The range of Skywatcher telescopes are a good starting point for amateur astronomers, from the inquisitive beginner, to the seasoned stargazer who requires more highly developed optics and imaging platforms.
If you look through Skywatchers range of products, you will soon discover they offer an amazing choice of top quality astronomical telescopes and accessories, that are suitable for users of all ages and abilities.
Combined with modern optical technology and precision mechanical engineering resulting in designs of superb functionality, versatility and uncompromising levels of performance.
Optics are as you would expect of the finest quality, and are suitable for a wide range of observing applications, from the 50mm spotting scopes up to 150mm (6") refractors, 200mm (8") reflectors, and 250mm (10") Dobsonians.
As with all Skywatcher telescopes you should ensure they are balanced before each observing session because doing so minimizes stress on the telescope mount and makes it possible for precise control for micro-adjustment. This is especially relevant when using the optional clock drive for astrophotography.
Skywatcher scopes have received rave reviews and recommendations from leading astronomy magazines, and we believe that whatever your interest, terrestrial or celestial, there is a Skywatcher that will more than likely exceed all your expectations.
Polar Alignment & Setting Circles
The quickest way to find objects is to learn the Constellations and use the finderscope, but if the object is too faint you may want to use the setting circles. This enables you to locate celestial objects whose celestial co-ordinates have been determined from star charts.
Your telescope must be polar aligned and the R.A.settingcircle must be calibrated before using the setting circles.
Tube Rings make for easy installation of the optical tube and can be loosened during use to allow for tube Rotation and balancing.
Skyliner DobsonianThe Skywatcher Skyliner Dobsonian telescope is a long time favorite of countless amateur astronomers.
Skywatcher ED80 Evostar
