The 203/1000 Sky-Watcher Newtonian reflector can be a lifetime telescope for an amateur astronomer. The tube lenght is just 1 meters and weights less than 10kg and is a very versatile telescope. Visually stars down to magnitude 14 can be seen and details can be observed in
and nebulae. Excellent for
lunar and planetary observations
as well, and can be used for observing double stars as well.
Can be used for astrophotography thanks to the 2" Crayford focuser. The fast F/5 optics is useful for deepsky photography as well while the 1000mm focal length shows details in galaxies and nebulae. The 2" focuser can accept other accessories (like coma corrector).
The mirrors can be adjusted without any tools quickly and simply (a collimation laser or collimating eyepiece is recommended).
The accessories included (when purchasing the telescope together with a mount):
- 2" Crayford focuser (1:10 microfocuser is available)
- 9x50 achromatic spring load finderscope
- 10mm and 25mm Barium eyepieces
- 2x Barlow lens (achromatic with T2 thread)
For the GoTo version we highly recommend the Skywatcher Wi-Fi unit (SynScanWifi), with which you can control your telescope via smartphone or tablet. Just plug the Wi-Fi unit into the hand controller slot and download the free App (Android or iOS) - it is ready to use.
