    Description

    SkyWatcher 150/750 EQ5 Reflector Telescope w/ Steel Tripod

    The SkyWatcher 150/750 EQ5 Telescope w/ Steel Tripod features superior optical design and a significantly large 150mm aperture that delivers clear, crisp images during stargazing. This high value telescope is packed with features you would only normally find in the top-end range. The telescope setup comes with an EQ5 mount for stabilized mounting and large manual slow-motion controls so that you are ready for some serious stargazing.

    The Reflector Advantage
    Reflector telescopes are one of the most cost effective designs available on the market today. It uses multiple precision mirrors to focus and magnify images, making it more cost-efficient to produce as compared to large heavier lens, keeping your maintenance cost low. This model uses a Paraboloidal primary mirror and a secondary mirror that is designed to reduce diffraction spikes and light loss.

    Imaging Power in a Portable Package
    The 150mm aperture and enhanced light gathering capabilities of this telescope’s design puts it squarely within the premium products zone - something Veterans would clearly love to use. However, Skywatcher has been able to pack in all the features you would expect and price it well within the reach of beginner stargazers.

    Stable and Vibration Resistant Platform
    The premium aluminum tubes used in the tripod ensure that you get a sturdy platform for your imaging device. As long as you stay within the prescribed payload, you’ll get the best performance from this mount. The rigidity of the aluminum tubes not only provides stability but also dampen tiny vibrations from external sources. These tiny vibrations are enough to interfere with observations at high magnifications.

    Precise Controls
    The internal gears of the EQ5 mount are manufactured to very strict tolerances. This ensures you get the smoothest and most precise controls compared to other mounts in the same class. You have full control of both latitude and longitude and each has a scale that’s listed in micrometers. There is also an aluminum setting circle and a bubble level which completes all the indicators needed to determine the mount’s position and level.
