Refractor telescopes are one of the first telescopes to be put into the commercial market and are still one of the most popular telescope makes today. Designed with lenses (rather than mirrors), these telescopes can be used on land and for the night sky. The Skywatcher SW102 Terrestrial Refractor Telescope is a 102mm diameter tube, which is uniquely sized for exceptional light gathering power, offering brighter and better resolution views.
In the box, you get a 10mm and 25mm eyepiece, which covers a good range of closeup and wide field views - making this telescope good for enjoying the star fields or nebula. If you are trying to spot ships or whales at the distance, this telescope picks out detail easily. With it's easy to use panning handles, you can even follow activity comfortably.
A Perfect blend of Style and Glass Quality
The SW102 is designed with a classic black and white exterior, ideal as a statement feature in the home. At the same time, this 500mm focal length tube is short enough that is doesn't dominate too much space in your living area. Fitted with achromatic glass for good edge-to-edge viewing, this telescope is a great balance of style and quality.
