OPTIMISED FOR PRIME FOCUS ASTRO-PHOTOGRAPHY

 

 

The new Sky-Watcher EXPLORER-200PDS Newtonian Reflector incorporates the same superb mirror-set as the Explorer-200P 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 (SW20233).

 

 

 

*Note: the Explorer-200PDS has a larger 58mm secondary mirror, for enhanced field illumination, compared to the Explorer-200P which has a 52mm secondary.
