"I have used a great number of telescopes; some are good, some mediocre and some bad. To me the Sky-Watcher range of instruments are very good indeed, and suited to amateurs of all kinds – and they are not priced out of the market! Excellent value. Use them and enjoy them."Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRS (1923 to 2012)
"Having tested and reviewed a wide range of astronomical telescopes over the last couple of decades, for me there's one manufacturer that's risen above the rest in terms of delivering a coherent range of uncompromising, well-conceived designs, embodying consistently good optics and sensibly engineered mounts at very competitive prices — that's Sky-Watcher!!"Ade Ashford BScAde Ashford has tested and reviewed astronomical equipment in a professional capacity for several publications, including Sky & Telescope, Astronomy Now & BBC Sky At Night Magazine.

For a young child, the Infinity-76P Parabolic Reflector Telescope would make an ideal first telescope gift to take their first steps into astronomy. The new Auto-Tracking Series motorised telescope models are both ideal for the beginner as well as those who would like a telescope that can be also for terrestrial daytime use. The unique and ultra-portable range of Tabletop Telescopes with their carrying cases are ideal for use on camping trips and trips overseas etc. Our best-selling range of Skyhawk & Explorer Newtonian Reflectors and Skyliner Dobsonian telescope models offer excellent all-round performance on all types of astronomical object, and the best aperture-to-price ratio (more precious light gathering for a given price). The compact, portable, yet high-power Skymax Maksutov-Cassegrain and Skymax PRO-Series telescope models excel for the detailed viewing of planets. They also provide upright images, making them useful also for daytime long-range terrestrial observations. The classical Mercury, Capricorn & Evostarrange of long-tube refractors provide excellent results when viewing the planets. The range of Startravel short-tube refractors are more suited to viewing deep-sky objects and wide field astrophotography, with some excellent results. Their short focal ratios also make them ideal for daytime terrestrial use and as telephoto lenses for photographic use.
