Sky-Watcher 200N EQ5 PRO Manual Reflector Telescope S11520 Product Info

The Sky-Watcher 200N EQ5 PRO Manual Reflector Telescope S11520 is considered to be a beginner's dream telescope. The 200mm (8") reflector telescope is possibly the best loved and most often used telescope imagein the history of modern amateur astronomy. In terms of reflector telescopes, an 8 inch aperture is regarded as the stepping off point for serious astronomical studies. This Sky Watcher Telescope delivers excellent imaging quality suitable for viewing the solar system and deep space. Just by looking at the strong optical tube assembly and rigidly constructed mounting system, it concludes that Sky Watcher delivers serious performance at a price that can be afforded.

The classic Newtonian optical design of this Sky Watcher telescope utilizes a parabolic shaped mirror and an ellipse shaped diagonal mirror suspended by a holder and vane assembly in the front of the optical tube. The diagonal mirror projects the image through a perforation in the optical tube to the observing position at the focuser-assembly. The tube length of a classic reflector telescope is longer than that of a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope because it folds the focal length back on itself. Unlike the upright terrestrial image orientation provided by refractors and mirror-lens reflectors' the classic Newtonian presents images upside-down. However this is perfectly acceptable for astronomical use where directional orientation is relative. The powerful advantage of the Newtonian design is lower cost. Compared to a refractor or mirror-lens design of equal aperture a Newtonian provides higher resolution per dollar invested.
