Sky-Watcher StarTravel 102 AZ3 Telescope

The Sky-Watcher StarTravel 102 AZ3 Telescope is a reasonably priced refractor for observers who want decent sharp views of their intended objects without the higher end specifications and optics needed for higher end astrophotography. Since the design consists of a two element, air spaced, fully multi-coated achromat refractor, views are rich and sharp which can provide a remarkable and rewarding visual session of both deep sky objects, planetary objects as well as the Sun (ONLY when using a proper safe solar filter). It also works great as a terrestrial telescope when mounted on an altaz mount or photographic tripod.

Portability and ease of transport are key selling points of the Sky-Watcher StarTravel 102 AZ3 Telescope. The user can easily take it to multiple locations with a quick setup and enjoy the cosmos!

The optical tube included mounting rings simplify the mounting process. The locks can be loosened to rotate and balance the tube.

While long exposure astro imaging may be out of range with the StarTravel 102 AZ3 Telescope, quick imaging of the planets, eclipses or terrestrial photographs is still possible with necessary accessories such as a T-adapter.
