Saxon ED120 APO refractor with HEQ5 Pro GoTo mountadd this item to shopping cartThis product is highly recommended
Code: ED120DS-HEQ5
Saxon 120mm f/9 ED apochromat refractor with 10:1 dual speed Crayford focuser and HEQ5 Pro Goto equatorial mount


If you're serious about observing and astrophotography with an affordable apochromatic performance instrument with the added benefit of sealed optics and portability then look no further!

The Saxon ED refractor has an objective made from Schott ED (Extra-low Dispersion) FPL-53 glass precision manufactured in Japan which greatly minimises chromatic aberration while also providing higher resolution and superior contrast. Colour fringing around objects is virtually eliminated. The Saxon ED120mm refractor also features a backlash-free 2-inch dual speed Crayford focuser. The focuser wheels contain brushed-aluminium hubs with ridged rubber grip rings. These ED refractors are ideal for visual applications as well as astro-photography.

The view with this scope is tremendous!
