About the Sky-Watcher Esprit 120ED EQ6 SynScan GPS ...
The Sky-Watcher Esprit 120ED Super APO Triplet Refractor Telescope has a doublet field flattener to get a flat field and minimize aberration and distortion. Its Sky-Watcher Telescope M48 adapter for cameras assure larger clear aperture than M42 adapter to reduce halation as much as possible. Connect the triplet and doublet field flattener with a high precision thin thread to keep the optical axis perpendicular to the image.
EQ6 SynScan Sky-Watcher Mounts have been designed for use by novices and experts alike. These mounts, like the one included here with the Sky-Watcher Esprit 120ED EQ6 SynScan GPS, provide extremely high precision tracking and have built in autoguider ports. Even the most demanding experts will be impressed by the capability of these Sky-Watcher Mounts for astrophotography.
For novice users the user-friendly Sky-Watcher Telescope menu allows automatic slewing to over 13,400 objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. The SynScan Hand Control onboard the Sky-Watcher Esprit 120ED EQ6 SynScan GPS also has the ability to connect to a computer via a RS-232 cable. Once the connection has been established between the computer and Sky-Watcher Telescope SynScan Hand Control, many commercially available planetarium software programs can be used to control the EQ6 SynScan Sky-Watcher Mount. They also come with features that advanced astronomers can appreciate.
Don''t forget, we carry plenty of Sky-Watcher Accessories, too! Look for Sky-Watcher Telescope Eyepieces and Sky-Watcher Telescope Filters for visual observers! Astrophotography buffs will appreciate Sky-Watcher Photo Adapters and the Sky-Watcher SynGuider!
