TS-PHOTON 6" F4 Advanced Newtonian Telescope with Metal Tube The PHOTON Newtonian reflector with 154 mm aperture and the aperture ratio f/4 is a fast travel telescope for astrophotography and visual observing. ♦ Aperture 154 mm (6") - focal length 600 mm - focal ratio F4 ♦ High-quality parabolic primary mirror with enhanced reflectivity for a brighter image. ♦ Large secondary mirror for a well-illuminated image with astro and DSLR cameras. ♦ Precise 2" MONORAIL focuser for more stability than with conventional Crayford focusers. ♦ Adjustable primary and secondary mirror cells made of metal, useful collimation aid on the primary mirror. ♦ With only 530 mm length and approx. 5 kg weight, this is an optimal travel telescope which can even be mounted on good photo tripods. ♦ Focus position ready for the TS GPU Superflat Corrector and the TS 2KORRR 0.73x Reducer / Corrector. ♦ Central mark on the primary mirror for easy collimation ♦ Extensive scope of delivery: 8x50 finder, tube rings, 2" extension tube, adapter to 1.25"
Ceravolo HD 145 Maksutov Newtonian Telescope with rings, dew shield. This is a rare scope with premium optics. It will give stunning views of the deep sky with a flat FOV as well as high mag views of solar system objects. It has a very small central obstruction, and it will give 140mm apos a run for the money--at a far lower cost. The scope comes with a 2" helical focuser and 1.25" adapter, dew shield, heavy rotrating rings and Losmandy 18" D plate. A Rigel is included as well as a metal objective cover and fancy shower cap. The scope weighs about 25# with the rings attached. I recommend a G-11 class mount, although the scope can be used as a dob with the rings removed. It is in excellient condition with a few scruffs on the shiny tube and perhaps a few small sleeks on the corrector. Collimation is dead on and does not need regular adjusting.
Item condition: used Item with possible small cosmetic deffect, but every function works perfect
The Sky-Watcher EXPLORER-150PL is a fantastic choice for intermediate astronomers and also the serious beginner. Has a large 150mm of light gathering aperture combined with superb parabolic optics. With a longer focal length of f/8 this telescope provides higher magnification with a given eyepiece than its f/5 cousin, the Explorer-150P. Delivers excellent performance for the observation of the Moon, planets, nebulae, galaxies, star clusters and tight double-stars.
Hotech SCA-2D Laser Collimator with perfect Centering for 1 1/4" and 2" 2" and 1 1/4" Laser, no clamping or decentering through selfcentering mechanism This laser can be used with all 1 1/4" and 2" focuser and tubes. Its clever self centering mechanism will not clamp the laser with screws, the housing spreads out and centers best possible in the focuser. Variances of different manufacturer of the 2" and 1 1/4" tubes will be compensated through this mechanism. The laser solves different problems: Tolerances between different focuser tubes parallelism inside the focuser because of the wide contact surface Tilting is not an issue, because it will not be campled punctually with screws The laser has a reticle with 45° markings, so it´s easy to find out which adjusting screw you have to turn. The result is, it´s not a mystery which screw you have to turn to center the laser point in all directions. Tiny laser point A fine laser point allows the best possible precission for adjustment. Most laser have a large laser spot, so the adjustment will be a gamble. Thanks to the tiny laserbeam the SCA laser allows the best possible adjustment quality. As an alternative you can get this laser also with a fine crosshair. Longlife battery With the CR123 3 V battery you can use the laser 60 h at a time.

Celestron 200 mm Newtonian with focal ratio 1:5 A universal telescope with much power and comfort The parabolic primary of this 8" Newtonian mirror minimizes spherical aberration to produce a sharper image near the edge of the field of view. This scope is great for intermediate visual observers and beginning astroimagers looking for a large aperture with lots of light-gathering power. As the telescope is meant for users who already have a suitable mount, there is no mount included! The optics An 8" mirror collects a lot of light, increasing the perception of dim celestial objects. The relatively short focal length and the 2" focuser have a positive effect when viewing large objects, as the latter can be seen completely in the large true field of view. Because of the large focal ratio, "hard" nebula filters can be applied when using eyepieces of long focal lenght, resulting in a clearly enhanced contrast. On the other hand, the parabolic primary mirror allows high magnifications - helpful for moon, planets, planetary nebulae ans smaller galaxies. The low obstruction of only 26% gives more contrast, thus having advantages when observing planets. Of course, the fast optics has also advantages in photography, is it reduces the exposure times. The coma, typical for Newtonians, can be eliminated by a coma corrector, achieving high sharpness even in the corners of the image.
