Sky-Watcher 120/600 F5 AZ3 Refractor Telescope

After using SCTs for a while, I bought this refractor to get some basic experience with wide-field astronomy and also get a scope that could do double-duty viewing whales, shipping and Bass Strait oil rigs from my lounge room.
It is and achro so I didn’t expect anything too exciting but I have been very surprised with clear, sharp viewing, both astronomically and terrestrially.
The included AZ3 mount has both coarse and fine adjustment on both axes and provides great stability.
I have now upgraded to an Apochromatic refractor, so this great is scope up for sale.
Perfect for beginner, or more experienced astronomer as a travel scope, it features 120mm diam, 600mm focal length, fast f/5 optics that give exciting rich field astronomical views. It can provide excellent vistas of star fields, clusters, nebulae, galaxies, planets and the Moon with 38% more light gathering than the smaller SW 102/500.

  • 120/600mm Achromatic Refractor
  • AZ3 Mount with Aluminium Tripod and slow motion controls

  • Red Dot finder
  • Telescope Eyepiece Adapter from 2″ to 1.25″
  • 45 deg Erect Image Diagonal (for astro and terrestrial)
  • 90 deg diagonal (for astro)
Condition is excellent and would suit new buyer. The only blemish being some minor surface rust on a couple of screw heads..

Will deliver at buyer’s risk and cost. estimate $60 - $90 depending on destination.
