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 12S is a high power 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.

Thetube 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 (300/1500) 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 use for high resolution Moon and planetary observation as well.

Note that the mount is not included. Minimum mount is one of the EQ6 models are required.

Pros

Kezdő távcsőnek vettem, de hamar rájöttem, hogy még sokáig eltart míg végére jutok a adottságai teljes kihasználásához. EQ 6 R Pro mechanikán kitűnően működik, könnyen beállítható. Kisebb a méretéből adódó szükséges kényelmi fejlesztéseket könnyen tudtam megvalósítani, magam felszerelni. Igen kis összegből, a főtükör hütését 3 db szűrőbetéttel ellátott kis ventilátorral rezgésmentesen sikerűlt megoldani. Kezdőknek ajánlom a sztárpointer keresőt a betanítás egyszerűsítése végett.

Cons

Hátránya a méretéből fakad, kissé súlyos. A betekintéshez egy stabil két fokú fellépőt kell használni meredekebb állásnál. Kissé sok helyet foglal.

Summary

Remek élményeket adott, minden alkalommal és a méretből adódó kényelmetlenség hamar megoldható, illetve megtanulható és utána óriási a kihasználhatósága mind kémlelésre, vagy fotózásra.
