Skywatcher 150mm (6") F/750 telescope with equatorial EQ5 mountWide field telescope on sturdy mount for observations of galaxies and nebulae
Sky-Watcher STARTRAVEL telescopes are two-element, air-spaced achromatic refractors, that are well proven performers for ‘Rich-Field’ views of comets, star fields, star clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies & planets, the Moon and the Sun (with proper safety filtering!), as well as giving excellent daytime terrestrial views when used with an erecting prism (not supplied with this model). These wide-field, short-tube telescopes are great as fixed aperture lenses for both Astrophotography and terrestrial photography. Their “fast" focal ratios make them useful for capturing lunar and solar eclipses as well as nature photographs.
The highly stable, equatorial Skywatcher EQ5 mount provides excellent precision and stability while providing also the experienced astronomer many useful features. The mount rests on a large, adjustable tripod with stainless steel legs and tray for accessories. It is equipped with a spirit level for leveling and a polar height adjustment with micrometer scale as well as an azimuthal adjustment. Furthermore, it has engraved pitch circles and control buttons for manual tracking. Optionally, a pole finder telescope is available for precise alignment to the celestial pole. The mount can also be retrofitted with optional tracking in RA or both axes as well as a SynScan GoTo control.
