Video Rating: 5 / 5

A guide to the Sky-Watcher Heritage 76 – This stunning little scope really is as good as it looks – punching well above its weight – the 76mm primary mirror will out-perform our best 60mm refractor and yet is vastly more portable and convenient to use.

    Brilliant. But I will stick with my 250 Flextube Synscan – I can lift it on the base by myself :-)

    If your GOTO SynScan is capable of both “Tracking and Pointing” you have a FULL Astro-Photographic Telescope, ALL you need is a Reflector Off-Axis system for your Guiding C.C,D, and Pro-DSLR as your intake Camera,just Superb!!!!

    Great video!

    I am thinking of getting a 16 incher next year and just use a ladder with it.

    cheers

    What a monster.

    I don’t think I’d want to sell it. Keep it for myself.

  7. noswonky says:

    That’s an impressive instrument. I have the 12 inch version and it’s close to the limit of what one person can handle.

    Amazing. That is a fantastic telescope!

    I’ve currently got a Sky-Watcher Skyliner-200P 8Inch Parabolic Dobsonian and absolutely love it. I’ve had it about two years but am currently looking up upgrade it with a GoTo system (if possible)… Have you got any suggestions?

    Hi savant23,

    Thanks, the Celestron is supplied with two simple Huygens type eyepieces. They are much cheaper to make and greatly inferior to the two Super MA type supplied with the Sky Watcher. The Huygens have narrower field of view and poor colour correction by comparison. The basic version of the Celestron 76 is not supplied with a finder a more expensive deluxe version must be purchased to get this.

    I hope this is of use to you.

    Kind Regards,

    The Astronomy and Nature Centre
