Sky-Watcher Black Diamond 90mm (3.5\") Refractor Telescope on AZ3

Sky-Watcher Telescope has been driving the amateur telescope market with high quality products. The Black Diamond series continues the tradition, with improved styling - a metal-flake black paint job, along with the same high quality optics we've come to expect from Sky-Watcher.

Refracting telescopes provide greater contrast than reflecting telescopes, making them ideal for planetary and lunar observing. The scope produces an upright and correctly orientated image with the included erect image diagonal prism, making it ideal for beginners just learning the sky and terrestrial observing. The slow motion control cables makes tracking land and sky objects a breeze.

Note: photo shows a red dot finderscope. This model is actually shipped with a 6x30 finder.
