    SkyWatcher 114/900 EQ Reflector Telescope w/ Motor Drive

    See the giant planets such as Jupiter and Saturn and their moons, nebulae and clusters. The SkyWatcher 114mm Reflector Telescope SW450 is a fantastic telescope for the beginning amateur astronomer. Users of this telescope get a great experience of watching the night sky without needing to pay high up front costs associated with more expensive telescopes.

    The SkyWatcher SW450 Reflector Telescope has a 114mm (4½") objective diameter that captures a nice amount of light for viewing the night sky. It also has a 900mm focal length with smooth 31.7mm rack and pinion focuser. A longer focal length allows for great views of many celestial objects particularly in dark sky environments.

    This telescope also has the benefits of gathering 125% more light than a 76mm telescope and 165% more than a 70mm refractor.

    All Sky-Watcher reflectors are overcoated with silicon dioxide for more durability and 5 years warranty.

    This telescope also comes with a motor drive. The addition of the motor drive feature allows you to easily manoeuvre your telescope using a remote control. This gives greater accuracy in following stars compared to using manual movements.

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