Product description:
Teacher telescope: This versatile Newtonian reflecting telescope provides both beginners and more
experienced amateur astronomers plenty of light and high stability for a very modest price. It collects so much
light with its generous 150mm diameter that distant DSOs such as the Ring Nebula in Lyra or the Dumbbell
Nebula become beautifully visible and globular clusters, such as M13, resolve into a multitude of individual
stars at their edges. Planetary observing provides rich detail in images of Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mars. The f5
focal ratio means this reflector falls into the class of ‘fast’ Newtonian telescopes. This telescope is therefore
particularly suitable for astrophotography. The light gathering capacity of the 150 is 460 times greater than that
of the naked eye alone (with a 7mm fully dilated pupil).
The advantages in a nutshell:
 relatively high light gathering power thanks to 150mm aperture
 resistant to vibration and wind due to compact design
 diffraction limited parabolic primary mirror
 high-contrast image due to thin secondary mirror spider vanes
 portable and quickly assembled
 exposure times for astrophotography can due to the short focal length
The PDS version of the Explorer comes with a dual speed focuser. This has a 1:10 reduction ratio for sensitive
focusing which is most important for astrophotography, but is also very useful for visual observing. The tube
length has been slightly shortened compared to the Explorer P version and the secondary mirror has
consequently been enlarged in order to further optimize the system for astrophotography.
The NEQ-5 Pro GoTo mount:

This mount is a further development of the EQ-5 Pro in a white design. It provides a solid platform for most
medium-sized telescopes and is excellent for exploring the night sky. The polar elevation at the observing site
can be set using the fine scale provided and adjusted perfectly by using two screws. A polar finder can be
retrofitted. Fully equipped with motors in both axes and a SynScan hand control box to give you a complete
GoTo mount: the NEQ-5 is suitable not only for visual observing, but also for getting started in
astrophotography. With a little practice, you will soon be able to produce successful images of galaxies and
