Sky-Watcher Heritage-90P Virtuoso Computerised Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope provides excellent all-round performance for observation of the Moon, Planets and Deep-Sky objects. The new Virtuoso mount, whist providing a stable observing platform, also tracks night-sky objects once located. The telescope can be slewed automatically in both axes, at five different speeds, via the mount's electronic keypad. A great feature of the Virtuoso is the patented Freedom-Find dual-encoder technology which also allows the telescope to be moved manually in either axis without losing its alignment or positional information, giving you enormous convenience and flexibility during observing sessions.

March 2012 - Astronomy is one of the oldest of the Natural Sciences, if not the oldest, and one which can be taken up by practically anyone with very little knowledge or equipment from the outset. It’s a science, in which amateur astronomers can provide results of genuine interest and further the understandings of astronomy at large, and like all hobbies and past-times, it has a start place, and everyone has to start somewhere.

A perfect Grab-and-Go Scope!
As well as its superb astronomical functionality, the Virtuoso mount has a lot of other clever features for photography (camera not included).
Camera Cruising: Take photographs automatically with your DSLR at up to 6 pre-set positions. The mount will stop at each predetermined position and automatically trigger the camera’s shutter release. (Canon-D electronic shutter release cable supplied but other Skywatcher cables are readily available).
Video Cruising/Time Lapse Photography: The mount can automatically move your video camera through up to 6 pre-set positions without any pause. Up to 5 speeds can be selected in this mode (see Slewing speeds in specification).
Panoramic/Matrix Photography: The mount can control a DSLR camera to take long exposure panoramas up to 360°.
Furthermore, the Virtuoso mount can be upgraded to GoTo by purchasing a SynScan AZ GoTo handset and cable, allowing 42,900+ night sky objects to be automatically found from its extensive database.

Very Good Value.
About Me Amateur photographer
Great mount for my Cameras, using for multi Panoramic Terrestrial photography. Have not had suitable clear skys yet to try any astro_observations, but seems capable of satisfying my needs.
Good value - not a toy
I don't find this scope flimsy - it seems a solid bit of kit (and focuses fine - even has an infinity guide on the focusing knob!). You will probably need decent eyepieces and a solid tripod/support to get the best out of it. Early tests are good. Finderscope aligns extremely well (VERY helpful to beginners) and optics good at the price (perhaps not as sharp an ETX90 but good enough). Quick and easy to set up and go - which is the idea here! Tracking good enough. Get a Li-on battery pack - you can pay for it by the massive savings offered by the WEX price. Don't be put off. Recommended.

This was not a good buy for me. It take a lifetime to focus and is cheaply made
