With over 8 inches of light gathering power and a low focal ratio (3.9), this Carbon Fiber Newtonian 208mm is capable of bringing distant, faint treasures to high resolution at a very generous field of view. With the addition of the White EXOS2-GT GoTo Computerized German Equatorial Mount, easily bring family and friends on the cosmic journey with you.
Use of this Newtonian is made much simpler with Explore Scientific's no-tool collimation set up, which features an easily-adjustable mechanism.
All optical surfaces are treated with high quality EMD coating, which virtually eliminates light scatter.
The telescope comes with a soft carrying case, cradle rings with handle and a Vixen-style dovetail base, which is compatible with a host of mounts on the market. A base is installed for an ES Finder Scope, which can purchased separately.
