Details

The Skywatcher Stargate-450P Synscan 458MM (18”) f/4.1 Parabolic Truss Tube Computerised Go-To Dobsonian is now available from Telescope House.  For those who've lusted after a truly large goto instrument, this telescope offers a straightforward approach to larger aperture observing without neccessarily being tied down to a permanent installation in an observatory.


 Easily assembled in around 20 minutes, with quick release construction, the Skywatcher Stargate-450P Synscan is motorised in both altitude and azimuth axes and once aligned to the night time sky with a one or two star alignment routine will find and track any of the over 40,000 objects in the Synscan database.  Building on the success of the dual encoder technology, which Skywatcher have employed on their Skywatcher EQ8, AZ EQ6 and AZ EQ5 GT models (amongst others), the Skywatcher Stargate-450P Synscan has two encoders on each axis, in order to keep precise alignment if manually slewed to a different location.  This is the first dobsonian telescope to feature such dual encoder technology in the Skywatcher range, which will no doubt please seasoned Dobsonian users.


The Skywatcher Stargate-450P Synscan is supplied with a useful number of accessories: a 10mm 1.25" eyepiece and a widefield 28mm 2" LET eyepiece, Collimating eyepiece, 9x50mm Finderscope, wraparound fabric light shroud, Dual Speed Crayford-style focuser and DSLR camera connector.
