Furthermore, the Virtuoso™ mount can be upgraded to GoTo by purchasing aSynscan™ AZ GoTo handset and cable, allowing 42,900+ night sky objects to beautomatically found from its extensive database.
As well as its superb astronomical functionality, the Virtuoso™ mount has a lotof other clever features for photography (camera not included):
Camera Cruising:Take photographs automatically with your DSLR atup to 6 preset positions. The mount will stop at each predetermined positionand automatically trigger the camera’s shutter release. (Canon-D electronicshutter release cable supplied but other Skywatcher cables are readilyavailable)

Features High Quality Parabolic Primary Mirrors to eliminate sphericalaberrations inherent in 'fast' focal lengh reflectors with spherical primarymirrors. The mirrors are parabolized to bring all the light rays to the samefocal point to give sharp, constrasty images, which are full of detail.
SKY-WATCHER DELUXE MIRROR COATINGS
Most reflectors today usually have a coat of aluminium as the mirror surfaceand then an overcoat of silicon monoxide or silicon dioxide to protect it.Silicon dioxide produces a much more durable coat than silicon monoxide butrequires specialisedequipment to apply it and is therefore more expensive.Protection is needed, because in most reflectors, the mirror is open to theelements and deterioration of the reflective layer reduces the resolution ofthe telescope.ALL Sky-Watcher reflectors are Multi-Coated with Silicon Dioxideas standard for Optimum Durability and Long Term Performance.
