Sky-Watcher PRO-Series Telescopes

  • Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRS"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)
  • Ade Ashford Says..."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.

Telescopes for Astronomy: Sky-Watcher PRO-Series

Sky-Watcher PRO-Series astronomical telescopes and Go-To Mountings have been specially developed to meet the needs of the most discerning and critical advanced astronomers.

Sky-Watcher PRO-Series products are manufactured to extremely high levels of optical and mechanical precision, using the finest materials and undergoing very strict quality control procedures and testing by specially assigned technicians, to ensure the highest standards of quality and performance are consistently maintained.

The Skymax PRO Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope models excel for detailed, high-power observations of the Moon, planets and double stars. They employ super-high contrast optical systems, utilising high-transmission multi-coatings on all optical surfaces, for optimum optical performance. The quality of each telescope is monitored by means of a Ronchi Test and Artificial Star Test. No effort is spared to reach optimal optical quality.

The state-of-the-art Skywatcher PRO-Series Evostar & Equinox ED Apochromatic Refractors provide ultimate colour-corrected performance for visual planetary and deep-sky observations and CCD imaging. The Equinox ED Refractors can also be used as high-performance spotting scopes and telephoto photographic lenses for birdwatching and daytime nature studies. All refractors, used with a star diagonal or erecting prism provide upright images, making them suitable for terrestrial use.

Sky-Watcher PRO-Series telescopes can be purchased as Optical Tube Assemblies only (OTA’s) or complete with our highly acclaimed PRO-Series Go-To Fully Computerised Telescope Mountings which can automatically locate night-sky objects from their database.
