Let the computerised system take you on a tour of the night sky and be amazed by the clear and sharp visuals that the Star Discovery range has to offer. With a 127mm aperture and a long focal length of 1500mm this scope will perform well for objects near to us such as solar system planets, with deep-sky observations within reach as well. The lenses are multi-coated achromatic in design and with the SynScan database you can be assured that you will never look up at the sky and feel lost again.  Offering a focal ratio of f/12 this Sky-Watcher telescope is fast and smooth, suitable for anyone looking to start their astronomical journey through the solar system planets. Jupiter and Saturn will be bright and clear and looking at the lunar surface will show bright and crisp visuals of the finer details of our nearest neighbour.
