New Sky-Watcher SkyMax-102 with AZ-EQ Avant Dual-Mode Alt-Azimuth/Equatorial Mount - Perfect for Grab-and-Go!

The compact but powerful SKYMAX-102 is ideal for the observation of double-stars, and the surface detail of the Moon and bright planets. Its high-resolution, long focal length optical system is multi-coated to maximise contrast and image sharpness. 

The well engineered and easy to use AZ-EQ AVANT mounting provides excellent stability and precise control in either Alt-Azimuth or Equatorial configurations, via its smooth slow motion controls located on both axes. 

The slow motion control knobs can be conveniently positioned at either end of both the R.A. or DEC axis shafts.

Includes useful red dot finderscope.
