Model:  s1145p
Brand:  Skywatcher



The acclaimed Skyhawk 1145P is probably the UK's most popular starter telescope!

The Skywatcher Skyhawk 1145p features a parabolic mirror, normally reserved for more expensive telescopes, that brings all incoming light to the same focus point for reduced aberrations and increased contrast. The mirror also has a Silicon Dioxide overcoat to protect the reflecting surface.

Recipient of two group test winner awards in BBC Sky at Night Magazine.

"The optics were so good".... "The review instrument certainly delivered in every important respect."

Skywatcher Skyhawk 1145P review

The Skyhawk 1145PM has also been awarded Best Budget Buy by Robin Scagell, Vice President of the Society for Popular Astronomy, in his feature The Ten Best Telescopes written for THE INDEPENDENT.

The Skywatcher Skyhawk 114 v 1145p

The more affordable Skyhawk 114 offers greater magnification from a cheaper to manufacture spherical mirror. Unfortunately to achieve this it uses a magnifying element in the focuser drawtube. The magnifying element is the 114's Achilles' heel and because it cannot be removed it restricts the telescope's maximum performance. The 1145p offered here costs only £10 more, has a regular focuser without the magnifying element and features a more sophisticated parabolic mirror. With the Skyhawk 1145p you can realistically upgrade the supplied-in-the-box eyepieces to achieve an even higher optical performance.
