The 2" Crayford focuser allows the use of powerful professional 2" eyepieces, together with the rather short focal length of the telescope this is very helpful for wide field observations. Of course you can also use 1.25" accessories, the necessary adapter is included. Two eyepieces are included, a Barium 10 and 25mm ones delivering 30x and 75x magnification.
The Newtonian is also prepared for astrophotography. The focuser can take suitable coma correctors and you will be able to focus with common cameras, like DSLR, but also astrocameras without any problems.
♦ Powerful diffraction limited parabolic mirror
♦ Stable adjustment due to robust metal cells of the main and secondary mirror
♦ Improved 2" metal focuser - with 2", M54 female, T2 male and 1.25" connection
♦ M54 direct connection at the focuser - you get into focus with a reflex camera, without vignetting
♦ High-contrast image due to thin secondary spider vanes
♦ Helpful 6x30 finder scope for easy finding of objects
♦ Direct camera connection for parallel photography to the telescope (star field photography)
♦ High speed (f/5) - very practical for astrophotography
♦ A pronounced all-rounder that allows both wide-field observations and observations at high magnification and is even suitable for astrophotography.
This equatorial mount from Skywatcher is very well suited for mobile use, but also a solid base for astrophotography. With suitable drives you can successfully take pictures of the moon, planets, nebulae and galaxies. For visual use, manual fine adjustment using the supplied flexible shafts is sufficient.
