215mm Astro Systems Newtonian Reflector Telescope

The 215mm F6 Newtonian Reflector is an excellent telescope for visual astronomy. It is easy to handle and assembles within minutes. The tube and mount combination weighs just 17kg, so it is light enough to pick up and carry as an assembled piece, making it easy for you to get the best views of the night sky from yuor garden.

This telescope will reveal intricate detail in Jupiter’s cloud bands, markings on the surface of Mars, the ghostly smoke ring of M57 the Ring Nebula, breathtaking ribbons of twisted light inside M42 the Orion Nebula, and countless other planetary and deep sky objects. 

It is assembled from two parts: the telescope tube, which weighs 8kg, and the metal alt-azimuth mount complete with counter weights, which weighs 9kg.

Attaching the tube to the mount is easy. The ring cradle encircling the tube contains threaded metal rods. The rods slide through the horizontal openings on the head of the mount, and are secured by threading on two knurled knobs. Once attached the tube needs to be balanced in the ring cradle to ensure it is stable on the stand.

Balancing is straightforward. You simply loosen the ring cradle using the two smaller knurled knobs on the cradle itself, and gently slide the tube up or down to get a firm balance. Once there the cradle is again tightened.
