Home Telescopes SkyWatcher Telescopes SkyWatcher SynScan AZ Goto SkyWatcher Skymax 127 SynScan AZ GOTO Telescope
Large aperture 127mm Maksutov optics on a fully computerised mount offering accurate goto technology in a complete ready to use system. Offering views of the Planets that rival that of ultra expensive Apo refractors this instrument really is for many the ultimate in portable quality optics. The long (1500mm) focal length allows the Skymax 127 to provide high magnification with standard eyepieces without having to resort to using a Barlow lens or uncomfortable short focal length eyepieces.
The exciting Sky-Watcher SynScan Alt-Azimuth GoTo Mount is a precision engineered instrument that will allow you to easily find and enjoy viewing night sky treasures, such as Planets, Nebulae, Star Clusters, Galaxies and much more. The SynScan AZ hand control allows you point your telescope at a specific object, or even tour the night sky at the touch of a button!! The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,900+ objects. Includes a x2 Deluxe Barlow Lens with T thread doubling the power of the supplied eyepieces!Large high resolution Maksutov Cassegrain optics with goto technology at a very special price"Verdict A powerful instrument with goodlight-gathering power."The Sunday Times"This is one of the jewels in the Sky-Watchers crown.

SkyWatcher Skymax 127 SynScan AZ GOTO A lot of kit for the money but, even with the GOTO feature, it takes a bit of setting up. Not had too many clear skies since making this purchase just a few weeks ago, but looking good for the future. Recommend this telescope. (23/01/2018) Rob H. - Torbay
A great bit of kit. Optically superb for the price I had to wait 5 days for some viewing conditions. Last night 08/05/2017 was great. The Skymax was relatively easy to set up,I paired the finder scope with the main tube and off I went to see the Moon in all it's glory and in conjunction with Jupiter along with 4 of it's moons absolutely magnificent!

Outstanding optics and features Recommended the skywatcher brand by a colleague at work so I phoned for advice and the 127mm synscan was the one with the best optics in the range. The views are simply awesome, from the moon and beyond the views are clear and sharp. The synscan system is accurate and tracks automatically - amazing. (01/02/2017) P STANWICK - NAVESTOCK
