SkyWatcher is a First-Class, market-leading astronomical telescope brand offering an incredible range of high quality astronomical telescopes and telescope accessories, catering for users of all age groups and abilities, from the novice right up to the serious advanced astronomer.

SkyWatcher telescopes perfectly integrate modern optical technology with precision mechanical engineering resulting in designs of superb functionality, versatility and uncompromising levels of performance.

There are many different telescope designs and ranges available:

The Synscan GoTo motorised telescope models are both ideal for the beginner as well as those who would like a telescope that can be also for terrestrial daytime use. The unique and ultra-portable range of Tabletop Heritage Telescopes are ideal for use on camping trips and trips overseas etc. SkyWatcher’s range of Skyhawk & Explorer Newtonian Reflectors and Skyliner Dobsonian telescope models offer excellent all-round performance on all types of astronomical object, and the best aperture-to-price ratio (more precious light gathering for a given price). The compact, portable, yet high-power Skymax Maksutov-Cassegrain and Skymax PRO-Series telescope models excel for the detailed viewing of planets. They also provide upright images, making them useful also for daytime long-range terrestrial observations. The classical Mercury, Capricorn and Evostar range of long-tube refractors provide excellent results when viewing the planets. The range of Startravel short-tube refractors are more suited to viewing deep-sky objects and wide field astrophotography, with some excellent results. Their short focal ratios also make them ideal for daytime terrestrial use and as telephoto lenses for photographic use.

The state-of-the-art Skywatcher PRO-Series Evostar & Equinox ED Apochromatic Refractors provide ultimate colour-corrected performance for planetary and deep-sky imaging. The Equinox ED Refractors can also be used as high-performance spotting scopes and telephoto photographic lenses for birdwatching and daytime nature studies. All refractors, used with a star diagonal or erecting prism provide upright images, making them suitable for terrestrial use.
