SkyWatcher 150/1000 is a mirror telescope system Newton with a mirror diameter of 150 mm and a focal length of 1000 mm
It allows to conduct very advanced visual observations of planets and the Moon, showing a large amount of details on the surfaces of these objects. Due to its construction, it is also recommended for observing nebular objects. Under good observational conditions, it can reveal hundreds of nebulae, galaxies and star clusters included in the Messier and NGC catalogs. It also has a built-in focuser with a diameter of 1.25 inches, which allows the use of any glasses made in this standard, and the integrated thread T2 allows you to attach a reflex camera (camera with interchangeable lens). The whole is a perfect solution for both beginners and advanced observers, guaranteeing a very competitive price.
The telescope's EQ3-2 paraglider montage is a recognized quality that guarantees high stiffness, enabling observation at high magnifications. The light, adjustable height aluminum stand is easy to carry and at the same time stable, while the accessory shelf and the precise micromovement mechanism on hand-operated scrolls complete the set.

For the observation of the Sun, we recommend the safest method of spectacle projection, that is, projecting the image of the target of our day star on a piece of paper.
