    Sky-Watcher 120/1000 EQ5 Refractor Telescope with Steel Tripod

    The Skywatcher 120/1000 Refractor is another premium refractor OTA from Skywatcher. It boasts a 120mm aperture and a focal length of 1000m, giving a focal ratio at f/8.33. Perfectly suited for viewing deep space objects, enhanced surface details of the moon and planets, and other interesting objects in the night sky.

    Sky-Watcher EQ5 mount delivers the precision and stability you need for serious stargazing. The premium steel 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. It is a mount that is perfectly suited for telescopes in the small to medium weight category.
