"This is one of the jewels in the Sky-Watcher’s crown. Its large enough to produce richly detailed, high-contrast Lunar and Planetary images…The Skymax-127 packs a performance punch with a relatively short cool-down time….For daytime terrestrial use, the instrument is quite capable of focusing down to 8 metres"
