I could be interested in this. Does it come with a case also?

Re: Andromeda Galaxy with Binoculars

Yeah, I saw it in 10x50s in relatively dark skies, could make it out naked eye also. If you can find the shape of Andromeda and follow the short arm you should find it after a few slow slow passes https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170821/7026bde940788b78081c54e65a210663.jpg Sent from my iPhone usin...

Re: Skywatcher 200p and AP

Hey, Incidentally, this would be the mount I would probably ultimately go for if I wanted to go EQ route: http://www.firstlightoptics.com/skywatcher-mounts/skywatcher-az-eq6-mount.html Nice and pricy but am I wrong in thinking that then I would have a pretty good setup for visual/imaging (I know I k...

Re: Skywatcher 200p and AP

Hi Clifford, Yeah, that's what comes with the 200P and 2x1.25" eyepieces on ca.skywatcher.com but the 200PDS leaves out the 1.25" adapter and gives 1x2" eyepiece. I thought that was a hint to stick with the 2". I guess what I was trying to do was get a good scope initially within my budget for gener...

Re: Skywatcher 200p and AP

Hi Guys, thanks for getting back, Kimo, why do you say too early? My thinking is it's within my budget now (on the dob) and in the future if I get more into it I have options to upgrade to goto dob and/or put it on a HEQ5 or better?

Apologies if this has been answered already but I'm looking for some information on the Skywatcher 200p/1200 scope.
