Skywatcher 127mm (5″) F/1500 Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope with Equatorial Motorized EQ3 GoTo Mount
The optics: This compact and powerful Sky-Watcher Maksutov Cassegrain telescope with its high-resolution multi-coated optics is suitable at medium to high resolution for discovering surface details on the moon as well as for observing planets and double stars, but it also shows some brighter deep sky objects. In addition, it can also be used very well for nature observation. Mount: Sky-Watcher offers a simple solution for hobby astronomers who want to place their small telescope on a convenient computer-controlled mount, but do not want to use a heavy HEQ5 or EQ6 mount. The EQ3 Pro SynScan™ mount uses the same GoTo system used in the HEQ5 and EQ6 Pro SynScan™ mount. It allows the user to set any object or start a guided tour of the night sky with just a push of a button. The extensive database contains over 42,900 objects in the night sky. The Sky-Watcher EQ3 Pro SynScan™ mount is the perfect instrument for beginners in visual observation or photography to enjoy the new hobby with minimal setup effort and without already knowing the sky perfectly. The mount comes with an aluminum tripod. Please note: The motor control box (seen to the left of the hand control box in the picture) is designed to attach to a tripod with 1.75″ stainless steel legs. You can, however, attach them with Velcro or similar.
