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.

Everlasting memories
Sunday, 6 December 2020  | 

I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend as part of a moon gazing engagement proposal. Neither of us had ever used a telescope, but it was easy to set up, and despite me initially neglecting to install the angle control screw, we were both stunned at the quality of the moon images we were able to see. You can easily see the texture of the moons circumference and get some perspective of the depth of individual craters. I have no basis of comparison, but I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this model for anyone who wants a good quality hobby telescope, something that will let you spend quality time with friends and family, creating memories that last forever.

New and happy skywatcher

Bought this as a first telescope based on reviews. Not as fiddly as I expected, took maybe over an hour to get it going. Everyone who has seen it is very impressed so far. You can always spend more on a first scope but as someone looking for a decent first setup that wouldn't require a garage conversion this was exactly what i was after.
