A larger version of the Skymax-102 providing a massive 55% more light-gathering power, and packing an even more powerful punch than its smaller cousin for medium-to-high-power work.

Features a compact but powerful, high-contrast, high-resolution Maksutov-Cassegrain optical system. High-transmission multi-coatings are employed on all optical surfaces for optimum performance.

The Skywatcher SynScan Alt-Azimuth GoTo Mount allows you to easily find and observe planets, nebulae, star clusters, galaxies and more. With the easy to use SynScan hand control you can point your telescope at a specific object, or tour the night sky at the touch of a button! 

"This is one of the jewels in the Sky-Watcher’s crown. Its large enough to produce richly detailed, high-contrast Lunar and Planetary images…The Skymax-127 packs a performance punch with a relatively short cool-down time….For daytime terrestrial use, the instrument is quite capable of focusing down to 8 metres"

Great bit of kit and Service
Thursday, 26 June 2014  | 

This is my first "goto" telescope and it is awesome, I bought it mainly for taking photos of the moon and planets and it works like a dream.
I bought the Skywatcher PowerTank 7Ah as stated buy others as using normal AA batteries can be abit hit and miss. I also bought the "Aluminium Case for Skymax 150" which fits the telescope and lenses, bits etc. perfectly, however it doesn't fit the tripod or goto motor which is what I expected. The "Nikon T Ring" all fits perfectly to my Nikon D5100 DSLR. I'm a very happy chappy

Excellent first scope
Sunday, 18 May 2014  | 

Had this about a year now. Telescope is great, but the included battery pack is a bit of a waste of time so I'd budget another 50 for a power tank. I found running on AA batteries the scope was unreliable and star alignment problematic. With the power tank it's faultless. I only gave 4* for this reason. The optics are superb, great views of Jupiter and Saturn and great lunar detail. Also terrestrial viewing is amazingly clear. Screw a digital slr on the back and you can get some great shots using it as a powerful zoom.

School astronomy club

I bought the Skymax 127 AZ Goto for the local school astronomy club and have been testing it this week.
Optics are superb, very crisp views of the moon.
Extremely easy to set up and very lightweight, which is important for the novice users at school.
Just waiting for the astro-video camera to arrive to test it for lunar and planetary imaging, but I have high hopes.
