The Bresser Messier AR-80/640 Nano is a great starter telescope for both adults and young children looking for a first telescope to view some of the larger objects in the solar system such as the Moon and the larger planets.
Solar System objects like the Moon will appear nice and sharp, especially the larger craters and surface features such as the 'Montes Apenninus' mountain range. Under steady sky conditions, using a stronger eyepiece eg. a 15mm eyepiece and x2 Barlow (sold seperately) it will also possible to make out Saturns rings or the two main cloud belts on Jupiter as well as Jupiters 3 larger moons.
You can even share your fantastic views of space with your friends and family, as this telescope also includes a small smartphone holder so you can use your smartphone to capture some nice photos through the eyepiece.
The Mount: An essential part of any beginner telescope is the mounts simplicity, and the Nano ALT-AZ mount is exactly that. Having a telescope that is quick and easy to setup and use means you will most likely use it a lot more often - an important consideration when choosing a telescope. This is why Alt-AZ mounts are so popular with both beginners and experienced amateurs as a convenient grab and go telescope. The Nano Alt-AZ mount offers a sturdy platform with smooth controls to allow you to effortlessly scan the night sky.
The mount is as easy to use as a photo tripod, it is just more stable and easily carries telescopes weighing up to 4kg and with a weight of only 3.4kg, its also very easy to store and transport. The telescope is securely held by a clamp for 44mm prism rails, (the so-called GP Level) which is an international standard and all telescopes with a GP prism rail can also be used on this mount.
