NEW – now including a high-quality aperture Solar-filter for safe observation of sunspots, eclipses and planet transits. Great telescope for night and solar observation.

The MESSIER MC-152 excells due to its compact optics and low weight. The long focal length of this telescope facilitates relaxed observations with high magnifications – the compact size and low weight makes it the perfect mobile telescope. 150mm aperture enable you to observe bright nebulas in the depth of space. Find the remnants of a gigantic stellar explosion in the year 1054 in the constallation Taurus or scan the glowing bands of the Great Orion Nebula. Detect the famous Whirlpool Galaxy in the Big Dipper or find the Dumpbell-Nebula in the constellation Vulpecula. The rigidity of the mount provides relaxed observations and supports first steps into the subject of astrophotography.
