Ideal for Daytime Terrestrial Observations as well as Deep-Sky Astronomical Use. Sky-Watcher STARTRAVEL telescopes are two-element, air-spaced achromatic refractors, that are well-proven performers for ‘Rich-Field’ views of comets, star fields, star clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies & planets, the Moon and the Sun (with proper safety filtering!), as well as giving excellent daytime terrestrial views.

This wide-field, short-tube telescopes are great as fixed aperture lenses for both astrophotography and terrestrial photography. Their “fast" focal ratios make them useful for capturing lunar and solar eclipses as well as nature photographs. The intuitive and easy to use AZ-3 Alt-Azimuth mount provides excellent stability and precise control, via its slow-motion cables, on both the horizontal (azimuth) and vertical (altitude) axes.
