The Sky-Watcher Skymax-127 SynScan AZ GoTo Telescope provides a massive 55% more light-gathering power, and packs an even more powerful punch than the Skymax-102.

Best quality to cost ratio around

Yes you can spend a fortune and get a bigger and better scope but for this money there is nothing better. Superb quality for the money and a great all round package with full computer control and a compact easy to transport high quality optic. If you are thinking of spending less, save up and buy this instead.
