Skywatcher Startravel 150 Optical Tube Assembly
Zoom  Zoom

The compact Sky-Watcher STARTRAVEL series are two-element, air-spaced, multi-coated objective, achromatic refractors, and are well proven performers for “Rich-Field” views of star fields, clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies, planets, the Moon and, the Sun (with correct safety filtering!), as well as giving excellent terrestrial views. These wide-field short-tube telescopes are also highly portable. They also are popular for use as guide scopes on larger telescopes. All models excel as fixed aperture lenses for both Astrophotography and terrestrial photography. Their “fast” focal ratios combined with today’s high-speed films make them useful for capturing lunar and solar eclipses as well as nature photographs. Tube material: Aluminium

I have owned a 6" Newtonian,a 120 sky watcher refractor and now the 150 refractor. Been an amateur astronomer for 38 years. Just a bit of background.
The 150 is an amazing telescope, I needed a scope that didn't need a permanent set up because of light pollution but still wanted great performance,this scope does all of that. The reports I read claimed dubious CA when looking at planetary bodies or the moon. Whilst I would admit there is a tiny amount present I cured that with the Baader fringe killer. No more CA! I would recommend this scope very highly for portability and performance, don't let the f/5 put you off planetary work,use a 2.3mm eyepiece to get what you need. However I mostly use research grade orthoscopics from 4mm to 12mm. I would like to say thank you to the staff at Rother Valley Optics for all their help, I have also recommended them to my other friends because of my dealings with them. Honest advice and they don't over sell. A great bunch of guys. Thank you.
