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 optical tube assembly (OTA) is offered here without a
mount or tripod for users that already have an observational platform.
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.
there is no mount included, a mounting cradle-ring assembly is provided.
It 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. A stainless steel Vixen-style dovetail plate makes it
compatible with any alt-az or equatorial mount with a Vixen-style
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.
