Product Description

Make the right choice and experience a fascinating journey through the starlit sky with this Seben telescope, or enjoy splendid observations of landscapes and animals from large distances.

The Dobson design is especially characterized by its handy short focal length of 300mm combined with a 76mm aperture that ensures high intensity of light. These characteristics turn this telescope into the ideal device for all those who want to observe quickly and uncomplicated.

It is of course also perfectly suitable as travelling telescope.

Easy-To-Use means that it is hardly possible to make observations easier as with this telescope. It is so simple that even completely inexperienced people and children (approx. >6) can use it and enjoy fascinating observations right away.

The telescope will be delivered to you readily assembled. Due to its size it can easily be stored in a cupboard or even on a shelve. Storing it like that will give any house an interesting and scientific touch.

The Dobson mount which is used for this telescope is in contrast to many simple astronomy-mounts not only extremely stable, but it can also quickly and easily be moved to aim at any point in the sky or on earth. The Dobson mount is horizontally pivotable by 360 and can be tilted.

This enables best observation conditions, especially if you want to shift from celestial to terrestrial viewing or vice versa.

Whereas you usually have to spend a lot of extra money for important accessories with other manufacturers, there is not a penny extra to be paid with us!

5.0 out of 5 stars superb starter telescope 18 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
I received the very well wrapped package earlier than expected. Very easy to set up and managed to focus within a few minutes. Very light and portable. The adjustment screw is not very precise. I am a designer so I bought a spare tripod mount, adapted the base of the telescope to attach the tripod mount. I can now quickly attach the telescope to a good quality camera tripod and use these controls for adjustment. My main use is terrestrial views as I live near the coast but also bird watching etc. I intend to buy a camera mount so that I can use the scope in place of a very expensive telephoto lens. Mr camera is a canon 600d so this should attach to the telescope securely using my modified mount. Only slight disappointment is the quality of the erecting lens and I Will probably buy a better quality one in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great telescope 4 Mar 2013
By Mr K
Verified Purchase
I bought this telescope as a present for a 'frequent flier' and wanted something that would fit in airline hand luggage. This telescope fits the bill well. Its base is 20 cm diameter and it stands about 32.5 cm tall when the telescope is stored vertically. The box is approximately 21 x 21 x 33 cm.

The telescope arrived 5 days (3 working days) after ordering and was sent from Germany. I was a little concerned when the package arrived as there was some damage to the packaging, but I needn't have worried because the telescope comes very well packaged in a box in a box in a box. There is also a foam block which stops the telescope moving around in transit.

The base is made from laminated wood and is well made and solid. The telescope body is made of metal and again seems robust and of good quality. The eyepieces are made of a combination of plastic and metal and again are well made.

As advertised, the telescope comes with a 'big pack' which seems to contain everything you are likely to need with the exception of a moon filter. As an aside, I made the mistake of ordering a 'Celestron Moon Filter' from Amazon at the same time, which is virtually impossible to fit without stripping the thread (see reviews).

Unfortunately, I am not really able to comment too much upon the quality of the image as I bought this as a present, and have only had an hour to 'play' whilst the recipient was out, and of course it was cloudy. However, observing ground based objects seemed fine, and I have no concerns about the quality from my limited play time.

It would have been extremely useful of the telescope came with an idiot's guide.

Seben aren't wrong when they describe this scope as 'easy to use'. It took less than a minute from opening the box to spotting small birds in the trees opposite. Just insert an eyepiece, turn the focusing knobs and you're done.

We haven't had a chance to test it out on the night skies yet, but it seems well constructed and up to the task. Don't expect a masterpiece of engineering at this price point... what you do get something very usable for the beginner, something designed to encourage children to look, learn and grow into astronomy.

Seben themselves are equally proficient - quick postage, brief but clear instructions and a lot of enthusiasm for you to review their products!

Overall it looks perfect for my 6-year old daughter and not so bad for 46-year old me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Night sky images are not very clear at all, even when using the x50 lens. My 8 x 42.5 gas filled binoculars are much better. I know the scope is at budget price but I expected clearer images. Lesson learned and I have since found out that if you want to see good clear images you need to spend at least 400 on a scope. Hope this helps future buyers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Astronomical Binoculars 26 Jan 2013

Dobson 300-76 ETU (Easy-To-Use) Telescope including Big Pack

The experts tell us that every keen astronomer should have a pair of binoculars for they are indispensable when finding astronomical structures and similar sky objects by which to navigate the cosmos, because of their very wide field of view.

This is where Seben's Dobson 300-76 comes in handy. In binocular terminology it should really be called a 100x76 monocular i.e. having a magnification of 100 with an eye-piece of 76 mm diameter.

Useful astronomical binoculars should have a magnification of 7 to 12 times to show good astronomical detail, and a large lense of 50 to 84 to give the better viewing especially in poor light conditions i.e. most light to actually enter your eye pupil (Exit Pupil). Both these 2 essentials mean more weight, and more weight means difficulty in holding the binoculars steady enough and long enough for viewing. Sky-at-Night recommends using a large floor brush upside down!

Seben meets this weight problem most neatly by providing a versatile base, the Dobson mount. This makes the Dobson 300-76 so so easy to use, and moreover, it can view objects directly above unlike a telescope.

The 76 mm diameter gives more than ample light but I would say it could have been larger and got nearer the ideal exit pupil width of 5-9 mm. At 15x magnification we are talking about 105 mm, but hey won't the cost then spoil the fun?

This piece of kit is great fun to use and it is so clever in its simplicity it is a joy just having it.
