Home Telescopes SkyWatcher Telescopes SkyWatcher Explorer Pro SynScan Telescopes SkyWatcher Explorer 150PL EQ3 PRO Telescope
A superb 150mm long focus reflector supplied on the EQ3 PRO SynScan computerised equatorial mount complete and ready to use. With the longer focal ratio of this optical system the 150PL allows the observer to use higher magnifications for even more detailed study of celestial objects. With superior parabolic mirrors the optical quality of this instrument is superb. The Sky-Watcher EXPLORER range are standard Newtonian reflectors of excellent quality and versatility, ranging in aperture from a respectable 130mm to an incredible light-gulping 300mm aperture, catering for astronomers of all levels. Whether your interest is Deep-Sky, the Moon and Planets, or a combination of both, the EXPLORER range offers excellent all round Diffraction-Limited performance.
SKY-WATCHER DELUXE MIRROR COATINGSMost reflectors today usually have a coat of aluminium as the mirror surface and then an overcoat of silicon monoxide or silicon dioxide to protect it. Silicon dioxide produces a much more durable coat than silicon monoxide but requires specialized equipment to apply it and is therefore more expensive. Protection is needed, because in most reflectors, the mirror is open to the elements and deterioration of the reflective layer reduces the resolution of the telescope. ALL Sky-Watcher reflectors are Multi-Coated with Silicon Dioxide as standard for Optimum Durability and Long Term Performance.
