Omegon Advanced X N 152/1200 DobsonianWith a main mirror diameter of 152 millimeters and 94% enhanced coatings, it collects enough light to see a number of celestial objects. The slim telescope shows its strengths primarily when observing planets and star clusters. The focal length of 1200mm makes it easy to achieve slightly higher magnifications. The included 25 mm eyepiece gives 48x magnification, with additional eyepieces a range of 30x to 240x is usable.

The included Crayford focuser can accommodate 2″ and 1.25″ eyepieces with the 1.25″ adapter. The scope has TeflonĀ© bearings and tensioning springs which facilitate easy movement of the telescope in all directions, up to the zenith or around its own axis. And it achieves a fast cool-down through the main mirror fan.

The telescope is shipped in two boxes, the tube box and the base box. To keep box volume to a minimum, the base is supplied disassembled. To assemble the base, you only need a Philips-type screwdriver. Assembly takes about 20 minutes, and all supplied parts are easily put together.
