Are you looking for a high power refractor telescope which serves well for terrestrial viewing?

How about a perfect “grab and go” telescope with high quality optics?

Do you want a spotting scope for birding, wildlife studies, nature viewing or surveillance?

Then the Saxon 1206 AZ3 – High Performance Heavy Duty Spotting Scope may just be right for you…

The affordable Saxon 1206 AZ3 is an achromatic refractor telescope with a short, compact tube design which makes it perfect for the observer on the go. At its heart is a quality 120mm objective lens which is multi-coated to produce crisp, clean images with an absolute minimum of chromatic aberration – that annoying “purple fringe” around subject matter. Its short 600mm focal length means it’s a great size for all applications and the f/5 focal length means the Saxon 1206 AZ3 120mm refractor will perform well at high magnification factors… up to 254X with a resolution of 1.02 arc seconds. With a limiting magnitude reach of 13.8, this great little telescope is an astronomy performer and can even be adapted via an optional T-2 adapter ring to work as a telephoto lens with your digital or 35mm SLR!

But, the features don’t stop there. The Saxon 1206 AZ3 – High Performance Heavy-duty Spotting Scope also includes an upgraded 2″ rack and pinion focuser, sturdy AZ3 alt-azimuth mount with slow motion controls on both axes and a lightweight, adjustable height aluminum tripod with convenient accessory tray. What’s more, you get a host of accessories such as an ample 6X30 optical finderscope for easy target acquisition, a 1.25″ 45 degree upright image prism for viewing comfort and two Super eyepieces – 10mm and 25mm.
