The 254/1200mm Sky-Watcher Newtonian reflector is a telescope for the serious amateur astronomer. The scope can be used with excellent results for both visual and imaging purposes. Visually stars down to magnitude 15 can be seen and shows details in galaxies and nebulae. The high quality optics can be used for lunar and planetary photography as well and can show incredible details of the surfaces. The 254mm main mirror has a theoretical resolving power less than 0.5".
Recommended for astrophotography as well. The 2" Crayford focuser is excellent together with the F/4.7 mirror while the 1200mm focal length resolves fine details in deep sky objects. The 2" focuser can accept many photographic accessories (like coma corrector, etc).
We highly recommend the Skywatcher Wi-Fi unit (SynScanWifi), with which you can control your telescope via smartphone or tablet. Just plug the Wi-Fi unit into the hand controller slot and download the free App (Android or iOS) - it is ready to use.
