TS Newtonian 114/900mm EQ3-1 complete telescope for Beginners 8+
The Newton with 114mm aperture and 900mm focal length is certainly one of the classics among the beginners telescopes. Especially because of its popularity, there are considerable differences in the quality, the optics and the accessories.
This telescope offers the required quality, making the start into astronomy an all-round positive experience.
The EQ3-1 is a solid mount - the basis for successful observing. Many other telescopes in this price range are only offered on the EQ-1 or a similar mount that is undersized for a telescope of this size.
The mount offers professional functions such as:
- polar fine alignment for precise setup
- mount separable from tripod
- oversized field tripod
- manual slow motion control in both
axes through flexible shafts
- tracking motor available optionally (see "recommended accessories")
An often overlooked detail of particular importance. The focuser´s job is to hold the eyepiece ("magnifying lens") in place and move it into focus for a sharp image. The eyepiece defines the magnification you get. The Starscope 1149 has a standard 1.25" focuser, not the older 24.5 mm size. As a result you can choose from hundreds of optional accessories available for 1.25".
Craters, mountain ranges, ridges, valleys, volcanic plains. Observe the sunrise in a crater on the moon as more and more detail inside the crater becomes visible!
Observe the phases of Venus, the cloud belts of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, the Galilean moons, ... Even Uranus can be seen with this telescope!
With the optional Baader AstroSolar filter sheet you can safely observe the sun. Discover the sun spots - centers of magnetic activity. You can find the filter sheet under "recommended accessories".
The Stars and the Deep Sky
Hundreds of objects are within reach of this telescope. Observe double or multiple stars with their different colours.
