Description

With a 150mm aperture, the telescope has 33% more light gathering power than a 130mm telescope, and 73% more light than 114mm, making it an excellent scope for beginners who want something just a bit more powerful. 

Key Features

  • Large 150mm Aperture offers Sharp and Clear Views
  • Go-To Alt-Azimuth Mount
  • A Simple yet Efficient Mount For Telescopes or Cameras
  • Parabolic Primary Mirror

The Sky-Watcher 150/750 Star Discovery is a fully automatic telescope ideal for beginners and those who want to get straight to observing. Aligning the mount takes mere minutes with the “Bright Object” alignment mode, and the computerised SynScan system is the ultimate upgrade that allows automatic pointing and tracking of more than 42,000 object in the sky! This means less time spent finding a faint nebula or a distant planet and more time to enjoy observing. Astronomy has never been so easy!

The Star Discovery mount is the upgrade of the Star Explorer, featuring the Freedom Find dual encoder technology. Once aligned, the telescope can be manually pointed anywhere in the sky without losing alignment, giving the user enormous freedom, convenience and flexibility during the observations.

This Newtonian telescope uses diffraction limited mirrors for a superior optical quality. The primary mirror is aspheric (parabolic) and collimable ensuring precise mirror alignment and crisp image quality.

  • SynScan Database with 42,900+ Objects (NGC, SAO, IC and SAO Catalogues)
  • Two Star or Brightest Star Alignment
