The Skywatcher 1145p features a parabolic mirror, normally reserved for more expensive telescopes, that brings all incoming light to the same focus point for reduced aberrations and increased contrast. The mirror also has a Silicon Dioxide overcoat to protect the reflecting surface.Recipient of two group test winner awards in BBC Sky at Night Magazine.

"The optics were so good".... "The review instrument certainly delivered in every important respect."

Skywatcher Skyhawk 1145P review


The Skyhawk 1145PM has also been awarded Best Budget Buy by Robin Scagell, Vice President of the Society for Popular Astronomy, in his feature The Ten Best Telescopes written for THE INDEPENDENT.
 

The Skywatcher 114 v 1145p

The lower priced  114 offers high magnification from a cheaper to manufacture spherical mirror. Unfortunately to achieve this it uses a magnifying element in it’s focuser drawtube. The magnifying element is the 114's Achilles' heel because it limits image quality and cannot be removed. We recommend the Skyhawk 1145p shown here because it costs only around £10 more, has a regular focuser and a more sophisticated parabolic mirror. You can also usefully upgrade the supplied-in-the-box eyepieces to achieve even higher optical performance.
