Important information for everyone interested in astronomy products:
Don’t buy a pig in a poke! We would like to point out some important aspects which you should consider to be able to make the best buying decision possible.
Very often customers who are interested in astronomy products do not realise that there are big quality differences between similar looking products. It is not sufficient to simply compare the specifications only. For a qualified comparison you need to consider that the quality of the products depends crucially on the materials used in their production. What customers do not seem to know is that a manufacturer can decide between different quality levels when producing optical instruments (1st choice to 4th choice). Since its founding Seben has exclusively manufactured first choice products only. This is one of the main reasons why Seben products are used 100,000 fold worldwide.
For more than one decade Seben has been delivering high quality products all over the world. Among our clients we count thousands and thousands of private users as well as known institutions, which did not decide in favour of our products before they ran extensive tests.
Please consider that the market has been flooded with many different offers for astronomy products just recently. But behind most of these offers products of bad quality or second choice are hiding, which the clueless customer can not determine as such.
Many of the seemingly top offers appear on the market overnight and disappear as quickly for a good reason. Consequently the customers are stuck with a product of low quality; without assistance, spare parts and repair service.
For a few months now disappointed astronomy customers of other sellers have been contacting us - disappointed with their product or their seller - asking us for assistance. In most cases they paid a proud price to purchase a telescope and nonetheless received an item with faults or defects. Take into consideration that only a small part needs to break; if the seller and/or the product are not available anymore, what you will remain with is only scrap. Seben instead holds a large spare part depot and is even able to help customers who bought a Seben product more than 10 years ago.
Far worse however is the fact that such easy-come-easy-go-sellers often imitate our Seben advertisements and try to mislead the customers into believing they are purchasing a high quality Seben astronomy product. We absolutely want to dissociate ourselves from such offers and we do not have spare parts or accessories for such products. We would like to clarify this in advance to avoid any further disappointments.
Trust in Seben astronomy products only, as they have already been tried and tested thousand fold! Buy from us with the total reassurance that you will get time-proven quality and good service!
Seben's Big Boss 1400-150 reflector telescope is, because of its perfect workmanship and enormous performance data, the unquestioned top telescope of Seben's astronomy series.
Undreamed of possibilities become true for the ambitious user of Seben's Big Boss telescope because of its huge 150mm aperture and the tremendous focal length of 1400mm.
Seben's Big Boss telescope is a catadioptric telescope. The greatest advantage of this design is its compactness that you will especially notice during the transport and the setting up of the telescope. And since the wind hasn't got such a great target, it won't be shaken so badly during stormy nights.
Far-away observation targets, which can hardly be seen with average telescopes, are stunningly close with Seben's Big Boss telescope. Faintest discernable stars: 13.8M! (over 5,650,000 stars visible!!!!)
Enjoy the superior light gathering ability and high resolution of Seben's Big Boss telescope!
Because of its up-to-date-construction, and in combination with its modern, high performance 1.25” (31.7mm) accessory sockets, you are able to equip Seben's Big Boss telescope with nearly every accessory available. It is even possible to extend Seben's Big Boss telescope for the popular pastime of Astrophotography!
Please note, that Seben's Astronomy Products are always provided with a lot of accessories, for which you usually would have to pay a lot of money! Contrary to that, we provide you considerably accessories for free!
The added 31.7mm (1.25“) Moon Filter reduces the Moon's glare. This is produced by reflected sunlight and normally washes out most of the craters and other surface details from view.
The 31.7mm (1.25“) 1,5x Erecting Eyepiece produces an upright and side correct image. This is of particular importance for terrestrial viewing, because usually the image would appear upside down in an astronomical telescope. You can use it for unforgettable terrestrial observations. Animals, birds and landscapes can be seen in unimaginable precision, even over great distances.
Because of its lower power the 6x30 Finder Scope makes it easier to locate celestial objects.
With the provided 31.7mm (1.25“) Plössl eyepieces (25mm, 6.5mm) the foundation stone for a high quality eyepiece collection is laid. Plössl eyepieces have always been known for their high quality and provide a clearly notable increased image quality than ordinary eyepieces. With these two eyepieces you can look forward to observe with the following magnifications, without further accessories having to be bought expensively: 56x, 215x.
The extremely stable, vertically adjustable Tripod enables best observation conditions, especially if you want to shift from celestial to terrestrial viewing or vice versa.
Furthermore we want to accentuate the equatorial mount of the telescope, which enables easy tracking of celestial objects as they move across the night sky. Contrary to a simply two-axis altazimuth mount which can only be moved in altitude, up and down, or azimuth, side to side, as separate motions, an equatorial mount also has a rotational axis parallel to the Earth's axis of rotation. The equatorial axis (the right ascension) of an equatorial mount is paired with a second perpendicular axis of motion (known as the declination).
Seben's Big Boss telescope and its tremendous performance will impress you to such a great extent that you will be fascinated by it for the rest of your life!
