- The set for knowledgeable explorers -
The set is the right one if you like to discover something new and would like to become familiar with unknown fields of knowledge. At the same time, you want to track down a lot in the sky and really get started in the hobby of astronomy. Incl. successful astrophotography e.g. with an existing DSLR camera. For this, the lens can be removed and connected via a bayonet adapter directly to the telescope.
The telescope of this set is a 8'' Skywatcher Explorer 200PDS 200/1000.
The parabolic main mirror of the telescope in conjunction with the relatively small secondary mirror ensures a very good field of vision & focus for sharpness and high contrast.
Therefore, not only a bright image of deep sky objects is a pleasure. Also Moon and Planets offer a wealth of detail (fine craters and grooves on the moon, cloud bands on Jupiter or the rings of Saturn, for example) that will delight you in every area of astronomical observations.
The longer focal length is advantageous because you do not always need an additional Barlow lens for higher magnifications. This is used at very high magnifications, if the visibility conditions (low air movement, good transparency of the sky ...) allow it.
Deep Sky objects are good to watch, like the galaxies (M81, M82) in the Big Dipper, the Leo triplet (M66) or the globular cluster M13, not to mention the Orion Nebula.
The Newton has a precise 2 '' Crayford extract, including a reduction to 1.25 ''. This Crayford extract is superior to the conventional tooth and drive of cheaper telescopes, it is more durable and allows a much more accurate adjustment of sharpness. Since the drawer is ball-bearing, heavy and accurate adjustments are guaranteed for heavy accessories. The adaptation of a camera is not a problem.
The GoTo mount has everything you need: A stable mount with good tracking and carrying capacity for larger equipment and thus enough reserves for sophisticated astrophotography. The EQ6 carries devices up to a weight of 20 kg.

GoTo mount N-EQ6-R:
The EQ6-R is a massive GoTo mount for amateur astronomical use with heavy devices containing over 13,000 objects in its GoTo database.

Zoom Eyepiece 8 - 24mm:
No annoying eyepiece change necessary, because the Seben Zoom eyepiece unites several different eyepiece sizes to one. By fine rotation on the eyepiece you can view the object in the viewfinder (24mm) and can then zoom easily (up to 8mm).
More details can be found at: Seben Zoom Okular 8-24mm
Deluxe Barlow lens 2x:
With the achromatic Barlow lens, you can look at planets closer. This Barlow allows a 2x magnification and its T2 thread the connection of a SLR camera.

Variable Moon Filter:
It is often underestimated how bright the moon is in a telescope. The polarized lunar filter not only protects your eyes, it also provides clear contrasts and detailed viewing of objects. The highlight, the brightness can be adjusted.
