Quality Glass–Equipped with high-end Schott BK-7 and FPL-53 ED glass, the Sky-Watcher Pro 120ED virtually eliminates any false color in your images. A fringe of color normally surrounds an object under high magnification, but these materials induce color correction.
Good Resolution–With its 120-millimeter aperture and 900-millimeter focal length, this telescope provides an impressive view of the moon, planets and other celestial bodies in deep space. Because this model is also an astrograph, or astrographic camera, users can also take high-quality images of their favorite objects.
Coated Optics–Sky-Watcher coats the surface of each Pro 120ED lens with anti-reflective metallic to ensure only optimum light gets through. Certain lenses are also light-baffled, causing them to reflect stray, unfocused light and increase the contrast between an object and its surroundings.
Accessories & Features–This model weighs a little over 11 pounds, but portability is even easier with its included aluminum carrying case. A right-angle finderscope helps you locate objects through a larger field of view, while multiple eyepieces provide different levels of magnification.
No Stand: While it has tube-ring attachment hardware, this telescope doesn’t come with an actual stand. At this elevated price point, it’s a little disappointing that you’ll have to make an additional purchase to effectively use this telescope.
