With their long focal lengths and breathtaking, diffraction limited optical performance, they are ideal for the detailed high-power study of the Moon, Planetary Surfaces and other objects in our solar system, giving crisp contrasty images. Supplied with the EQ5 equatorial mount, which when polar aligned, will allow you to easily track objects as they move across the night sky via its slow motion controls.

An ordinary single lens brings different wavelengths of light to different focal points

Our view

Choose this combination if you are thinking of adding dSLRs and guidescopes, or 2" star diagonals and 2" eyepieces to the weight of the OTA. The EQ5 is more capable than the EQ3-2 for handling greater weights. An excellent white light solar refractor by adding some Baader Astrosolar over the front aperture. An affordable instrument for schools to purchase for science project astronomical observing. 120mm is easily enough for visibility of all Messier objects as well as good lunar and planetary detail.


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.
