SkyWatcher Heritage 90 Virtuoso Dobsonian Telescope

Four centuries ago, an Italian scientist, Galileo Galilei, introduced an elementary telescope that changed the science forever. His discoveries provided the solid evidence to disprove the Earth was the center of the Universe. And now, to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy, Sky-Watcher is proud to present the commemorative edition of Newton's Telescope - Heritage.

Designed to be fully functional telescope, this SkyWatcher Heritage-90 Virtuoso Dobsonian Telescope is very simple and easy to use, an ideal gift for young astronomer. Equipped with a Virtuoso™ mount with Freedom-Find™ technology, it allows the telescope to be manually maneuvered in either axis without disrupting the polar alignment; thus creating freedom and convenience to users using the telescope. Besides, the setup also offers camera/video cruising through six preset positions at five different speeds. This ensures smooth picture acquisition of the object without causing it to run off from the field of view.

Nonetheless, the Virtuoso mount can be further upgraded to Go-To system by installing the Synscan AZ Go-To handset and cable.
