  • 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)

"Overall the scope and mount package was a pleasure to use, it's simple to assemble and easy to get to grips with, while its optical system gives good views of popular targets....The Explorer-130PS gets a massive thumbs up from us!"  ALL ABOUT SPACE MAGAZINE
