Skywatcher - Explorer-200PDS Dual-Speed Newtonian with EQ-5 PRO GOTO Mount
200mm (8”) f/5 Parabolic Dual-Speed Go-To Newtonian Reflector
The new Sky-Watcher EXPLORER-200PDS Newtonian reflector incorporates the same superb mirror-set as the Explorer-200P Black Diamond series, but with two significant advantages. A dual-speed 10:1 ratio focuser is now included for excellent focusing precision. Also the tube length has been slightly shortened to optimise performance for prime-focus photography.
Even better performance for astrophotography and visual use can be achieved when used in combination with Sky-Watcher’s Newtonian coma corrector (SKY-20233).
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 EQ5 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 at the touch of a button.
The EQ5 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. More feautures
