About the Quattro 250 Imaging Newtonian:

The Sky-Watcher Quattro 250 Imaging Newtonian with dual-speed focuser incorporates a superb mirror-set with two significant advantages over competing products. A 2″ dual-speed 10:1 ratio focuser is included for excellent focusing precision. Additionally, the tube length has been slightly shortened to optimize performance for prime-focus photography.  The Quattro was designed to be one of the best performing and affordable imaging Newtonians on the market at an f/4 focal ratio.  This astrograph is capable of exposures that are 6x faster than a typical 8" f/10 SCT.  Keep your exposure times down and have more time to capture the planets, nebulae and other deep sky objects!

All Sky-Watcher Quattro Imaging Newtonian feature borosilicate mirrors with a quartz overcoat, producing an exceptionally bright 94% reflectivity. The optical system uses a large, oversized secondary mirror, providing greater illumination for DSLRs and CCDs using full-frame sensors. The rolled steel optical tube features Sky-Watcher’s signature glossy metal-flake Black Diamond finish on the exterior. The interior of the optical tube uses knife edge baffling to absorb any stray light.

Quattro 250 Features:

  • 254 mm Newtonian reflector
  • 1000 mm (f/4)
  • Fully multi-coated borosilicate mirrors
  • 2” dual-speed 10:1 linear power focuser
  • 8×50 finderscope
  • Tube rings with V-style dovetail bar

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.
