Sky-Watcher Skymax-180 PRO (HEQ5 PRO) 180mm (7.1") f/2700 Motorised Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope. Black Diamond PRO-Series is the name for the new generation of professional quality telescopes and mounts of the Sky-Watcher range, targeted at the most discerning and critical observers, available in apertures of 150mm and 180mm. Skymax Black Diamond-PRO series Maksutov-Cassegrains are manufactured to extremely high levels of optical and mechanical precision, undergoing very strict quality control procedures and testing by specially assigned technicians, to ensure the highest standards of quality and performance are consistently maintained. They employ super-high contrast optical systems, utilising high-transmission multi-coatings on all optical services, for optimum optical performance. The quality of each telescope is monitored by means of a Ronchi test and an artificial star test. They excel for high-power, high-resolution and Planetary applications. No effort is spared to reach optimal optical quality. More
World Exclusive Co-Branding Agreement with Schott.
Selected high-end Sky-Watcher telescopes benefit from the inclusion of Schott glass in their construction. Schott is the recognised world leader in glass utilised for precision optical lens systems, including medical instrumentation and famous brand camera lenses. Sky-Watcher’s parent company signed a worldwide exclusive telescope co-branding agreement with Schott in March 2008.
This heavy-duty mount, with its payload capacity of up to 18Kg, is simply a scaled down version of the EQ6. It is specially designed for observers who need similar steadiness of the EQ6 mount, but find the EQ6 too physically demanding. Like the EQ6 mount, this high precision equatorial mount features engraved aluminium setting circles and a latitude scale, built-in polar scope holder and polarscope, large R.A. and DEC. locking clamps, built-in dual axis motor drives with multi-speed hand controller, and retractable counterweight shaft and counterweight. The field tripod is remarkably stable with adjustable height, incorporating 1.75" diameter stainless steel tripod legs. Can be easily upgraded to a fully computerised Go-To mount with the HEQ5 SynScan™ PRO GOTO Upgrade Kit (Product code 887) available separately.
Included Accessories: (2 Inch) 28mm Eyepiece, 9x50 Finderscope, Star Diagonal, HEQ5 Motorised Heavy-Duty Mount, Stainless Steel Pipe Tripod with Accessory Tray
