More about the product

Imaging faint objects require long exposure times. The exposure times can be reduced by using faster telescopes, like this Quattro.

The Sky-Watcher Quattro 10S is a premium quality imaging Newtonian with a wide field of illumination and fast f4 focal-ratios. It has paraboloidal primary mirror made of low thermal expansion glass resulting in shorter cool-down times. The tube is equipped with knife-edge ray traced baffles for maximum image contrast. A 2" dual speed Crayford focuser helps for precise focus adjustment.

The tube length of the telescope is also shorter, meaning that the scope is easier to handle and transport, and it is also more stable on a given mount than a longer tube model.

A comacorrector is a recommended accessory for astrophotography, we recommend the SkyWatcher's aplanatic F/4 coma corrector, which has really good quality.

This scope is an excellent instrument for visual observing too, especially for deep-sky oobjects,  but can be used with high magnifications as well.

Note that the mount is not included.

For visual use the minimum recommented mount is an EQ5 or AZ-EQ5, while for astrophotography the minimum mount is one of the EQ6 models are recommended.

Pros

Méretre, tömegre pont akkora amivel az ember még kényelmesen kitelepül esténként. Mechanikai minőség szempontjából számomra megfelelő, de minimális jusztírra általában szükség van. F/4-nél ez amúgy se ritka dolog, de lézeressel 1 perces művelet az egész. A kihuzata nagyon erős, egy 1 kilós ccd-t is simán elbír és megtart. A fókuszt is szépen tartja és a tükör is hibátlan.

Cons

Igazából nem nagyon van, talán a keresőnek a rőgzítésére már kitalálhatnának valami masszívabb megoldást :) Apróság, nem is befolyásolja az értékelésemet.

Summary

Teljesen elégedett vagyok vele. Egy 250/1200-est acél tubust cseréltem le rá, mert a használata kényelmetlen volt. Furcsa, hogy az az 1-2 kiló és a rövidebb tubus mennyivel kényelmesebb használatot biztosít. Csak ajánlani tudom.
