The full GOTO version of the 120mm Evostar. A portable complete telescope with all the functions required for modern astronomy. A good choice for a family telescope, easy to handle and set up. Prime focus photography is simple with this telescope as is A-focal photography with a compact digital camera. An attractive instrument as well as a competent performer. An excellent white light solar refractor by adding some Baader Astrosolar over the front aperture. 120mm is easily enough for visibility of all Messier objects as well as good lunar and planetary detail.
Requirements. You will need a 12v DC power supply, such as a Powertank, or a tip positive regulated 230v AC to 12v DC adapter.
Budget for an A4 sheet of Baader Astrosolar and a weak sky pollution filter such as the Baader Neodymium 1.25 filter. Budget also for a 1.25" Baader polarizing set or a 1.25" Neutral density filter for the moon. It is also worth considering a 6mm eyepiece for the moon and planets.
