  • Ideal for Beginners
  • Go-To Alt-Azimuth Mount
  • Parabolic Primary Mirror
  • 5 Years Sky-Watcher Limited Warranty

The Sky-Watcher 114/650 Star Explorer is a fully automatic telescope ideal for beginners and those who want to get straight to observing. Aligning the mount takes mere minutes with the “Bright Object” alignment mode, and the computerised SynScan system is the ultimate upgrade that allows automatic pointing and tracking of more than 42,000 object in the sky! This means less time spent finding a faint nebula or a distant planet and more time to enjoy observing. Astronomy has never been so easy!

This Newtonian telescope uses diffraction limited mirrors for a superior optical quality. The primary mirror is aspheric (parabolic) and collimable ensuring precise mirror alignment and crisp image quality. The 114mm aperture has 25% more light gathering than a 102mm telescope and 125% more than a 70mm refractor. This means amazing observations of the rings of Saturn, the bands and the moons of Jupiter, the phases of Venus and the polar ice caps on Mars.
