Skywatcher 200mm (8″) F/5 Newtonian Telescope with Equatorial Motorized HEQ5 GoTo Mount
The Optics: Awarded by the BBC’s Sky At Night Magazine, the Sky-Watcher 200P Newtonian telescope optics are an excellent choice for the aspiring and experienced astronomer, but are equally suitable for the very interested beginner. With its large 200mm aperture and superb parabolic mirror, even fainter objects can be observed with its high power. This telescope is a powerful all-rounder for observing the moon, planets, nebulae, star clusters, double stars and much more. The Mount: For amateur astronomers looking for a high quality equatorial mount with the convenience of a computer controlled GoTo system, the Sky-Watcher HEQ5 Pro SynScan™ is the right choice. The HEQ5 Pro SynScan™ was also developed with the beginner in astronomy in mind. With the user-friendly push-button hand control, finding and observing objects in the sky becomes as easy as a walk in the park. The hand control allows the telescope to be aimed at the desired object or simply to start a guided tour of the night sky with the push of just one button. The user-friendly menu contains a database with over 42,000 objects of the night sky. Even an inexperienced beginner can learn the diverse functions of the system in just a few observation nights. However, the HEQ5 SynScanTM mount also contains many functions for the experienced amateur astronomer. The positioning accuracy is up to 1 arc minute. Accuracy is improved by calibrating the software for mechanical errors. The stepper motors have a step angle of 1.8° with 64 microsteps. The maximum movement speed is 3.4° per second (800X). The mount includes an auto guiding interface for astrophotography. The guiding speed can be set to 0.25x, 0.50x, 0.75x and 1x. The database for GoTo positioning contains all objects from the Messier, NGC and IC catalogues.
