The award winning Sky-Watcher EXPLORER-200P (EQ5) is a fantastic choice for intermediate-to-advanced astronomers but also suitable for the very serious adult beginner. With a much larger 200mm of light gulping aperture combined with its superb parabolic optics and superior resolving power, even feinter objects can be viewed. This telescope is a highly capable all-rounder with superb performance for the observation of the Moon, planets, nebulae, galaxies, star clusters, double stars etc. Supplied with the EQ5 equatorial mount, which when polar aligned, will allow you to easily track objects as they move across the night sky via its slow motion controls.


"The Explorer-200P passed all our tests with flying colours and was a delight to use both optically and mechanically... The overall stability of the system impressed us...The mount was the most stable in the test with no flexing at all...The quality of its views just pushed it ahead of the Europa, giving us a very enjoyable look at all of our test objects."
