Observing with Black Diamond 100 ED

Fortunate indeed is the amateur astronomer with a Black Diamond 100 ED refractor on a clear night with transparent skies and a stable atmosphere. Turning the telescope to the Crescent Moon, the Apennine Mountains snap into razor-sharp focus revealing a cornucopia of jagged mountain ridges, canyons, and numerous small craters in ultra high definition. Not far removed, reaching skyward, the crater wall of Archimedes pops into view in bold relief against the smooth flatlands that transverse the distance between it and the Apennine Mountains. This is lunar observing at its best – HD style. The gas giant Jupiter displays its swirling equatorial bands in high-definition with festoons and tonality within the bands. The great spot is clearly visible, discreetly contrasted from the surrounding Jovian landscape. Prominent deep-space nebula yield improved definition in gaseous outer extensions. Stars in globular clusters resolve to pinpoints. This is just the beginning of an incredible journey of exploration possible with a Black Diamond 100 ED.

 

Metallic High-Transmission Lens Coatings 

Each air-to-glass lens surface has exotic anti-reflection metallic coatings applied to ensure optimum light through-put of approaching 99.5%. The proprietary Sky-Watcher “Metallic High-Transmission Coatings” (MHC) are the finest photon anti-rejection coatings in their class.

Light-Baffled Optical Systems

The objective lens cell is light-baffled to reject stray, unfocused light. The draw tube is likewise baffled to optimum contrast. The tube interior is flat blackened to help prevent unfocused internal light reflections from reaching the focal plane.insure

Precision 2” Dual Speed Crayford Focuser as Standard

Optical focus is achieved by means of a mechanically ultra-smooth, backlash-free, precision 2” Dual Speed Crayford Focuser-assembly. This focuser offers fine and ultra-fine focusing adjustments.

Tube Materials

The optical tube material is rolled steel, powder-coated reflective gloss black with gold fleck accent. The front and back cells are -aluminium painted white, or black. cast

Telescope Tube Attachment Hardware

The optical tube comes with attachment hardware that allows it to be securely fastened to any Sky-Watcher mount. The quick-release tube rings provided with Black Diamond 100 EDarecast-aluminium, painted white

Included Components for Selected Models

Black Diamond 100 ED is supplied with backlash-free 2” Dual Speed Crayford Focusers and quality foam-lined Aluminium carrying cases as standard equipment.

MOUNT FEATURES

Sky-Watcher offers simple solutions for users who would like to attach their smaller telescope to a convenient computerized system but do not wish to deal with the weight of the HEQ5 or EQ6 mount. The NEQ5 Pro mounts use the same Go-To system found in the HEQ5 and EQ6 Pros - SynScan. It allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies with a touch of few buttons.

The NEQ5 SynScan mounts are the perfect instrument for novice visual observers to enjoy astronomy with minimal setup time and in-depth knowledge of the night sky.  For novice users, the user-friendly menu allows automatic slewing to 42900+ objects. 

Positioning Accuracy up to 1 arc minute. Accuracy enhanced by software collimation error (mount mechanical error) compensation.

Stepper motors with 1.8° step angle and 32 micro steps driven.

Slewing speed up to 3.4°/sec (800X).

Guiding speed selectable from 0.25X, 0.50X, 0.75X, or 1X.

Object database containing complete Messier, NGC, and IC catalogues.

Periodic Error Correction.
