vixen SG-L02 Headlamp red-light white-light
The perfect LED head torch for nighttime observations! Adjusting your eyes to the dark surroundings is very important when making astronomical observations. In dark areas, it is very difficult to use astronomical equipment without a suitable light. With normal lights, however, the light intensity is more important than protecting your eyes against bright light. Using these lights at night makes your pupils contract, which can make it difficult for your eyes to readjust to the darkness. The SG-L01, our first astronomy LED lamp, featured a built-in red LED that provided a solution to this problem. However, the red light did not offer optimal visibility. On our new astronomy LED light, the SG-L02, the LED lights produce warm light to improve visibility. They also ensure that your eyes stay adapted to the dark. The LEDs do not emit light in the sensitive range of 555 nm. The brightness of the white light can be adjusted between 3 and 42 lumen, while the red light can be adjusted between 0.28 and 7.62 lumen. FEATURES Dimmable red light ensures that your eyes stay adapted to the dark Built-in rechargeable battery, charges via USB Waterproof design LED colour can be switched from red to white 0.28 to 7.62 lumen for red light 3 to 42 lumen for white light Dimensions: 41 mm x 33 mm x 30 mm Weight: 29 g DELIVERY CONTENT SG-L02 head torch Strap (size S) Strap (size L) Pocket clip Cable for charging the battery (USB-A plug to USB Micro-B plug)

BRESSER Venus 76/700 AZ Reflector Telescope with Smartphone Adapter & Solar Filter
The BRESSER Venus 76/700 AZ reflecting telescope allows beginners to experience their very own stargazing hours quickly and easily. With the complete set, you are equipped with everything you need for your very own sky observations: an astronomical reflecting telescope with 76 mm aperture and 700 mm focal length, an azimuthal mount, a tripod as well as extensive accessories. And to guarantee a successful start in astronomy, the system is very easy to handle – the perfect first telescope for beginners! Established technology for your easy start – the telescope With this entry-level telescope, you will be able to admire the night sky through a classic Newtonian reflector. A little surprising for astronomy novices: with this particular type, you do not look in at the back of the telescope, but at the front and laterally. The advantage: even if the telescope aperture is directed vertically towards the sky, you can make your discoveries very comfortably. No need to bend down! In addition, the Newtonian reflector is very easy to use. The optics in this type of reflector telescopes are also impressive, because they are free of chromatic aberrations – resulting in good imaging properties at all times. A sharp image with good contrast – the Venus reflector telescope achieves this with its large focal ratio of about 1 to 9.2 (F/9.2 – calculated from 76 mm aperture and 700 mm focal length). Thanks to its long focal length, the telescope for beginners shows you the Moon, Sun, planets, open star clusters as well as globular clusters in a particularly impressive way. And all this at a magnification of up to 150x in really sharp images! Technically, you can magnify even higher – theoretically up to 525x while using the included accessories. However, as the magnification increases, the sharpness of the image may slowly decrease. Of course, how much you can magnify depends not only on the resolving power of your telescope. The air turbulence in the atmosphere (seeing conditions) also plays an important role. Note for nature lovers: If you choose a Newtonian telescope like the Venus reflector telescope, you can look forward to a specialist in astronomical observation. However, the image is always displayed laterally reversed as well as upside down, which makes no difference when observing the sky. However, this type of telescope is less suitable for nature and landscape observation during the day. Would you like to use your new telescope for exciting nature discoveries as well? Then we recommend that you choose one of the BRESSER refractor telescopes. A good foundation for a successful start – mount and tripod The height-adjustable aluminium tripod and the azimuthal mount provide a firm footing and easy celestial navigation. Especially the azimuthal mount makes life easy for beginners, because it is very user-friendly: just like a typical photo tripod, you turn the telescope by hand to the left and right, up and down. This way, your favourite celestial objects quickly appear in your field of vision. Handy: to ensure that your astronomy accessories are always within reach, there is a storage plate between the tripod legs. Everything that goes with it – the accessories Out of the box straight to the fun of observing – with the complete astronomy set, you are quickly on your way to discovering the universe. The LED viewfinder helps you keep an eye on the sky. You just mount the direction finder parallel to the actual telescope and it projects a red dot onto a small ground-glass screen. This then appears to be hovering in front of the sky when you look through the viewfinder. And it does so at exactly the same spot that your telescope is pointed at. This way, the LED finder helps you to align the reflector telescope precisely and to find the celestial objects more easily. When it comes to the level of detail in your observations, the Venus beginner's reflector telescope gives you a choice: the two included eyepieces (4 mm and 20 mm) allow you two different magnifications. You want to get an even closer look? Then simply triple the magnification of the eyepieces with the 3x Barlow lens. In addition, the socket diameter of 31.7 mm (1.25 inch) complies with an international and manufacturer-independent standard. So you can easily expand your set – and with it your astronomical horizon. If you want to observe fascinating sights not only at night but also during the day, simply grab the solar filter. With it, you can safely admire spots and granulation on our nearest star – the Sun. CAUTION: Never point the telescope at the Sun without the solar filter! A new hobby leads to new impressions – and naturally you want to capture and share those. Therefore, you can easily use your mobile phone for your first steps into astrophotograpy with the smartphone adapter. Perfect for great snapshots of the Moon or the Sun, for example. Look forward to exciting astronomical discoveries by day and night – with the BRESSER Venus 76/700 AZ reflector telescope.

With its resolving power determined by the aperture size, the telescope easily delivers really sharp images up to about 120x magnification. Technically, even more is possible using this beginner’s telescope – theoretically up to 525x with the included accessories. However, as the magnification increases, the image usually becomes more and more blurred. In addition, the telescope is not the only factor determining the possible magnification. The air turbulence in the atmosphere is always an important criterion as well (seeing conditions). Your foundation for moving observations – mount and tripod Once you have found the right location for your astronomical adventures, attach your telescope to the height-adjustable aluminium tripod with azimuthal mount. The easy handling of this azimuthal mount allows you to move effortlessly from one astronomical sight to the next. Simply swing the starter telescope manually to the left and right, up and down – just like a normal photo tripod. In order to keep eyepieces, solar filters etc. within reach at all times, just place your accessories on the practical storage plate between the tripod legs. Everything for your astro quickstart – the accessories In order to enable you to see as much as possible, the beginner’s telescope comes with an extensive range of accessories. With the LED viewfinder, for example, you can keep track of the sky. It’s a direction finder that you mount parallel to the actual telescope. It projects a red dot onto a small ground-glass screen. When you look through it, the red dot appears to be floating in front of the sky, exactly where the optics of your telescope are pointing. This makes it easier to find celestial objects and to align the telescope accurately – just before you look more closely with the higher magnification. And how high that is, you determine by choosing the appropriate eyepiece. Two are already included in the set: 4 mm and 20 mm. Moreover, you can triple the magnification of the eyepieces with the 3x Barlow-lens. If at some point you want to extend your field of view with additional eyepieces, this poses no problem at all. The socket diameter of 1.25 inch (31.7 mm) corresponds to an international and manufacturer-independent standard. This offers you a wide choice of optional eyepieces you can use with your telescope. For you to direct your gaze comfortably to star clusters and planets, the 90-degree diagonal mirror allows you to easily look into the starter telescope. This way you don't have to lie down under the entry-level telescope when the optics are pointing at the sky. Instead, you just look in from the side. However, not only the night holds numerous interesting sights for us. During the day, especially our nearest star is worth a look. So take the solar-filter and direct your gaze safely at sunspots and granulation on the Sun. WARNING: Never point the telescope at the Sun without the solar filter! If you want to capture and share your discoveries, just take photos of the Moon, Sun and more using the included smartphone adapter.
