The Sky-Watcher Explorer-200P Telescope with EQ5 Mount is a Sky-Watcher Black Diamond Newtonian Reflector. These all feature 0.5mm ultra-thin secondary mirror supports to reduce diffraction spikes and light loss, together with high quality Paraboloidal primary mirrors to eliminate spherical aberration. The mirrors are parabolised to bring all the light rays to the same focal point to produce sharp, contrasty images which are full of detail. Ideal for Planetary and deep sky observation.
The EQ5 Equatorial mount is very sturdy and provides excellent precision and stability and a host of other useful features for the serious astronomer. The mount rests firmly on a large, adjustable stainless steel pipe tripod with accessory tray. Supplied complete with a bubble level, latitude adjuster with micrometer scale and an azimuth polar-alignment adjuster. This Mount also features engraved aluminium setting circles and manual slow motion tracking controls. An optional polar-scope is available for aiding in polar alignment. Optional single-axis and dual-axis D.C. motor drives can be installed for auto-tracking purposes. Maximum payload approx 9kg.
