Choosing the right telescope

There are two major factors to consider when choosing the right telescope: your experience with astronomy and your budget. Luckily, there's enough Sky-Watcher telescopes out there that there's something for everyone and every budget.

If you're looking for one of the best beginner telescopes then you'll want to look out for something easy to set up and easy to use. You can get good quality telescopes for under or around $100, the Sky-Watcher Mercury 607 (opens in new tab) refractor or the Sky-Watcher Astrolux 76 (opens in new tab) reflector have retailed in that price range before. More experienced astronomers who might want to make more of an investment can always opt for models like Sky-Watcher Skyliner-250PX (opens in new tab) or Sky-Watcher Skyliner-200P (opens in new tab), which offer higher-end specs.

If it's one of the best telescopes for kids you're looking for then we can recommend the Sky-Watcher Heritage 76 (opens in new tab) and Sky-Watcher Infinity 76P because of their low maintenance and easy-to-store away qualities. They're also robust in build so you'll get years of use out of little investment and they can withstand minor knocks too. Two great options for introducing someone to sky watching or just in case astronomy is a passing phase. 

The Sky-Watcher telescope models we have introduced so far are perfect for views of the solar system, with notable targets being the craters and seas of the moon and small but bright sights of Jupiter and Saturn. They will also provide good observations of bright deep-sky objects such as the Orion Nebula in the constellation of Orion (the Hunter) and the stunning Pleiades star cluster in Taurus (the Bull).

Those keen on a substantial step up in quality and closer views of targets will need to consider increasing their budget for a larger objective lens or aperture — that is the "light-gathering” ability of a telescope. For magnified views of the planets, galaxies and nebulas, the Sky-Watcher Skyhawk-114, Sky-Watcher Explorer-200P and Sky-Watcher Skyliner-400P FlexTube Parabolic Dobsonian are certainly worth a look.

With an increase in budget, comes an improvement in the type of technology that has become prevalent in telescope manufacturing: computerized, or GoTo, mounts. At the touch of a button, these revolutionary instruments are able to slew to your chosen target without needing to use sky maps to find your way around the night sky. They’re not aimed at any particular level of astronomer and are often used by beginners and seasoned skywatchers alike, particularly since they also offer a quick and easy align process and take the hassle out of manual calibration.

In terms of computerized telescopes, the Sky-Watcher Explorer-130PS AZ-Gti WiFi, Sky-Watcher Skyliner-200P FlexTube SynScan GoTo, Sky-Watcher Evostar-120 (EQ3 PRO) SynScan GoTo, Sky-Watcher Heritage-90P Virtuoso and Sky-Watcher Startravel-102 (AZ) SynScan GoTo are all excellent choices. Deciding on which one is best for you will largely depend on your budget, whether you’re a keen solar system observer, want to bring those faint deep-sky galaxies and nebulas into sharper focus or are hunting for a bit of an all-arounder.
