The Sky-Watcher Heritage-76 has been specially designed to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy (IYA) and the 400th Anniversary of Galileo’s first telescope. This is not only a highly functional precision optical instrument but also a beautiful collector’s piece, desk or shelf ornament, and ideal gift.
The compact Heritage-100P is a lightweight and convenient grab-and-go scope. With its quality 100mm f/4 parabolic optics, it can be used to view the Moon and bright planets and also has enough light gathering for the observation of star clusters, bright galaxies and nebulae.
These instruments offer an incredible aperture-to-price ratio. The Dobsonian mount, popularized by John Dobson in the late 1970's, is a very simple but effective method of mounting a Newtonian Reflector, based on the alt-azimuth principle.
The Skyliner 200’s flat-packed base is very easy to build and set up, and comes with excellent instructions….The optics were sharp across 80% of the 1 degree field of view….We were very pleased with the appearance of all the test objects
One of our most popular Dobsonian telescopes because it is generally considered to be the largest aperture solid tube Dobsonian that can still be comfortably setup and moved around the garden single-handed.
