Designed for enhanced astrophotography and imaging performance, the Bresser 8" f/3.9 Reflector Telescope has a shortened focal length versus conventional scopes with a similar aperture to produce a fast f/3.9 focal ratio - translating to shorter exposure times. The scope is offered here with the computer-controlled motorized Exos-2 GoTo mount that features a 100,000+ database guidance system, dual-axis motors, a sturdy tripod, and an illuminated pole finder scope. To ensure crisp images, the scope is outfitted with the 'Clik-Fix' secondary mirror mechanism that allows users to make fine adjustments to the mirror position to perfectly collimate it with the primary mirror without the need for tools, and a coma corrector to eliminate halos that can appear around brighter images and allows users to easily split binary stars. Its large 8" primary mirror allows planets and the Moon to appear bright and clear while having the capacity to see out of the solar system to observe and image nebulae, galaxies, and binary stars.

This version of the scope comes equipped with the Exos-2 GoTo motorized equatorial mount and helps take the guess-work out of astronomy and gets you observing faster by combining an EQ mount with a 100,000+ database computer guidance system and dual-axis motors. To make set-up and alignment faster and easier, Bresser includes an illuminated polar finder scope for use in the Northern Hemisphere. The included tripod is built with large 2" diameter stainless steel legs and tight tolerances to reduce vibration for clearer viewing. A center stabilizer bar pulls the accessory tray up to lock the legs in place adding further rigidity and vibration reduction. It is adjustable from 29 to 49" to accommodate a wide range of users. The mounting cradle-ring assembly clamps over the optical tube and lets the user adjust the orientation and position of the scope relative to the mount to optimize viewing comfort and balancing, while avoiding interference with other equipment.

The SkyTracker kit includes the hand controller unit, and right ascension and declination motors. Its hand controller has more than 100,000 objects with the ability for users to input custom coordinates and favorites. With a slew speed of 2°/second and nine tracking speeds the SkyTracker can accurately keep near and deep sky objects such as the Moon, planets, galaxies and nebulae centered in your eyepiece for long exposure imaging and astrophotography or prolonged observation sessions.

The scope is equipped with a 2" focuser for over-sized eyepieces and accessories, and comes with a 1.25" reducer adapter to use smaller and more popular eyepieces. The focuser is a Crayford-style, instead of the more common rack-and-pinion, which uses a steel rod held tightly against the drawtube to provide a toothless friction system that eliminates backlash and enables ultra-fine precision focusing with its 10:1 reduction micro-focusing knob.
