This is kind of a cool reflector in the sense that it is a rich field type, it does NOT use a built-in barlow, the optics are quite decent, and the focuser is a true 1.25". These are all win situations with beginners or especially for a telescope that will be used in outreach. In this not a lot of money is invested, but you still have a very nice telescope that will further someone's interest into backyard astronomy.

So this Bresser is a 4.5-inch f/4 (500mm) reflector that gets views comparable (very closely) to an Edmund Astroscan. At this focal length you are up to bat with brighter nebulae, lots of open clusters, the Moon, main planets, and, what I think it is best at; rich star fields in the Milky Way.
Plossls, orthos, and Ultima/Ultrascopic oculars are best. Kellners and MOST of their cousins should be avoided because they will magnify coma. RKEs are just fine in this reflector. Max power you should shovel-out will be to the tune of 90x. After that, images will be soft. But that is to be expected with such a fast scope.

Cosmetics are very excellent on all but the tube itself, which is excellent due to a small scratch. Focuser is very smooth. Optics are excellent clean and need NO maintenance of any kind. Collimation as of now is spot on. The finder will need a new battery, otherwise it is VERY clean.

THIS WILL FIT INTO ANY MAJOR BRAND 114MM SINGLE TUBE CLAMP OR DUAL HINGED RING SYSTEM for your mount.

Weighs 4 pounds 2 oz.

Price doesn't include shipping. I will ship to anyone anywhere.
