Opticon Universe is a professional astronomical telescope for home use, recommended to both amateurs and professionals. The instrument is equipped with a primary mirror of 114mm aperture and 1000mm focal length. The tube, made of resilient alloy, is mounted on a full size aluminum tripod with a parallactic EQ-II head.

This model is also equipped with a finderscope.
Opticon Universe makes it possible to notice many objects from so-called Deep Space, such as galaxies. It is also perfect for watching planets. Thanks to this you are able to see straps of clouds on a surface of Jupiter, Saturn’s planetary rings, Mars’ disc or Venus’ phases.
