About this product

The Skywatcher 200/1000 comes with a EQ5 Aluminum mount and a great 2" 28mm eyepiece. 2" eyepieces offer a better experience than the 1.25" versions. Since this product has a Parabolic mirror, you can expect sharp and bright views of tons and tons of targets. 
Note: The first picture is not correct. The tube you receive with this kit is the 'upgraded' version with the photo reflector that has the dual speed focuser, fast f/ratio and top notch parabolic mirror. The way to tell is that this scope tube has been coated in gold which means it's been built to the highest level.

The OTA:
The new Skywatcher Explorer-200P DS has a superb parabolic primary mirror but features a 1.25"/2" Dual-Speed 10:1 ratio focuser for enhanced focus control and a shorter tube length with the secondary mirror positioned closer to the primary mirror for more convenient prime-focus photography.
