The SkyWatcher Explorer 250PDS Parabolic Newtonian Reflector incorporates the same superb mirror set as the Explorer-250P 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.

Amazing Clarity This is my first telescope. I have been using the 250pds for 2 months for viewing and astrophotography. Its not too bulky and easy to handle on your own. I have been amazed at the clarity of the objects that I can see and the photographs I've taken. The two speed focuser is great to use. (18/08/2017) Neil L - Bridgend, South Wales
