Skywatcher Skyliner 200P Dobsonian£285.00
The UK's most popular Dobsonian telescope.
"Turning to Saturn, the view really took our breath away: we saw five moons, a clear-cut Cassini Division and a colour difference between the A and B rings. Not only that, but Saturn also displayed a prominent belt – with this scope planetary detail is certainly not compromised ...The Skyliner was a joy to use.”

“The Explorer 200p passed all our tests with flying colours and was a delight to use optically and mechanically ... The overall stability of the system impressed us: it had a rock-solid mount with the least amount of play in the slow-motion controls. The quality of its views just pushed it ahead of the [Orion Optics - DeLuxe] Europa, giving us a very enjoyable look at all of our test objects. For us, these tipped the balance to bring the Explorer-200P out on top.”
