The Bresser Messier 6" Dobsonian offers the performance and qualities rivaling many other more expensive telescopes, in fact there are many dedicated Dobsonian telescope users groups, passionate about these designs and given the outstanding performance of these telescopes and their price, its easy to see why.
The attraction lies in the uncomplicated handling. Simply place the entire telescope on a flat surface and align it to view the desired object. With the 150 mm diameter optics, observation is not limited to the moon and the planets of our solar system - you can look much further into the night sky and observe globular clusters, nebulae and galaxies.
Despite its lower price, it offers a range of functions and quality, which one would expect to find on more advanced telescopes of this type. With an aperture diameter of 150mm and a 1200mm focal length with color-pure mirror optics, observations of the moon, the planets and star clusters can be viewed quite easily. The craters and grooves on the moons surface as well as the rapidly changing shadow cast on the so-called Terminator are particularly exciting targets to view through this telescope. Saturn with its imposing ring structure, Jupiter with the cloud bands and the movement of its easily visible moons, the crescent shape of Venus and the reddish smoldering Mars are also good examples of what can be viewed with this telescope..
In short, this is a telescope primarily suitable for detailed space observations and is an excellent choice for beginners in Astronomy. For stowage or transport the base assembly can be disassembled quite easily and flat packed for convenience.
