|Description:||Prepare to be amazed with our newly designed SkyView Pro 8 EQ reflector. It's got a full 8" (203mm) parabolic primary mirror, which gathers 73% more light than a 6". You won't have to call it a night once you've observed the Messier Catalog because there's a host of other deep-sky objects within reach of this scope! And if you're into the Moon and planets, SkyView Pro 8's 1000mm focal length (f/5) gives you the appropriate image scale to resolve the finest detail. |
The tube features a 2" aluminum rack-and-pinion focuser with a 1.25" insert, which affords you a limitless choice of optional eyepieces. The secondary mirror is securely mounted in a sturdy 4-vane holder. A 6x30 finder scope helps you locate faint deep-sky objects.
The stalwart SkyView Pro EQ mount features enclosed 360ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ° worm gears and steel tube tripod legs. This mount is just as sturdy as the venerable Japanese mounts in its class, but at half the price! One year limited warranty.
