Product Features in Detail
Lunar and Planetary viewing
Refractor telescopes are excellent for Lunar and Planetary viewing as they offer very crisp and sharp images.
It can provide excellent vistas of star fields, clusters, nebulae, galaxies, planets, the Moon and (with correct filtering or by projection) the Sun. It is also a fine terrestrial telescope when mounted on an alt-azimuth mount or a photographic tripod. Crisp images at a reasonable price make it an excellent beginner's "first telescope", or a great travelling telescope for a more advanced observer.
Strong and Sturdy Construction
Premium materials and expert craftsmanship go into each and every Skywatcher product. The mount which comes with the bundle is designed to provide a stable, vibration resistant platform for stargazing, enabling precise control over the telescope’s slewing and tracking.
High Quality Parts and Components
Skywatcher uses high quality components to ensure your telescope delivers sharp images with greatly reduced chromatic aberrations.
2" Dual-Speed Linear Power Focuser
The new linear power focuser utilises 4 precision ball bearings to support the drawtube and provide great stability and zero image shift while supporting a heavy eyepiece or camera. Moving the drawtube by the roller rather than a rack and pinion ensures exceptionally smooth operation, great feel and precise adjustability. The dual-speed feature has a second focus knob that has a 10:1 speed reduction to provide the super-fine adjustments even the most demanding users can appreciate.
Both models feature paraboloidal primary mirrors made of low thermal expansion Pyrex glass resulting in substantially shorter cooling-down times.
