If you've always wondered about the details of the moon and love looking into the wide star fields, you can do that to great satisfaction with the Saxon F1149EQ Reflector Telescope! This scope offers enhanced views of sky objects with its fully coated glass that eliminates fringing and retains color fidelity. 

The Saxon F1149EQ Reflector Telescope is a great beginner scope. For anyone taking their first step into astronomy, this scope is built with an 114mm aperture, 900mm focal length (f/8). 4.5" aluminised & overcoated mirror, 5x24 finderscope, equatorial mount. With an equatorial mount you learn to scan the sky according to how the equator is shaped - challenging and exciting at the same time! 

Also included with the F1149EQ is smooth rack and pinion focuser, three Super 1.25" eyepieces, 1.5x erecting lens for terrestrial use, aluminium tripod. Expect 125% more light with this scope than a than 76mm tube and 165% more light than 70mm scopes. This is a good beginner's reflector, suitable for Moon, planets and many deep-sky objects. Comes with colour printed Moon & Solar system chart.

I bought the saxon 1149EQ telescope and I love it so far!

I'll be upgrading the finderscope and eyepieces as the ones supplied simply don't do the beautiful night sky any justice!

I bought this a few days ago I haven't had the time to use it much. Last night I took it out for a viewing and it was great! I can't wait to go up to Queensland for the eclipse!
