The traditional company Bresser offers telescopes for ambitious beginners at an excellent price-performance ratio under the name Messier. The Messier telescope systems are expandable and retrofittable, so they can be used far beyond the initial entry point.
The AC 80/640 optics: The 80mm diameter objective lens collects 31% more light than a comparable 70mm refracting telescope. This is noticeable in the optical performance. At a distance of 600 million km, the two main cloud bands on the planet Jupiter become visible and many Messier objects can be seen.
The short focal length of only 640mm allows impressive wide-field observations of open star clusters in our Milky Way. The short design also makes this refractor an interesting, low-cost travel telescope.
The optics are delivered almost completely pre-assembled and with all necessary accessories so you can start observing immediately without fiddling around. The refractors are also very stable and durable.
The Nano AZ mount: This single-arm mount is quickly set up and easy to operate. It is as easy to handle as a photo tripod. The mount supports up to 3.5kg, and all telescopes with Vixen standard prism rails can be mounted.
The stainless-steel tripod is a very stable base for the mount.
