    The achromatic 4" refractor on a small German equatorial. Back through the decades this is one of the defining telescopes of amateur astronomy. In the past, the various brands that have offered this combination include Unitron, Vixen, Celestron and Meade. Compared to its forebears, the modern Skywatcher version is the most economic due to the cost of...

    The largest refractor we recommend for the EQ3-2 mount. Larger or heavier telescopes require the EQ5 or better. The 120mm Evostar is at the cross-over point where for a refractor, there is enough aperture for good deep-sky performance, but light enough for mounting ona fairly insubstantial mount. The EQ3-2 can be upgraded to RA tracking or even full GOTO

    The most economical way of obtaining an equatorially mounted 6" refractor. The EQ5 is the lightest mount we recommend for this refractor. Visually, this telescope is an excellent deep-sky instrument, and performs well as a lunar/planetary telescope. Lovely pinpoint star images and much better light than the smaller Evostars mean that it has unbeatable...
