The SkyWatcher Newton 150/750 f5 is a 150mm diameter and 750mm focal reflector that offers high performance at a very affordable price. Everything in a lightweight and easy to transport optical tube, with an unexpected optical and mechanical quality for such a low price.
The SkyWatcher Newton 150/750 f5 telescope has a solid 50,8mm diameter Crayford focuser with 31.8mm adapter and 1:10 fine focus knob, better than the one of similar telescopes by other brands. Then it allows both to use wide-angle 50,8mm diameter eyepieces (for low magnification and large fields of view) and to connect large sensors camera (such as DSLRs): in this case we recommend the use of the coma corrector for f5 telescopes that flattens the field.
SynScan hand-pad firmware 4: precise tracking and automatic goto and many functions
The SkyWatcher EQ5 SynScan mount uses SynScan computer to control all functions, even the most advanced ones dedicated to astrophotography. The main functions are:
- 42.000 objects internal database
At the base of the hand-pad, you can find the computer connection port: via the supplied cable, you can connect the mount to a computer to control it remotely. Then you can use one of the many compatible planetary software (such as Cartes du Ciel) to control the mount not only from the hand-pad but directly from the PC.
Using the same cable connection, you can update the hand-pad firmware by downloading the updates that SkyWatcher periodically releases on the internet. The SynScan hand-pad is also compatible with the GPS accessory: it automatically detects the location of the place of observation (latitudine and longitude), date and time for an easier and more precise initial alignment procedure of the mount itself.
