Description

The new Saxon 1141EQMS Newtonian Reflector Telescope is another quality telescope from Saxon. This is a telescope that’s well suited for entry level astronomers and even the more serious hobbyists. It has a powerful viewing capacity while its compact size that makes it a breeze to pack and carry with you.

Take it along with you
The 1141EQMS features a compact Newtonian design making it easy to transport with you to your favorite observation site. Even with its compact size it still packs a very respectable 114mm aperture. With the included Super 10mm and 25mm eyepieces, you’ll get enough magnification power to see the features of our nearby planetary neighbors, the moon and all the popular celestial objects.

Designed for Novice and Intermediate users
This telescope stands in the middle ground between entry level scopes and high powered, advanced ones. One of the biggest improvement to this telescope compared to the entry level ones is the addition of the Equatorial Mount. This mount is geared towards more serious tracking and observation of celestial bodies.

Improved Viewing Experience
The Saxon 1141EQMS is packed with features that helps it deliver one of the best stargazing experiences among telescopes of the same aperture size. Aside from slow motion controls, the included motor drive also lets you control where the telescope points without having to do manual adjustments. This helps in reducing the vibrations that come from handling the telescope knobs. Vibrations that affect the image clarity.

make a bag of popcorn, its gonna be a long ride.
when it arrived, i was really exited, i set it up and tested all the little knobs, and how it works, everything worked perfectly. night then came and i carried it outside, pretty easy, went on to find the orion nebula, hard. i then realised the finder scope was there, so i adjusted it and found stuff with ease. it was only a week ago that my world opened up (budam, tsh) and i found 2 clusters. i then had to wake up at 4 in the morning to see venus and jupiter, and wow, my god, it was really something, i could see the moons and the stripes of Jupiter. i want to go to country to see stuff better (hopefully you understand that technical language) all in all, if your thinking of getting it, get it. i… love… it… … … ...
