Skywatcher Explorer-200PDS 200mm f/5 with EQ-5 EQ Mount

£568.99

Quick Overview

The SkyWatcher Explorer-200PDS 200mm f/5 with EQ-5 EQ Mount 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 and the tube length has been slightly shortened to optimise performance for prime-focus photography. This version comes on the acclaimed Skywatcher EQ5 German Equatorial mount, which whilst in manual configuration here, can be upgraded to either dual axis drives or a full Synscan Goto system.
