Optical performance is not the only benefit to be gained from this 6" diameter telescope, mechanically the equatorial mount provides a stable platform for such a powerful instrument. The observer can easily swing the tube to target every any observable celestial object user to target the telescope and then use the slow motion control to keep the object in the eyepiece.
All Newton Telescopes have the focussing drawtube on the side of the optical tube giving a comfortable viewing position while observing celestial bodies. An ideal introduction to the exploration of the planets within our solar system and beyond.
