    Description



    SkyWatcher StarTravel 102/500 AZ3 Refractor Telescope

    The Skywatcher 1025 AZ3 is a 102mm Achromatic Refractor Telescope that come with short focal length of 500mm. This noticeable shorter tube compare to other telescopes of the same class allows it to deliver a wider field of view and faster exposure times. This is essential and preferable for people who wishes to do some wide-field astrophotography.

    Premium Astronomy and Terrestrial Observation
    Sky-Watcher 1025 Refractor Telescope is the well proven performer in value for views of comets, star fields, star clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies & planets, the Moon and the Sun (with proper safety filtering!). Supplied with the sturdy and easy to use AZ3 Alt-Azimuth mount, which provides excellent stability and precise control, via its slow motion cables, on both the horizontal (azimuth) and vertical (altitude) axes, this Sky Watcher 1025AZ3 is also used as Daytime terrestrial Telescopes

    Well Suited for Photography & Travelling
    The shorter focal length helps the telescope take better photos as well as giving you a shorter telescope that is easy to pack and carry. These features are essential for a stargazer or astrophotographer who is always on a run!

    The Refractor Advantage
    Since a refractor does not use mirrors to view objects, you get a generally brighter image and a correct, right side up image is displayed. This makes it usable for viewing terrestrial objects.

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

    Excellent Beginner Telescope - Review by
    Overall Score

    As a first telescope this was everything I was after. The lens supplied gave me the chance to see the moon up close during the new moon phase 19th July.

    I could clearly see the crescent shape of Venus. I'm still chasing Jupiter and waiting for the full moon on the 31st July.

    Very easy to assemble.

    Very Quick Delivery and professionally packaged.

    I'm now saving for the SkyWatcher filter and lens kit of discover what else I can find.

    I would recommend this to anyone starting in Astrophotography.

    Having never owned anything like this previously we were a little perplexed when we first attempted to put it together and were disappointed that we could see very little through the lenses. Fortunately our teenage son was able to look at the manual and put right where we went wrong. We now love the product and find it perfect what what we wanted it for. I am sure our whole family will have years of enjoyment from this.

    Having never owned anything like this before we were a little perplexed when we tried to put it together and had the lenses totally wrong. Fortunately our teenage son was able to look at the instruction booklet and tell us exactly what we had done wrong. Now we all love the product. It is exactly what we wanted and perfect for what we intended it for. I think the whole family will have years of enjoyment out of this product.

    This is a great telescope for little money. I was hoping it was a little more powerful. Clear and shape viewing. Shipment was fast just two business days.
