MEADE telescopes with a discount of up to 29%!

December 19 2017, Stefan Taube

We are now offering a large selection of MEADE telescopes at an extra special price!

LightBridge Dobson

LightBridge-12-Zoll

With Dobson telescopes in the LightBridge series, the grid tube structure became really popular. Thanks to the grid structure, the tube can be taken apart, i.e. you can take the telescope to a dark sky and set it up there. The main mirror in Dobson telescopes is, however, not exposed, and so it’s protected from dew.

Our offer:

 

Bracket mounting SC telescopes: LX90 and LX200

LX200-10-Zoll

MEADE is more well-known for its SC telescopes than for its Dobson models. The Schmidt-Cassegrain optics make it possible to have a very short tube with a high focal length. In combination with the bracket mounting, these optics offer astonishingly compact and sturdy full systems. The LX200 mount is fitted with computer control (GoTo).

The SC optics was further developed by MEADE: ACF stands for Advanced Coma Free – This means that you get pinpoint star images up to the edge of the field of view.

Our offer:

  • ACF-SC 254/2540 10″ UHTC LX90 GoTo currently at €2,550.00. You save €830.00.
  • ACF-SC 203/2000 8″ UHTC LX200 GoTo currently at €2,815.00. You save €735.00.
  • ACF-SC 254/2500 10″ UHTC LX200 GoTo currently at €4,009.00. You save €890.00.

 

LightSwitch: Telescopes with in-built astronomers

LS-8

Do you need a little bit more assistance? The telescopes in the LightSwitch series not only have GoTo control to find the stars, they carry out the necessary initialisation fully automatically at the start of the observation: You don’t have to enter the station, date or time; nor do you have to align the telescope to the stars in the sky. And there’s even more good news: LightSwitch telescopes have audio controls (in English).

Our offer:

  • ACF-SC 152/1524 LightSwitch 6 GoTo currently at €1798.00. You save €452.00.
  • ACF-SC 203/2000 LightSwitch 8 GoTo currently at €2120.00. You save €770.00.

 

Starlook LX600: Telescopes with autoguiders

LX600-12

The idea of equipping a telescope with a fixed camera for control reached its peak with the LX600 series. The camera is integrated into the telescope tube optics, with which the telescope remains very precisely oriented towards an object. This process, called autoguiding, is important for astrophotography.

Our offer:

  • ACF-SC 254/2032 Starlock LX600 currently at €5,609.00. You save €981.00.
  • ACF-SC 355/2845 Starlock LX600 currently at €9,120.00. You save €2080.00.

Both LX600 telescopes are assembled azimuthal. With the polar wedge they can, however, be set up parallactically for astrophotography too, with long exposure times. This wedge is also suitable for LX200 telescopes.

This offer remains while stock lasts – order now!

By the way: We don’t just do good deals; we offer the entire MEADE range, including an extensive array of accessories.

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!
