High resolution 90mm
long-tube refractor on the AZ3 mount/tripod!

short-tube refractor...providing
the focal length of the eyepiece
is the same for each refractor.

OPTICAL DESIGN NOTES

Ritchey-Chretien astrographs are generally regarded as being the best design for astrophotography, due to their extremely flat field.

Ritchey-Chretien (RC) optical designs are generally regarded as being optically superior to Schmidt-Cassegrain (SCT) designs
and "edge" corrected SCTs.

  Schmidt-Cassegrain optical designs are generally regarded as being superior to Maksutov-Cassegrain designs due to their higher light transmission, etc.

 Incredible Skywatcher sale continues ad infinitum...

All photos are for illustration
purposes only. Please note that Skywatcher Australia has never,
ever, ever, ever, equipped any Skywatcher Dobsonian telescopes with tension control handles.
In fact, the Skywatcher factory (Synta) in Suzhou, China, fits
tension control handles during
the normal manufacturing
process of these telescopes!


SHIPPING & INSURANCE NOTES

Insurance cover for goods in transit is available from us for only $2 per $100 value of goods. Please advise us if you require this option when ordering.

 Please consider insurance because we are not responsible for loss of parcels or damage sustained by parcels as the carrier is responsible! We do pack well! If your order (e.g. telescope or binocular) is damaged in-transit by the freight company then you must claim on the freight company, not ourselves!!

Of course, if you have paid us for insurance then you simply claim on us. We are quick at resolving damage claims, compared to
many freight companies.

Please do NOT write <fragile> on anything you send to us as doing so greatly increases the risk of damage. Please try to "double-box" all products sent to us.

Warranty cover is not insurance cover, of course. Warranty applies only to factory faults.

SynScan notes   

Auto-tracking models can easily be upgraded to full SynScan "Go-To" computerised operation by simply  plugging in a computerised handset which has AZ SynScan firmware.
This firmware can be downloaded via www.skywatchertelescope.com or www.skywatchertelescope.net to your EQ SynScan handset.

Please note that Skywatcher "GoTo" Dobsonian base assemblies are NOT designed or intended to be turned (rotated) manually by hand. In some instances, the azimuth (horizontal) motor drive may not engage properly if the internal clutch adjustment is set too loosely to allow easy manual turning of the base assembly by hand. Tightening or loosening of the main clutch bolt will be required.

SALES NOTES

We not only supply truly excellent telescopes at better-than-fantastic prices, we provide our five (5) year warranty on all new Skywatcher products we import and sell. All new Tasco-supplied Skywatcher products we sell have Tasco's five (5) year  warranty applying. We also offer our after-sales service support to ensure you enjoy many years of very happy
observing and astrophotographing.
When we quote "Ships in 2~3 business days" we are relying upon suppliers to supply us within that
time period. We would be waiting for
stock of that product at that time.

We set the real "street" prices on Skywatcher products in Australia.

You can certainly shop with great confidence at Andrews! Est. 1976.

ALTITUDE SETTING NOTES RE OLDER EQUATORIAL MOUNTS, SUCH AS EQ3 AND EQ5...

Please do not screw or unscrew any mount's latitude (altitude/vertical) locking screws in order to force the mount higher or lower in latitude angle. To adjust a mount's latitude angle, loosen the mount's latitude locking screws whilst holding the mount! Then, slowly push the mount up, or let it down, by hand whilst continuing to wind or unwind the locking screw. Locking screws are designed to lock the mount in place at a set latitude angle. No force should be applied to a locking screw when screwing it in or unscrewing it. Latitude locking screws are intended ONLY for LOCKING a mount's latitude angle, NOT for adjusting (forcing) its
latitude angle! "Forcing" this screw will often cause damage to the mount's internal locking screw's thread! Such damage is NOT
covered by warranty, of course!

Please note; Newer, stronger Skywatcher equatorial mounts
have larger bolts, etc., so the
above situation is less relevant 

*************************

Btw, most short-tube refractors are designed to be used in conjunction with a diagonal. Focus may not be achievable without using a diagonal or a focal extender tube. Diagonals and focal extenders are at additional cost if not included in refractor packges.

*************************

Yes, we have far more new telescopes and accessories in stock than any other telescope dealer/shop in Australasia!
 


SHIPPING & INSURANCE NOTES

Insurance cover for goods in transit is available from us for only $2 per $100 value of goods. Please advise us if you require this option when ordering.

Please consider insurance because we are not responsible for loss of parcels or damage sustained by parcels as the carrier is responsible! We do pack well! If your order (e.g. telescope or binocular) is damaged in-transit by the freight company then you must claim on the freight company, not ourselves!!

However, if you have paid us for insurance then you simply claim on us. We are quick at resolving damage claims, compared to
many freight companies.

Please do NOT write <fragile> on anything you send to us as doing so greatly increases the risk of damage. Please try to "double-box" all products sent to us.

Images are for illustration purposes only and are not necessarily representative of any products.
Please ask us or search internet for photos and extra information.

Prices are subject to change due to recent exchange rate variations.

We reserve the right to limit sale quantities to retail levels.

Quantity pricing is by negotiation.

Bonuses are not redeemable for
cash or a further discount.

Please keep in mind that the customer is responsible for freight
costs both ways when sending warranty claim items to us.
 

Please remember that warranty may be void if you internally disassemble any telescope, regardless of model.

Customer-caused or environment-caused damage is not covered by warranty, of course.
Warranty cover is not insurance cover, of course. Warranty applies only to factory faults.
