About this product

SkyWatcher 114/900mm EQ1 Reflector Telescope

See the giant planets such as Jupiter and Saturn and their moons, nebulae and clusters. The Sky-Watcher 114/900 EQ1 Reflector Telescope is a fantastic telescope for the beginning amateur astronomer. It has the benefits of gathering 125% more light than a 76mm telescope and 165% more than a 70mm refractor showing better the main details in nebulae and cluster. With a maximum practical magnification of 224x , this Sky-Watcher Telescope will reveal details in Saturns rings, Jupiters bands, the Martian polar ice caps, and the phases of Venus and the moon.

Equatorial Mount Features

The EQ1 is a lightweight equatorial mount, able to compensate for Earths rotation by moving along only one axis. That is a great advantage for high-resolution observation as it is only necessary to turn a single knob whilst tracking an object across the sky. The optional tracking motor can be easily attached to the right ascension axis, allowing comfortable observation without the work of manual tracking.

Aligning an equatorial mount is an easy operation that can be completed in a few minutes. Once the tripod is levelled and the mount is orientated south, incline the mount at the same angle of your local latitude. For example, if you are in Sydney (latitude 33ø South), adjust the mount inclination to 33ø above the horizon using the scale on the EQ1 mount.

Premium Imaging Performance

Sky-Watcher guarantees diffraction limited optics for an outstanding quality. The aluminised primary mirror is aspheric (parabolic profile) offering an optical system free from spherical aberration. The secondary mirror is thin to allow fast cooling and it is held by extra thin spider supports for minimal diffraction spike effects on bright stars and increased contrast.
