    We've Just made Solar Observation easier for you!

    Introducing Skywatcher’s innovative technology of the revolutionary solar telescope:
    Want to enjoy a fun family astronomy trip in the safety and comfort daylight?
    Pointing the solar scope towards the sun at one go can be a hassle, trying to find the sun in the sky using the tiny blacked out view of a scope is like searching a needle in the hay, why not let the SolarQuest do it for you?

    SolarQuest is user-friendly and provides safe experience while observing the sun. Using Skywatcher’s revolutionary technology “Heliofind”, it can be easily operated by anyone in the family, with just a push of a button, SolarQuest will start slewing in clockwise in the azimuth direction to search for the sun!
    If the tripod is moved by accident, users can easily restart, and it will quickly find the sun.

    This is great set for beginners to observe sunspots, eclipse, and  the transit of inner planets.
