The N 200/1000 telescope - The 200mm aperture allows the observer to see a wealth of detail when deep sky observing. With 78% more light available than a 150mm telescope even the delicate spiral arms of many galaxies and structures in nebulae may be observed. Even globular clusters, such as the famous M13 cluster in Hercules, can be clearly resolved right out to the edge.
The main parabolic mirror is diffraction-limited, providing a sharp image. The very high-contrast image provided by the optics is optimized by use of a small secondary mirror and thin secondary mirror vanes. This also means that equally sharp and bright planetary observing is possible at higher magnifications.
The robust focuser allows the use of two inch eyepieces, and an adapter is included to allow 1.25" eyepieces to be used. Two of these eyepieces are included with the telescope, allowing you to get started observing right away.
The telescope has an aperture ratio of f/5, making this telescope a member of the of the 'fast Newtonian' class instruments. These optics make the telescope particularly good for astrophotography. The eight millimetre finder shows you objects that are invisible to the naked eye alone, and helps you to navigate in the night sky.
The advantages in a nutshell
- high light gathering power thanks to the 200mm aperture
- parabolic main mirror
- well suitable for astrophotography due to its fast optics
All new Celestron mount AVX
The new Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for smaller telescopes. Now your smaller telescope can take advantage of All-Star Polar Alignment and autoguider support. You'll be able to track through long exposures using permanently programmable periodic error correction. Image across the meridian without doing a meridian flip, so you can seamlessly image the best part of night sky. The AVX features significantly larger base castings than our previous design, improving stability under heavier loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can handle slight load imbalances with ease.
It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.
