Recommended Retail Price: R12,511.50

Introducing the Skywatcher Skyliner 200P FlexTube Auto-Tracking Fully-Motorised 8" Dobsonian. It is the Ultimate in Dobsonian design, the patented collapsible FlexTube™ system with a 200mm parabolic primary mirror for ultimate performance & portability, has now been combined with powerful dual-axis servo motors and encoders in the base unit. Now enjoy the luxury of Automatically Slewing and Tracking celestial objects, with the FlexTube's precision diffraction-limited optics with easy handset commands. Never before has owning a large high quality telescope been so convenient.

Now you don't need to worry about constantly repositioning the telescope with the addition of AutoTracking. Objects no longer drift through the eyepiece field of view, leaving you to observe more critically and at your own pace.

The convenience of AutoTracking opens up the possibility of lunar and planetary imaging - without the need for enormous Equatorial mounts or the fuss of polar alignment.

The AutoTracking handset allows you to set the local latitude, enhancing the tracking accuracy for astronomical targets. The controller has 6 different slewing speeds - 32x, 64x and 600x when tracking is turned off and Guide (1x) Slow (4x) and Fast (8x) when tracking is activated. Because each axis has encoders, the Skywatcher Skyliner 200P can still be moved manually over large areas of sky. Once your target is centred in the eyepiece activate the tracking and you are ready to observe.

You still get to enjoy the convenience of Skywatcher's Flex Tube design so the Skywatcher Auto-Tracking Fully-Motorised 8" Dobsonian will fold down to a more compact size for transportation and storage.
