About this product

The Sky-Watcher 102/500 AZ5 is a 102mm Achromatic Refractor Telescope that comes with a short focal length of 500mm. This noticeably shorter tube compared to other telescopes of the same class allows it to deliver a wider field of view with standard eyepieces. The compressed length of the telescope makes it portable and easy to store

Premium Astronomy and Terrestrial Observation
Sky-Watcher 102/500 refractor telescope is the well-proven performer in value for views of comets, star fields, star clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies & planets, the Moon and the Sun (with proper safety filtering!). Supplied with the sturdy and easy to use AZ5 alt-azimuth mount, which provides excellent stability and precise control, via its fine tracking adjustment knobs, on both the horizontal (azimuth) and vertical (altitude) axes, this Sky-Watcher 102/500 AZ5 is also used as a daytime terrestrial telescope.

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 provided.

Great refractor

Metal optical tube, reasonable optics, I would suggest buying a Barlow lens and a solar filter to make it more versatile . Made astronomy more accessible to me with the demands of my busy schedule due to the minimal setup time. The only downside is the finder scope.
