Skywatcher Explorer 150PDS (EQ5 PRO) (f/5) 6inch Parabolic Newtonian

£839.00

Quick Overview

The Skywatcher Explorer 150PDS (EQ5 PRO) (f/5) 6inch Parabolic Newtonian is optimised for prime focus astrophotography and is supplied on the easy to use and transport EQ5-Pro Sysnscan mount, with full Goto functionality and Autoguiding capabilities.

The Skywatcher EXPLORER-150PDS Newtonian Reflector incorporates the same superb mirror-set as the Explorer-150P 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 astro-photography and visual use can be achieved when used in combination with Sky-Watcher’s Newtonian coma corrector (Prod.Code 20233), or other coma correctors such as the Explore Scientific HR Coma Corrector, or the Revelation Coma Corrector.
