Omegon Telescope AC 80/400 OTA
The 80/400 OTA – for the heavens and the Earth
Whether for astronomy or terrestrial observing – the Omegon 80/400 OTA allows both. This kind of telescope has become known as a ‘rich-field’ telescope or ‘comet finder’. The field of view is so large that it allows you to observe a huge swathe of the night sky. Comet discoverers value telescopes with a short focal length. You can go on your own ‘spacewalk’ – naturally the telescope also provides a great view of the famous Andromeda galaxy and many open clusters.
Are you an avid nature-watcher too? Then you can use the telescope for observing deer at the edge of a forest, chamois on steep rocky slopes in the mountains or distant ships at sea. And, when it gets dark again, you can once again immerse yourself in the universe.
