The Sky-Watcher Skyhawk-1145P Telescope features premium quality Parabolic Primary Mirrors, which are normally found in larger more expensive telescopes, to eliminate spherical aberrations, and produce even sharper, higher-contrast images which are full of detail. A parabolic or more accurately a paraboloidal mirror, is ground to a shape which brings all incoming light rays to a perfect focus, on axis. They also feature 0.5mm Ultra-Thin secondary mirror supports, to reduce diffraction spikes and light loss.
This telescope is equipped with a well-engineered German Equatorial Mounting (or GEM) with fully geared manual slow-motion hand controls and a rigid aluminium full height field tripod.
