The 120mm Sky-Watcher refractor with 1000mm focal length is a large refracting telescope with contrasty images and can be used to observe many different targets. The 120mm objective lens is a Fraunhofer type objective lens which is fully multi coated on all surfaces. Provides 1" resolution and therefore can show fine details on the surface of the Moon and planets, even in the athmosphere of Jupiter and martian continents. Brighter globular clusters can be resolved to their stars but compact galaxies down to magnitude 12 can be observed. The rack and pinion focuser is 2" in size and accepts many 2" accessories. For example when using a 40mm 2" eyepiece stellar fields and nebulae can be observed in fine details. Using a 2" deepsky filters nebulae can reveal even more details. A 9x50 spring load finderscpoe is included.
The EQ mount on steel tripod is very robust and can be equipped with an adjustable polarscope. RA and declination drive can be also purchased or a GoTo kit can be installed. The EQ-3 mount is recommended for visual use while the more robust EQ-5 can be choice for photographic work.
For solar observations Baaders solar filter is also available.
