Product description

The Omegon 150/750 EQ-4 Newtonian reflector is an ideal telescope for first getting started in astronomy. It has high stability and is ideal as the basis for your first astronomical photos.

The optics of the 150/750:

A 'fast' aperture ratio of 1:5 makes this a telescope with a lot of light gathering power, which can already show a lot of detail in objects observed. The light gathering ability of the human eye is exceeded here by a factor of around 600. Globular clusters, such as M13 or M92, can be resolved right down to their centres. Many galaxies can be observed. Gaseous nebulae, such as the Omega or Orion nebula, show filaments and become magnificent summer and winter sky objects with this telescope.

Also, the planets reveal some of their secrets. For example, you can observe and follow the cloud bands of Jupiter which carry the Great Red Spot over the planet. The shadows cast by the larger moons of Jupiter are also visible with a 150mm aperture.

You can even start astrophotography and take your first photos - of the moon for example.

If you are looking for a fast, but nevertheless very compact telescope, then this size of telescope is exactly right.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • high resolution with the 150mm aperture
  • 1.25" focuser with large range of focus
  • simply location of objects
  • adjustment screws for secondary and main mirrors
  • compact 66cm length
  • outside tube diameter 185mm

The following is included in delivery:

  • 25mm ploessl eyepiece giving 30X magnification
  • 6.5mm ploessl eyepiece giving 115X magnification
  • Red Dot finder scope for easy location of celestial objects
  • 2x Barlow lens for doubling the eyepiece magnification

EQ-4 mount:

The parallactic EQ-4 mount is a solid base for your telescope optics. This telescope mount lets you acquire any point in the night sky and then easily track it. With slow motions for both right ascension and declination axes, objects can be precisely adjusted, tracked, and held in the field of view. A counterweight takes care of exact counterbalancing of the optics.

The built-in polar finder scope and very sturdy polar block means starting astrophotography is a piece of cake. You do not simply find the Pole star, but can find the invisible north celestial pole itself within just a few minutes. The aluminium tripod can be simply adjusted to the required height.

The differences to the Omegon EQ-3 mount:

  • The EQ-4 is significantly more stable
  • significantly less susception to vibration
  • sturdier counterweight bar
  • significantly sturdier polar block
  • finer adjustment possible in azimuth
  • only the EQ-4 has a polar finder scope

It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.

My first telescope - Omegon 150/750 EQ4

Review by M. C. on 30.12.2015 16:24:19

( 4 / 5 )

The telescope was received in good order at the third working day after placing the order. This is exactly as indicated on the website. I used standard UPS and am living in The Netherlands.
Assembling was not too hard, although the manual could be a bit better. Some YouTube instructions were necessary to better explain all features, especially of the mount.
I have not found (yet) the spirit level, which should be somewhere. Also there is no DVD "Eyes on the Sky", which is indicated to be included on the website.
I bought the EQ4 mount instead of the EQ3 in order to have the most stable base. However I am a bit surprised about the amount of flexibility that this mount still has. Especially there is little resistance against torsion of the base plate. In my opinion this is caused be the fact that each main leg of the tripod is constructed out of two aluminium profiles instead of one. I do hope / expect that this is not going to cause problems. If so I am thinking of strengthening the legs by means of some doubler plate glued / rivotted on the original legs, it should be easy.
Anyway, Astroshop perfectly delivered what they promised. Now I am waiting for some clear evening skies to come...
