BINTEL Dobsonian Telescopes – only a few left

There’s nothing like a big Dobsonian telescope for viewing the delights of the night sky. They offer the best size to cost value of any telescope! Great for seeing Solar System jewels like the rings of Saturn, Jupiter and its satellites, craters and mountains on the Moon as well as vast numbers of deep-sky objects like nebulae, star clusters and even galaxies.

We were lucky enough to secure a large shipment of these popular telescopes in the first week of July.  Thanks to everyone who purchased them – we now only have a limited number of the BINTE Dobsonian 12″ models still available to send to you today (Sorry – all of the 6″, 8″ and 10″ modes are now sold.) Please remember we’re dispatching online and phone orders daily during lockdown in Sydney and contactless less click and collect pick up is available for Sydney locals.

If you are interest in one of the BINTEL Dobsonian telescope models that has sold out, we’re are expecting more in a few months. Get in contact with us to reserve one

All BINTEL Dobsonian are fully featured  – check out each model below:

Astrophotography – Starlight meets the computer

According to the American Astronomical Society, the  charged couple device or CCD   was born on 17 October 1969 at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey during a brain storming session between Willard Boyle and George Smith.  While it was originally intended as a solid state storage device, the imaging possibilities quickly became obvious.

Spotting Scopes and Binoculars – what’s the difference?

Most people are familiar with binoculars.  You might have even used a pair at the footy or cricket,  to watch  some of our wonderful native Australian birds and wildlife or even stare up the  night sky.

📷 Astrophotography – The Early Days

Humans have produced star maps, charts, drawings and other records of the unchanging night sky above us going back to ancient times. However,  even the most talented artists were limited to what could be seen with their eyes. Early pioneers of using the telescope for astronomy quickly discovered they needed to record and share their…

⊚ The Changing Rings of Saturn

Saturn takes 29 years to orbit the Sun. The view we see of it rings changes during this time for the same reason we have seasons. Like the Earth, Saturn is on a tilt.  Image of Saturn’s changing rings by Kevin Parker When you take your telescope out to view Saturn this winter, you might…

How many stars can I see in the night sky?

How many stars can you count? Have you ever been under a completely dark night sky, on a night with no Moon light?  There’s nothing quite like that carpet of stars that stretches from horizon to horizon with the cloudy Milky Way running through the middle. But just how many stars can you see at…
