Telescope Description


The Sky-Watcher 1145 EQ1 is well known for its quality parabolic optical system. This particular scope offers competitive optics and minimal central obstruction. Not only do you see more, you can be ensured of finer and brighter visuals.
                                      
This telescope is suitable for anyone starting out in Deep-Sky Observation and Astrophotography. However the seasoned sky viewer will also appreciate the large aperture in the scope, and the superior images this scope offers (minus a hefty price tag!).
 
It is an ideal model for introduction to the world of amateur astronomy, and is often chosen as the first telescope in the family. 
 
The Sky-Watcher 1145 EQ1 aperture of 114mm collects enough light to reveal a wealth of celestial objects and capturers 125% more light than a 76mm and 165% more than a 70mm refractor. The short focal length of 500mm offers a large field of view, which is an important attribute for amateur observations. This makes it easy to direct the telescope at the object and follow.
It has aluminized and overcoated mirrors, diffraction-limited secondary mirror support and a paraboloidal (parabolic) primary mirror.
 
 
Recommended Usage - Viewing Galaxies/Stars, Nebulae, the Moon, Other Planets
 
* Sky-Watcher 5 Years Limited Warranty*
