    Description




    SkyWatcher 150/750 EQ3 Reflector Telescope with Aluminium Tripod

    The Skywatcher 150mm EQ3 Reflector Telescope with Aluminium Tripod is an excellent reflector telescope for beginners and hobbyists alike. Its impressive 150mm aperture is excellent to gather more light into the telescope, and the scope will work well in revealing deep sky luminaries such as nebulae and galaxies.

    At 150mm, the telescope has 33% more light gathering power than a 130mm telescope, and 73% more light than 114mm, making it an excellent scope for beginners who want something just a bit more powerful. Its sturdy EQ3 Equatorial mount makes it easy to follow a star as it moves through the night sky, giving you a comfortable and highly enjoyable viewing experience.

    The Skywatcher 150mm EQ3 Reflector Telescope is excellent for both beginners and intermediate astronomers. You can carry on using this telescope for years to come thanks to its sturdy construction and great quality. The Skywatcher 150mm EQ3 Reflector Telescope is an excellent choice for those looking to upgrade from a smaller telescope or for hobbyists wanting an entry level advanced telescope.

    This telescope arrived at my door 2 days after purchase, set it up in a night and it gives beautiful crisp images and a really solid tripod with great tracking mechanisms.

    Highly recommend as first scope.

    before i got the skywatcher i had what i thought was a good quality telescope. i was happy with it but my grand-daughter managed to topple it over and broke both tri-pod and the telescope. After a while i invested in my skywatcher. it cost me 150 more than the broken one. upon arrival i was extremely impressed with the build quality, the sturdiness of the tri-pod and just about everything else. the spotter scope is very easy to use and the telescope picks up so much more. i am well chuffed with the Skywatcher 150 EQ3 and so will you too.

    Just received this telescope a few days ago and was very impressed with the delivery time. Set up was quite simple and didn't take very long, it appears to be quite sturdy and well built. Since setting it up I've used it a few times now and am very impressed and am eager to get this to some dark skies. This telescope is quite portable and not overly heavy even with the mount attached and can be moved without too much difficulty.

    Overall it is good value and a good start for a beginner, however you may want to purchase additional eyepieces.
