Skywatcher 150/1200 F8 newton (single speed focuser)

A very good telescope for beginners and a must for experienced amateur astronomers!

This Newtonian reflecting telescope collects so much light with its generous 150mm diameter that distant DSOs such as the Ring Nebula in Lyra or the Dumbbell Nebula become beautifully visible and globular clusters, such as M13, resolve into a multitude of individual stars at their edges.Planetary observing provides rich detail in images of Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mars. The f8 focal ratio helps make this reflector a real all-rounder suitable for both deep sky and planetary observing. The light gathering capacity of the150 is 460 times greater than with the naked eye alone.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • compact, portable OTA
  • good value for money

The OTA can simply be set onto a parallactic mount.

The tube ring clamps and prism rail are already on the tube, allowing mounting in just a few seconds.

The more stable the mount, the more securely the OTA sits and the less vibration; we therefore recommend an NEQ-3 or NEQ-5 mount (or larger).

A small secondary mirror with thin supports allows the telescope to provide high-contrast observing.
