The SkyWatcher Explorer 150PDS Parabolic Newtonian Reflector incorporates the same superb mirror set as the Explorer-150P Black Diamond Series, but with two significant advantages. A Dual-Speed 10:1 ratio focuser is now included for excellent focusing precision. Also the tube length has been slightly shortened to optimise performance for prime-focus photography.
Includes 6x30 finder, 25mm Eyepiece, Dual speed focuser and tube rings!Even better performance for astro-photography and visual use can be achieved when used in combination with Sky-Watcher's Newtonian coma corrector (Prod.Code 20233)Specifications:Magnification (with eyepiece supplied) x30Highest Practical Power (Potential) x300Diameter of Primary Mirror 150mmTelescope Focal Length 750mm (f/5)Eyepiece Supplied 25mm (1.25"/31.7mm)6x30 FinderscopeParabolic Primary Mirror2" (50.8mm) Dual-Speed 10:1 Crayford Focuser0.5mm Ultra-Thin Secondary Mirror Supports33% more Light-Gathering than 130mm
Good value for dual photography/visual Bought this as an upgrade to my old 130mm Celestron. Good for the money, with a decent focuser. The first had a small bend in the spider vanes, but Harrisions had it replaced promptly. 4 stars as scope was not collimated, but managed to do that quite easily. Excellent service from Harrisons.
