Excellent and popular Saxon / Sky-Watcher Newtonian with diffraction limited optics. With 78% more light grasp than a 150mm scope and 137% more light grasp than a 130mm telescope, it yields magnificent images of deep-sky objects and crisp views of lunar mountains, craters including many popular features of the planets.
With GOTO functionality it is the perfect instrument for both the novice to serious amateur.

MOUNT - HEQ5 Pro and SynScan V4
This heavy-duty mount is a smaller version of the sturdy EQ6 mount. It is specially designed for observers who need the stability of the EQ6 mount, but find the EQ6 mount too physically demanding. Like the EQ6 mount, this high-precision equatorial mount features engraved aluminium setting circles and a latitude scale, built-in illuminated polar scope for Southern Hemisphere use, large R.A. and DEC. locking clamps, electric slow-motion controls on both axes, and retractable counterweight shaft and counterweight. The strong and rigid field tripod is remarkably stable with adjustable height, incorporating 1.5"-diameter steel tripod legs. My Astro Shop highly recommend this mount and this telescope!
SynScan hand-controller includes over 40,000 object database plus RS-232 interface for use with PC planetarium software and autoguider interface. Requires (optional) 12VDC 2A(min) regulated power supply.
