Sky-Watcher Black Diamond 150mm (6") Reflector Telescope
Part# 30150
$599.99

The new Black Diamond 150mm reflector is a good all-around astronomical telescope, with 73% more light gathering than 114mm reflectors.

The new metal-flake black and white accented paint job is not the only upgrade Sky-Watcher made... a 2" Crayford focuser and steel legs make this a highly desirable model.

If you're interested in astrophotography on a budget, this model should definitely be a consideration. Unlike 130mm or smaller reflecting telescopes, this unit will reach focus with DSLR/SLR cameras without any additional optics, delivering fast f/5 performance. The mount can be outfitted with single or dual axis drives, and a polar alignment finder - essential tools for accurate sky tracking.

  • Parabolic primary mirror to focus all light rays to a common focal point
  • Sturdy variable height steel tripod
  • Equatorial mount keeps objects in the eyepiece by adjusting a single control
