The STARQUEST Series is a portable, lightweight line that combines well-proven Sky-Watcher telescope optics with a freshly created, expertly manufactured Equatorial/Alt-Azimuth mount. The mount has a premium clutch system, precise gearing with 122 teeth per 360 degrees on both axes, great stability, and a 3 kilogram maximum payload.
