Omegon Advanced Dobson telescope - for a silkily smooth ride into the universe
Treat your eyes to a new look at the universe. The Omegon Dobsonian telescope gives you clear views of planets, nebulae and galaxies. Even at high magnifications, you can move the rockerbox mount around quickly and easily to point at any target in the night sky!
The advantages in a nutshell
- 254mm aperture - deep sky objects, including spiral galaxies, are no problem for this telescope.
- high quality parabolic mirror producing a sharp image
- new friction system for balancing heavy eyepieces
The optics -high contrast and sharp photos thanks to the parabolic mirror
Good optics are the heart of every telescope - the parabolic mirror here provides an image that is sharp right out to its edge. All this for a viewing experience during which you may well forget that you are still on the Earth and only 'travelling' with your eyes.
The mount - even heavy accessories are no problem for this mount.
The 143mm polyamide altitude bearings and Teflon pads for azimuth mean moving your telescope in any direction can be done at the push of a finger - being able to track your object easily is of paramount importance. This is particularly important when using high magnifications, where objects will quickly move out of the field view.
New friction system - even for heavy accessories
There is a problem with many Dobsonian telescopes when heavy eyepieces are used. The instrument becomes 'top heavy' and this cannot easily be compensated for. The newly developed friction system means that using heavy eyepieces is no longer a problem. A handy central screw is used to balance the telescope and accessories in seconds.
