Sky-Watcher Classic 200P 8" Dobsonian Telescope

This is a really great telescope at a really great price. The weather has been a bit so-so since we put this together, and we only had a couple of nights to use it so far, but have had some good viewing sessions.

Does the job well for the price

I also have a Dobsonian, which is a great telescope to start with. But I wanted something that I could store easily and set up in more places. I also really wanted a Goto system. It doesn’t track as well as some really top-end mounts I've used, but I would buy this again. It's a great all-arounder.

My son enjoys it

My son is studying astronomy at school, so we hauled out an older telescope we bought him when he was younger. We could never figure out how to see anything with it and this time we didn't have any better luck. So, I decided to buy this because I heard it was beginner friendly. I don't know much about lenses and we're pretty new to this, so I can't be too technical. But we've been impressed. We were able to use the Sky Align to get oriented, and we saw quite a lot. We first looked at some serious detail on the moon, and my son was able to locate Saturn and even see its rings! Needless to say we are really happy about it. I hooked my cellphone up to the eyepiece and took some nice photos. I know its not as good as a DSLR, but still fun. We're enjoying it and can't wait to discover more.

This shroud covers it all.

This shroud blocks out all of the light trespass in my area. It has two slots for the eyepiece and the finder scope. A must have item for this instrument.
