“International Year of Astronomy Special Edition”
The Sky-Watcher Heritage-76 has been specially designed to celebrate theInternational Year of Astronomy (IYA) and the 400th Anniversary of Galileo’sfirst telescope. This is not only a highly functional precision opticalinstrument but also a beautiful collector’s piece, desk or shelf ornament, andideal gift.
The beautiful, luxurious tube graphics depict a richly historical theme. Theimages have been specially designed to symbolise Galileo and his conflict withthe Catholic church. Galileo Galilei’s public championing of Copernicus’ theoryof heliocentrism, which was contrary to the geocentric beliefs at the time,eventually led to him being denounced to the Roman Inquisition. He wassubsequently tried, suspected of heresy, forced to recant, and spent the rest ofhis life under house arrest. Of course Galileo, “The father of modern science”and “The father of modern observational astronomy” was proved right in the end.
The telescope tube is also adorned with the words “Galileo 400” and“International Year of Astronomy” as well as key dates in the lifetime ofGalileo.
The telescope comes equipped, as standard, with a 5x magnification Finderscope,for the easy location of night sky objects.

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.
