This Sky-Watcher 102mm (4″) f/5 telescope is a two-element, air-spaced, fully multi-coated objective, achromatic refractor, which can give exciting “rich field” astronomical views. It can provide excellent vistas of star fields, clusters, nebulae, galaxies, planets, the Moon and (with correct filtering or by projection) the Sun. Crisp images at a reasonable price make it an excellent beginner’s “first telescope” or a great traveling telescope for a more advanced observer. Similar to the popular 80mm f/5 refractor, this larger aperture model has more light collecting power at the same focal ratio and accepts 2″ diagonals for awesome wide field views, while only a small amount to chromatic aberration and weight. This telescope also performs well as a fixed aperture, 510mm lens for both terrestrial and astrophotography.
Sky-Watcher AZ SynScan Mount is a precision engineered instrument that will allow you to easily find and enjoy viewing night sky objects: planets, nebulae, star clusters, and galaxies.

The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,900+ objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can easily master its variety of features in a few observing sessions.
