About this product

  • Fully Multi-Coated 102mm Achromatic Lens
  • Go-To Alt-Azimuth Mount
  • A Simple yet Efficient Mount For Telescopes or Cameras
  • Time-Lapse Function
  • 3 Years Sky-Watcher Limited Warranty

The Sky-Watcher 102/500 Star Discovery is a fully automatic telescope ideal for beginners and those who want to get straight to observing. Aligning the mount takes mere minutes with the Bright Object alignment mode, and the computerised SynScan system is the ultimate upgrade that allows automatic pointing and tracking of more than 42,000 object in the sky! This means less time spent finding a faint nebula or a distant planet and more time to enjoy observing. Astronomy has never been so easy!

The Star Discovery mount is the upgrade of the Star Explorer, featuring the Freedom Find dual encoder technology. Once aligned, the telescope can be manually pointed anywhere in the sky without losing alignment, giving the user enormous freedom, convenience and flexibility during the observations.

The Refractor Advantage
Images viewed through a refractor telescope have a classic quality that other telescope designs lack. Since a refractor does not use mirrors to view objects, you get a generally sharper image. Images are also displayed without the secondary mirror shadow, making it suitable for terrestrial viewing when used with a 45ø erecting image diagonal or an erecting tube.
