| 2 Fantastic starter Telescopes from Skywatcher. The Skyhawk 1145P and the Explorer 130P. These Telescopes have won widespread acclaim throughout the Astronomy World and have won Telescope reviews in Magazines. We at SBTC have sold hundred of these and have had nothing but good feedback. The Skyhawk 1145P is the smaller of the 2 and more compact and lightweight. The Explorer 130P has extra light grasp and so shows up more fainter objects. Ideal for that gift for the astronomer just starting out.Please call us on 0161 429 8002 if you need any help. |
