Telescope Description


Quality optics, parts and accessories all come together in the saxon 100EQ3 ED Refractor Telescope.
 
This telescope comes with an aperture of 100mm and a focal length of 900mm, giving you amazing lunar and planetary views. Venture a little further and you'll be able to spot star clusters, nebulae and galaxies!
 
The scope's sturdy German Equatorial mount provides a stable platform for you to view the night sky, and the inclusive accessories means you can assemble and start an observing session rightaway.
 
This scope is also great for astrophotography, thanks to its extra-low dispersion (ED) FPL-53 glass which minimises chromatic aberration and provides images that are high in resolution and contrast. Colour fringing around objects is completely eliminated with these optics. If you're not quite sure where to start photographing, why not try the Moon? With a little practice you'll soon be rewarded with crisp, detailed shots which you can show off to family and friends!
