Skywatcher Explorer 150PL EQ3-2 For Sale

This telescope is barely used and still in great condition with all parts. I’m only selling due to lack of time to use it right now.

It's a great piece of equipment if you are a beginner or if you are looking to get more serious about astronomy and are looking for a good quality telescope. This version of the 150P has a longer tube length to achieve greater magnification and contrast - properties that will appeal to planetary enthusiasts.

Here’s what Scope test had to say about it:
"Many contemporary observers severely underestimate what a quality telescope of this size is capable of revealing.

The fit and finish of the Explorer-150PL is typical of Sky-Watchers contemporary products - in other words, extremely good for the money. The rigid yet lightweight rolled steel tube has an unobtrusive seam and the gorgeous slightly metallic sky blue paint finish contrasts nicely with the rounded black tube end castings.

M13, the great Hercules globular cluster, was a magnificent sight despite urban light pollution with resolved components across the core with innumerable peripheral stars. Verdict: a reborn classic that I can't recommend highly enough for the price.."
