More about the product

The Sky-Watcher 102/500 refracting telescope has a Fraunhofer-type objective with 2 lens element. The F/5 focal ratio results in a short tube and compact size. The objective lens is fully multi coated and provides excellent and distortion free view. The scope is intented to use mainly for astronomical purposes, especially when observing large and faint objects, but of course can be used to observe Moons and planets in the magnification range of 15-200x. The rack and pinion focuser is made of metal and accepts 2" eyepieces and accessories. At 15x magnification the view of view is large, over 4,5 degrees, and is ideal for North America, Pelican-, Andromeda or Veil-nebula.

Do you know that the SynScan Version 4 hand controller is able to fully drive the huge EQ8 mount?
The patented Freedom Find (dual-encoder) technology allows the telescope to be moved manually whenever the user wishes - but with no need for re-alignment!”
The very same SynScan Version 4 hand controller is used on the Star Discovery mount. The SynScan Version 4 handset can drive the Sky Discovery mount to any object selected from its huge 42000+ object database, including objects from Messier, IC, NGC and Caldwell catalogs, the planets, named stars, double stars, variable stars and even user-defined objects like new comets.
The Star Discovery mount includes digital encoders and the patented “Freedom Find TM” technology like the big Sky-Watcher EQ8 mount. After moving to a new object the telescope will automatically begin to track the new object accurately. No re-setup is required in one observing session.

For the GoTo version we highly recommend the Skywatcher Wi-Fi unit (SynScanWifi), with which you can control your telescope via smartphone or tablet. Just plug the Wi-Fi unit into the hand controller slot and download the free App (Android or iOS) - it is ready to use.
