David Shen, the founder of Sky-Watcher, started pursuing his interest in optics design and star observing when he was 26, working as a polishing technician at a research institute in Taiwan.
It was a lovely summer night after work that the bright stars urged David to observe them with a telescope. After placing the telescope on top of the hood of his car, the view of the magnificent rings from the Saturn planet greatly moved David. That night was deeply engraved in David's memory since and constantly inspires him to live his dream:
Building High-quality and Affordable Telescopes for Everyone.
“In the past, telescopes are only available to few. But I hope that I could help more people gaze further.” David summarizes his dream. This dream gradually took shape when David established Synta factory for building optics in the 1990s. In 1999, Synta launched the "Sky-Watcher" brand. Striving to its uttermost to improve product quality and reduce cost, Sky-Watcher continues to design and manufacture superior telescopes for enthusiasts worldwide.
“Innovate continuously, and always challenge your limits.” —as his simple motto suggests, David’s passion and love for astronomy have turned into a great source of creativity and pursuit of quality.
Price £2,659.00Combining the power of a large optical tube, the extreme portability of the patented collapsible FlexTube design and SynScan computerised Go-To technology, the new Skyliner FlexTube Synscan Dobsonians bring over 42,900 celestial objects right in front of your eyes, and automatically tracks them as they move across the sky - its as easy as a walk in the park!
A rival to the Celestron C6 OTA for performance, albeit not for wide-field imaging or for cool-down time. An excellent lunar and planetary telescope, both for imaging and observing.
A premium 102mm guidescope designed to be used in conjunction with the Sky-Watcher Guidescope Mount (prod.code 20244).
Sky-Watcher STARTRAVEL telescopes are two-element, air-spaced achromatic refractors, that are well proven performers for ‘Rich-Field’ views of comets, star fields, star clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies & planets, the Moon and the Sun (with proper safety filtering!), as well as giving excellent daytime terrestrial views when used with an erecting prism (not supplied with this model).
Easily the best value for money 7" Mak available.
Sky-Watcher Explorer-150PL 150mm (6") f/1200 Parobolic Newtonian Reflector Optical Tube Assembly. All Sky Watcher Black Diamond Newtonian Reflectors feature 0.5mm ultra-thin secondary mirror supports to reduce diffraction spikes and light loss, and high quality Paraboloidal primary mirrors to eliminate spherical aberration.
Celestial alignment of the alt-az is breathtakingly simple. An initial session informs the mount of its observational latitude. It is afterwards only necessary to switch on the power (whilst pointing the tube towards Polaris) for the drive to track celestial objects wherever directed. Remarkable!
