NEW: Now includes a high-quality lens solar filter for safe viewing of sunspots, eclipses, and planetary transits. A high quality telescope for night and solar observation.
Great for getting started in astronomy - the 90mm aperture offers over 200 times more light than the naked eye!
See craters, valleys and grooves on the moon almost 400,000 km away as if you were really close! The BRESSER MESSIER AR-90s with EXOS I mount offers you detailed images, but not only of the moon: Take a close look at the division of Saturn's rings from millions of kilometers away or discover the "Great Red Spot" of Jupiter , a massive hurricane in its atmosphere. Follow the seasons on Mars and detect the crescent of Venus.
But the AR-90s also does a very good job as a compact travel device. Due to the shorter focal length of just 500mm, impressive wide-field observations of open star clusters and the Milky Way can be made.
The MESSIER AR-90s already collects a multiple of light compared to the device with which Galileo Galilei made his famous discoveries almost four hundred years ago.
The permanently installed dew protection cap reduces any dew formation that may occur and prevents side stray light from entering, also increasing image contrast.
There is a GP dovetail bar on the ring of the AR-90s/500 tube to attach it to the mount.
