The "fast" aperture ratio of 1:5 makes it a fast telescope, which can already show a lot of detail in the observed objects. The light-gathering power of the human eye is here exceeded by a factor of about 600. Globular clusters like M13 or M92 are resolved down to the center. Many galaxies can be observed. Gas nebulae like the Omega or Orion Nebula already show filaments and become magnificent objects in the summer and winter sky with this telescope.
The planets also reveal something of your true nature. For example, you can see the cloud bands on Jupiter and track the Great Red Spot moving across the planet. Shadows cast by Jupiter's large moons are already visible at an aperture of 150mm.
You can even start with astrophotography and, for example, take the first photos of the moon. However, this telescope is not suitable for photography with a single lens reflex camera, as focus cannot be achieved due to the length of the focuser. Beginners can, for example, try their first webcam recordings.
If you are looking for a telescope that is already powerful but is very compact, this size of telescope is the one for you.
The advantages at a glance:
high resolving power due to 150mm aperture
1.25" focuser with large focus area
easy search for objects
Adjustment screws for secondary and primary mirror
compact at only 66 cm long
Tube outer diameter 185mm
Everything is already included in the scope of supply:
25mm Plössl eyepiece for 30x magnification
6.5mm Plössl eyepiece for 115x magnification
Red dot finder for easy location of celestial objects
2 Barlow lenses to double the magnification of the eyepiece
The EQ-3 mount: This equatorial mount already offers the possibility to align the optics exactly with Polaris. The correct geographic latitude or polar height can be set for each observing location. With fine movements on the right ascension and declination axis, objects can be sensitively adjusted, tracked and held in the field of view. A counterweight ensures that the optics are precisely balanced.
The EQ-3 mount provides a solid foundation for most small to medium sized optics and is well suited for beautiful walks in the night sky. The tripod is extendable, a shelf offers space for eyepieces and other accessories.
It not only depends on which telescope you buy, but also where. Our additional services:
With each telescope we deliver an issue of the exciting "Stars and Space" astronomy magazines.
We are a leading retailer of telescopes and we know the equipment well. Therefore, our service is also available to you after purchase if you have problems with the structure or function.
We enclose the 80-page Teleskop-ABC beginner's manual with each telescope.
Our expert comment:
With the Omegon 150/750 EQ-3, nothing stands in the way of a successful entry into astronomy. If you can invest even more in processing quality and equipment, we recommend that you take a look at the new Omegon 150/750 EQ-4 telescope. This device has the same tube, but is equipped with the more stable EQ-4 mount. This version also has a polar finder to find the celestial pole.
Should it be higher quality? Or would you like a similarly sized telescope that can later be expanded to include computer control? The Skywatcher N 150/750 Explorer BD NEQ-3 Telescope offers great features that are in a class of its own.
The flagship among entry-level Newtonian telescopes and a true behemoth of light is the Skywatcher N 200/1000 BlackDiamond NEQ-5 telescope, which comes highly recommended to all those interested in the deep sky.
What else distinguishes the telescope?
Unlike many comparably cheap reflector telescopes with a compact design, this model does not have a built-in Barlow lens. Such a lens would extremely reduce the quality of the image.
Therefore, the Omegon 150/750mm telescope is also suitable for high-contrast planet observations. Also, adjusting this telescope is easy even for a beginner.
Would you like to have your Omegon 150/750 EQ-3 telescope controlled by a motor?
