Description

The Saxon 15012EQ5 Refractor Telescope is another high powered stargazing instrument from Saxon. It offers a whopping 150mm aperture size which allows you to view the Moon and the planets in astounding detail. It also delivers bright and crisp views of the popular deep space objects.

High Powered Refractor Telescope
The classic refractor design provides advantages that are unique to it. Aside from the power and the sharper images, you can also use a refractor for viewing terrestrial objects. There is a certain quality in the observed images that can only be delivered by a refractor telescope. It’s usually the first choice of new and intermediate hobbyists.

Enhanced Optical Features
Multi-coated optics enhance a telescope’s viewing capabilities. The 15012EQ5 has 4-phase multi-coated optics that enables it to produce higher quality images. The images that you see are brighter, crisper and color corrected. They have higher contrast than images from telescopes of the same power which don’t use premium coatings. Aside from improving your ability to view celestial objects with the naked eye, it also provides a distinct advantage to astrophotographers.

Delivering Awesome Views
Much has been said about the image quality produced by the Saxon 15012EQ5 Refractor Telescope , but what can you really see? You’ll see the moon’s surfaces in dramatic high detail; our neighboring planets will have even more features available – the Cassini division on Saturn, the changing colors of Mars, and some of the farther outer planets are visible too; the stars and constellations will look even more clearer while the nearer galaxies and nebulas hint at their true shapes.

*Please note, the image through all finder scopes will be upside down.
