Bresser Spica 130 | 1000 EQ3 Reflector Telescope

Bresser Spica 130 | 1000 EQ3 Reflector Telescope FREE STANDARD DELIVERY ON THIS ITEM* - Please note this item is sent direct from suppliers via courier -
The Bresser Spica 130/1000 EQ3 reflector with smartphone adapter and solar filter is a fully featured 130mm (5 inch) class Newtonian telescope on the stable EQ3 German Equatorial Mount. The telescope is a hybrid Catadioptric Newtonian design, with a built in optical corrector, which boosts the equivalent focal length of this short tubed telescope to 1000mm - making it a small scope that packs a punch. Usable magnification (under ideal conditions), will top out at around 250x magnification on brighter objects, such as the Moon and major planets, but we would generally recommend keeping it in the 150-180x top limit, under average skies. The telescope takes standard 1.25 inch eyepieces and accessories and is supplied with a 4mm and 20mm focal length eyepiece, giving 250x and 50x magnification respectively. The telescope is also supplied with a 2x Barlow lens, which can be used in conjunction with the 20mm eyepiece to take it up to 150x magnification (this Barlow is not recommended for practical use with the 4mm eyepiece). The Barlow can also be combined with a 1.25 inch T-adapter to attach a DSLR or USB camera and take high power pictures and film of the Moon, Sun (using the filter) and the major planets. However, the Spica is also supplied with the Bresser Smartphone adapter, which fits around the telescopes eyepiece and allows you to attach a Smartphone in order to take pictures and movies of brighter targets, so you can ease your way into the world of astrophotography, using just your phone. A red dot LED reflex finder is also supplied, that once aligned to the telescopes optical axis, allows for accurate and easy pointing of the system. The telescope is supplied on the sturdy EQ3 mount, a German Equatorial design, which makes tracking objects a simple process. Just use the manual slow motion cables to turn the RA axis to keep up with a targets apparent motion through the sky and counteract the effect of the Earths rotation. A simple electric drive system is also available as an upgrade for the mount, for added convenience. The aluminium tripod is braced with a handy accessory tray to keep eyepieces and accessories safety stowed when out observing.
