Sky-Watcher Heritage-90P Virtuoso Computerised Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope provides excellent all-round performance for observation of the Moon, Planets and Deep-Sky objects. The new Virtuoso mount, whist providing a stable observing platform, also tracks night-sky objects once located. The telescope can be slewed automatically in both axes, at five different speeds, via the mount’s electronic keypad. A great feature of the Virtuoso is the patented Freedom-Find dual-encoder technology which also allows the telescope to be moved manually in either axis without losing its alignment or positional information, giving you enormous convenience and flexibility during observing sessions.
