The advantages in a nutshell:
- relatively high light gathering power thanks to 200mm aperture
- resistant to the effects of vibration and wind
- diffraction limited parabolic primary mirror
- high-contrast image due to thin secondary mirror spider vanes and small secondary mirror
- well suited to astrophotography due to the 'fast' optics
Included in delivery:
- OTA with 200mm aperture and 1000mm focal length
- 2 inch Crayford focuser
- 10mm and 25mm (1.25") eyepieces
- 2X Barlow lens (1.25")
- 9x50 finder
- prism rail for quick mounting
The NEQ-5 mount:
This mount is a further development of the EQ-5, in a white design. It provides a solid platform for most large telescopes and is excellent for exploring the night sky. Once you have aligned the parallactic mount on the Pole Star, you can easily sight on an object, position it in the field of view, and track it using the slow motion control knobs provided. Fine adjustment is possible in right ascension and declination. The polar elevation at the observing site can be set using the fine scale provided and adjusted perfectly by using two screws. Both a polar finder and electric motors for both axes plus a control unit can be retrofitted: the NEQ-5 is suitable not only for visual observing, but also for getting started in astrophotography. Long exposure astrophotography is also possible with the optional upgrades available, such as the motor kit or the GoTo kit. With a little practice, you will soon be able to produce successful images of galaxies and nebulae.
Included in delivery:
- mount with knobs for manual fine tracking adjustment
- sturdy tubular steel tripod (height adjustable from 97cm to 121cm)
- pole finder
- extra brace with eyepiece tray
- suitable counterweights
