About the SkyWatcher 120mm Espirit APO Triplet Refractor

SkyWatcher Espirit refractors were designed for the discerning astrophotographer but with affordability in mind, resulting in a 120mm f/7 triplet APO refractor with three-element air spaced objective lens design, false color is completely eliminated, yielding exceptional contrast and sharpness. The included 2-element field corrector guarantees a flat field across the entire imaging plane. The Sky-Watcher exclusive Helinear Track focusing system provides a smooth, rock-solid focuser with zero image shift.

All Sky-Watcher USA Esprit refractors come with a 8x50 right angle finderscope, 2-inch Star diagonal, 2-element field flattener, camera adapter, D-style dovetail and padded case.

About the Starlight Xpress Trius SX-42 Monochrome Camera:

The SX42 Trius camera by Starlight Xpress features the ultra low noise Sony 694 sensor and excellent QE of up to 77%.  A built in USB hub for guider and filter wheel control and a 7 position filter wheel for 1.25" filters, this smart camera also includes a built in off axis guider with Lodestar X2 guide camera and a handy carry case.

About the Lodestar X2 Guide Camera:

The Starlight Xpress Lodestar X2 uses the ICX829 Exview chip from Sony and offers excellent sensitivity. This new 'Exview 2' chip approximately doubles the Lodestar sensitivity and adds nearly a full star magnitude to the minimum guide star brightness. Boards have been redesigned so that a standard RJ12 guide socket can be used for robust performance.
