Details

The Skywatcher Stargate-500P Synscan 508MM (20”) f/4 Parabolic Truss Tube Computerised Go-To Dobsonian is the largest in the Skywatcher Stargate Dobsonian range of motorised Goto telescopes.  Featuring an enormous 20-inch/508mm parabolic mirror, this telescope has enormous deep sky potential with a limiting visual magnitude of +16 mag (under ideal sky conditions).

Easily assembled in around 20 minutes, with quick release construction, the Skywatcher Stargate-500P 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-500P 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-500P Synscan comes with 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.
