Home Telescopes Telescopes for Beginners Beginner Telescopes under 150 pounds SkyWatcher Skyhawk 114 Catadioptric Telescope
The Sky-Watcher SKYHAWK models feature shorter, more compact telescope tube lengths resulting in lighter-weight telescopes of excellent convenience and portability. They are a particularly good choice of instrument for keen beginners to astronomy, wanting larger aperture and increased performance at a relatively low cost. This catadioptric version has a longer 1000mm focal length so achieving higher magnifications than standard shorter focal length models.
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.
