Sky-Watcher Quattro 150P f/4 six-inch imaging Newtonian with modified aplanatic super coma corrector
The new QUATTRO-150P, with it's fast f/4 focal ratio, has been specially designed for high-quality astrophotography with short exposure times and is also a fine telescope for visual observations.
Supplied with a modified M48 Aplanatic Super Coma Corrector (four elements, including one ED glass element) that reduces the focal ratio to a super-fast f3.45 (518mm).
Supplied with the same Crayford focuser as the other models in the Quattro range, which utilises four precision ball bearings to support the drawtube and provide great stability and zero image shift while supporting a heavy eyepiece or camera. Moving the drawtube by the roller rather than a rack and pinion ensures exceptionally smooth operation, great feel and precise adjustability. The dual-speed feature has a second focus knob with a 10:1 speed reduction to provide super-fine adjustments even the most demanding users can appreciate.
Note 1: The tube interior does not feature internal baffles like some other Quattro models.

Iíve only managed to get out and use this telescope once due to the poor weather in the UK. I thought I would test its capabilities on the M31 Andromeda, always a good deep-sky target to practice on. I must admit for only 1 hour 30 minutes of integration time using an old Canon 700d camera (This telescope with coma corrector has a max sensor size limit of APS-C without star warping) I was pretty much blown away by the results, this is what Iíve managed to get so far http://lunartool.co.uk/stuff/M31-17092022.jpg F3.45 at that price isnít bad.
Iíve used Newtonís before but never really bothered with collimation. I did add bobs knobs to the telescope to help but after watching and reading a few guides on collimation only takes me a few minutes to get it spot on, I really wouldnít let collimation put you off, it isnít that bad. If you want a lightweight fast telescope for pulling data down quickly then this is a must-have.
