  • 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.

"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."
BBC Sky At Night Magazine (Nov 2009)
