About this product

The new Skywatcher Explorer-250P DS has the same superb parabolic primary mirror as the original Explorer-250P 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.

Great scope

This an easy way to get a decent aperature in an easy to handle length. I already had a mount so it's a cost effective option. Set up no problem and delivered awesome views of nebulas, star clusters and planets. Big eyepiece is great too. Very happy!
