Part Number:  10923/20981

200mm (8") f5 Parabolic Newtonian reflector with EQ5 SynScan Computerised GOTO Equatorial Mount.

Parabolic Primary Mirror

All Sky-Watcher f/5 (‘fast’) Newtonian Reflectors and Dobsonian models feature high-quality parabolic primary mirrors to eliminate spherical aberrations inherent in ‘fast’ focal length reflector. The mirrors are parabolized to bring all the light rays to the same focal point to give sharp, contrasty images.

Ultra-Thin Secondary Mirror Supports

All Sky-Watcher f/5 Newtonian Reflectors feature 0.5mm ultra-thin secondary mirror supports to reduce diffraction spikes and loss of contrast.

Very good telescope, but needs upgrades
Wednesday, 3 March 2021  | 

I have had this telescope for 4 years.
First of all, I can say, this telescope has a little bit of everything.

You can use it for visual and astrophotography, but......

For visual use everything is ok to me. For better performance, a better focuser is needed.

You can shoot quite good images with this setup, but you need to do everything in perfect conditions. Very good weather, without any wind. Perfect polar alignment and etc....
Planets, moon, all bigger and brighter objects are ok to shoot. For deep sky, its different.
1. For good pictures, first you need better mount for this scope. Cause if you put guiding scope and etc., it becomes shaky. And its kind of difficult to shoot long exposures.
2. Of course, field flattener or reducer is a must to have.
3. Better focuser
4. Dew shield

If you live in a house and have possibility to build stationary tripod or pole for your mount, then performance will be better.

Overall rating for me - 5 stars. I have had very exciting 4 years of exploring the universe.

After the experience using this telescope, I learned a lot about what I need to choose next

And don`t forget to maintain all parts of your mount

Excellent scope however the time dial is loose...keeps dropping down to the Polar scope dial.
If not for that I would score 5/5
