About the Sky-Watcher Equinox 100 - 100mm Refractor Telescope OTA...
The SkyWatcher Equinox 100 Refractor Telescope departs slightly from the other refractors in this series. It is designed primarily as a visual instrument for high-power, high-resolution applications. The Equinox 100 Sky-Watcher Telescope features a beautifully corrected ED doublet with a focal length of 900 mm. It provides outstanding views of solar system objects and of brighter DSOs, and can split even the tightest doubles with ease. For added fun, attach a solar system video camera along with a 2" ED 2x Barlow and treat yourself to stunning real-time views of Earth'''s nearest neighbors!
For experienced observers and novices alike, the SkyWatcher Equinox 100 delivers remarkable and memorable views. It has the perfect configuration of aperture, focal length and focal ratio to make it a general-purpose Sky-Watcher Telescope that can be used for everything from widefield viewing to high-power planetary imaging. It may be the only Sky-Watcher Telescope you will ever need, and one of the finest you will ever look through in this aperture class.
Each air-to-glass lens surface incorporated into the SkyWatcher Equinox 100 Refractor Telescope has exotic anti-reflection metallic coatings applied to ensure optimum light through-put of approaching 99.5%. The proprietary Sky-Watcher Telescope Metallic High-Transmission Coatings (MHC) are the finest photon anti-rejection coatings in their class.
Whatever your application, we'''re sure that the SkyWatcher Equinox 100 Refractor Telescope will meet and exceed your most demanding performance requirements with their superior mechanics, high portability and razor-sharp colour-free optics.
