SKY-WATCHER ASTRONOMICAL TELESCOPES

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 BSc

Ade Ashford has tested and reviewed astronomical equipment in a professional capacity for several publications, including Sky & Telescope, Astronomy Now & BBC Sky At Night Magazine. He is currently living in New Zealand and is an astronomer at Mt John Observatory, Lake Tekapo.

"In recent years the Sky-Watcher brand has won several plaudits for its well engineered and easy-to-use range of GOTO mounts….Acknowledging the need for a lightweight alt-azimuth GOTO mount to complement the existing range, Sky-Watcher has just introduced six optical tube assemblies on the new SynScan AZ….the mount itself will inevitably invite comparisons with that of Celestron’s SLT range, but apart from an identical tripod and similar castings for the single-arm fork, they are very different mounts. Unlike the tube-specific plastic moulding surrounding the dovetail-mounting block on the SLT, the SynScan AZ has an all-alloy fixture that presents no such restriction, and just about any OTA less than 5kg with a Vixen-style dovetail bar may be used with it….Even without being particularly careful about initial set-up , the mount repeatedly performed well in all GOTO tests. The Moon - a fast moving object subject to a large parallax and always a good test – was consistently positioned in the central part of the field of view, as were the planets. The SynScan AZ swiftly and reliably found every requested random object over the entire visible hemisphere, with a pointing error never exceeding 0.3 degrees….Quieter in operation than the competing Celestron SLT mount and equally capable of external computer control…The new SynScan AZ incorporates all the key features, upgradeable feature set and ease of use as Sky-Watcher’s more expensive GOTO mounts in a sturdy, single-arm fork package, weighing less than 4.5kg (including tripod) and with an impressive targeting accuracy….Highly recommended"

The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,900+ night sky objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. An ideal instrument for the wide-field observation of Deep-Sky objects, such as Nebulae, Star Fields & Clusters and Galaxies. A useful telescope for astrophotography and also for daytime terrestrial use.

"A compact and versatile photo-visual refractor equally at home delivering wide-field, deep-sky views or exploring terrestrial vistas"
Ade Ashford, www.scopetest.com

"We quickly set up and aligned the scope with the help of the instructions....The SynScan Go-To computer efficiently located all the objects we set it to, putting them close to the centre of the wide-field view. The quality of the view was good and the light-grasp of the 4-inch main objective lens gave us good views of all types of object, from galaxies such as M31 to nebulae such as the Dumbell Nebula and star clusters like the Pleiades. Overall, this is a nice package that does the job."
