About this product
Part Number: 10940
The Sky-Watcher Startravel 120 telescope is a tried & trusted two-element, air-spaced achromatic refractor that provides wonderful wide-field views of comets, star fields, star clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies & planets, the Moon and Sun (with proper safety filtering!).
It is also an excellent telescope for daytime terrestrial observing when used with the supplied erecting prism or as a ‘fast’ fixed aperture lense for both astrophotography and terrestrial photography (camera adapters available separately).

As a binocular guy who loves wide field views, this scopes really hit all the right marks. High quality all metal construction. Sharp optics. Decent coatings and manageable weight at a bargain price. A 12 centimeter lens really is the sweet spot in astronomy. Enough light gathering and resolution for some serious astronomy, while being relatively light and portable.
Fast achromats are not the first choice for planetary observation and if you favors that, you should go with the Evostar F8,3 model instead. It's a much longer telescope though and not as comfortable and fun to use as this Grab-n-Go model.
The only let down is the diagonal and eyepiece included. I never planned to use those, but this scope really needs a 2" diagonal and a nice 68-82 degree 24-32 mm eyepiece. For this price it's hard to complain to much.
I must say i'm impressed by Sky-Watcher and their telescopes. For prices within reach for almost everyone you get high-quality astronomy equipment.
Also thank you FLO for your international service and website! A pain free and enjoyable experience!
