SIGETA SkyTouch 90 GoTo is a mirror lens telescope with a computerized mount that provides autoranging and tracking of astronomical objects. The Maksutov-Cassegrain optical scheme has produced a compact and powerful telescope capable of displaying over 30,000 objects from its base, including Mercury phases, lunar craters and seas on Mars, Uranus, Neptune and more.
The telescope's optics are made from quality glass, the surfaces are finished with a reflective aluminium coating, and the lens elements have several layers of anti-reflective multi-layer coating - a combination that produces perfectly clear and sharp images without chromatic aberration. The kit includes the high-quality accessories: a 25mm (50x) Kelner eyepiece, a 10mm (125x) Pleslas, a viewfinder and a diagonal mirror for a straightforward terrestrial image. The Kelner eyepiece gives a wide field of view, suitable for observing extended astronomical objects (nebulae, constellations, diffuse clusters), the Plessle eyepiece is suitable for objects requiring high magnification (planets).
The telescope is mounted on a computerized alto-azimuth mount with a high degree of automation. Users have access to over 30,000 objects from the database, which are selected using the SkyTouch hand-held controller. The controller is connected to the mount via USB and powered by AA batteries (8 pcs.) or a 12V/500mA AC adapter (batteries purchased separately). The mount has actuators on both axes, which are controlled by a microprocessor. It uses a self-tuning algorithm, which provides much greater precision for smooth movement, and auto-tracking allows you to track the daily movements of the object. The steel tripod is height-adjustable and its feet are rubber-coated, which together with the accessory tray increases the stability of the entire structure.
The advantages of this mirrored lens telescope are its high quality optics, small size and ease of installation and use. The automated controls help you to quickly find an interesting object to observe and give you the pleasure of observing for a long time, accompanying it.
