Only in August: up to €100 discount for newcomers to astronomy

August 3 2022, Marcus Schenk

Hot days, cloudless nights – and our prices are melting away too. Are you about to decide on your first telescope purchase? Then take advantage of our special summer astronomy offer. For a short time only, in August, we offer you high-quality telescopes and eyepieces at great prices. So, getting started in astronomy will be even more fun than ever.

After all, there is so much to discover in the night sky this summer: the big planets Saturn and Jupiter, for example. And quite honestly: who doesn’t want to stay up late in this weather, gaze at the sky and marvel at the Milky Way?

Omegon Advanced telescopes: the start of your journey to the stars

With Omegon Advanced you get attractive Newtonian telescopes with 130 and 150mm apertures. They’re packed full of observing fun: the parabolic primary mirror collects plenty of light and, with it, information about the universe, and it delivers sharp images. With its dual-axis mount you can track every star, planet or distant object – simply by using the practical fine adjustment shafts. So, you can share the wonders of the night sky with your whole family.

Omegon Advanced 130/650 EQ-320 #61022, was €399 now just €339

Omegon Advanced 150/750 EQ-320 #61021, was €499 now just €429

Imagine discovering Saturn’s rings or the clouds and moons surrounding Jupiter. These are the perfect telescopes for anyone who prefers to embark on their own journey of discovery, instead of simply admiring astronomy images in the media. So, why not take advantage of this chance of a reasonably-priced telescope to get you started?

Teleskop für Einsteiger

Here’s some of the things you can also see with your new telescope:

– the Moon and even individual lunar craters

– The large planets Jupiter, Saturn and Mars

– The Ring Nebula, a planetary nebula that looks like a smoke ring

– the Hercules Globular Cluster or M13, a globular cluster that looks like a snowball and which is 25,000 light years away

– and much more besides

Eyepiece set: the only set you’ll need to observe everything in the night sky

Who would have thought it: there’s actually a whole case of eyepieces for your telescope? But the best thing about it: you don’t have to spend time working out which eyepieces and filters are right for you. Instead of sitting in front of your computer screen for hours trying to decide, simply choose a complete set – giving you time to make the best of the hot weather at the beach. How does that sound?

Okularkoffer für Einsteiger

Our Omegon eyepiece sets are available in three versions with different features.

The starter set: with 2 eyepieces, Barlow lens and 3 filters, in a storage box, #49758, was €79 now just €69

 The medium set: with 4 eyepieces, Barlow lens, 6 filters and 1 Crystal View moon filter, in a sturdy aluminium case, #8353, was €189 now just €169

 The large set: with 4 eyepieces, Barlow lenses, 5 filters, moon filter and camera adapter, in a sturdy aluminium case, #23754, was €229 now just €199

Which case is best for whom? Choose the small set (49758) if you have a small telescope and want to quickly expand your accessories. The medium and the large cases each offer a 32mm Plössl eyepiece for views of the Milky Way, nebulae and galaxies. And a 6mm Plössl eyepiece to more closely observe the planets Saturn and Jupiter. From mid-August, a moon filter is the perfect tool for your telescope, because it reduces the brightness of the moonlight.

Combine a telescope with an eyepiece kit and you’re all set for hours of observing fun. You can save as much as €100 on your purchase (150mm telescope + large eyepiece set). But don’t miss out: these prices are only available in August.

So why not become a celestial observer this summer. The starry sky has plenty of surprises in store for you!

Price drop at the top – now is the right time to get into the Minox HG class

September 15 2017, Stefan Rieger

Only as long as supplies lasts: Now the fantastic Minox HG-Binoculars are available with a discount of up to 30%. Be quick and get your hands on your own Minox HG.

Hikers, nature lovers and hunters now have the chance to get into a binocular series made in Germany, the series of Minox HG Binoculars, for particularly attractive prices. “HG” stands for “High Grade” and is Minox’s name for binoculars that correspond with the high-resolution products from other manufacturers. What distinguishes this product line? Already at first glance, the “slim waist” is a striking feature. With a pair of these binoculars in your hands, you will experience their good and haptically appealing feel. Minox binoculars are real hand adulators. Another striking feature is their light weight. These binoculars are, throughout the range, lighter than the binoculars from all competitors with identical technical data.

Das Minox HG 10x43 BR

However, the stylish design does by no means adversely affect the performance. The HGs offer brilliant, high-contrast images, at the quality level of considerably more expensive products. This standard is achieved by the use of optics made of high-quality special glass from SCHOTT and annealing of up to 21 applied layers on the glass surface. The result is an excellent light transmission which delivers bright, relatively detailed images. Anybody interested in the hand swinging projection of the Common Tern or the iris colour of the Whitethroat just discovered in the bushes, will be more than pleased.

Moreover, the Minox HG Binoculars convince with interesting details. The eyepieces, which are obviously also suitable for persons wearing glasses, have fixed latching steps. Under cold ambient temperatures the focus can be effortlessly adjusted, even with gloves. The Quick Close Focus mechanics of these binoculars only need one rotation, from short range to infinite. A new and unique feature is the scale for quick distance determination. A quick look at the focusing knob makes the binoculars a reliable range finder. The scale on the focusing wheel of the MINOX HG Binoculars provides information about the distance to the object in view – a highly welcome additional use for hunters.

Das Minox HG 8x43 BR

Binoculars of the HG series are available in various designs. Users who are frequently active outdoors and would like to save as much weight as possible, will most likely be interested in the  Minox HG 8×33 or the Minox HG 8×43. Furthermore, the standard version, the Minox HG 10×43, is also available. Hunters and others, interested in using binoculars at dawn, elect to use the Minox HG 10×52, the large aperture of which lets considerably more light reach the eye, and thus allows longer observing times at dusk and dawn.

All HG binoculars have a tripod connecting thread. With an L-adapter, they can be easily mounted on conventional photo tripods. Additionally, they are also gas filled and therefore waterproof down to a depth of 5 metres. If you are looking for binoculars of excellent workmanship and stable value, you will be well served with this product series, which is adapted to all individual requirements. We wish you interesting observations and exciting experiences in nature!
