FOR SALE: Skywatcher Flextube 200P 200mm (8”) Synscan Computerized GoTo Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope & accessories – $1,900

Condition: Like new

  • With proper alignment, the Synscan computerized system finds thousands of celestial objects without any manual searching.
  • The Synscan system will track the object being observed, keeping it in the centre of the field of view.
  • Manual searching of objects is possible if one wishes to test one’s star-finding ability.
  • The flextube design allows for relatively easy transportation of the scope and its base in a mid-size SUV vehicle (rest base on its side in a Subaru Outback or equivalent vehicle)
  • The telescope accepts both 1.25” and 2’’ eyepieces.
  • This is not a beginner’s level telescope. Novices entering amateur astronomy should expect a high learning curve with this telescope.
  • Fully assembled. No assembly from boxes necessary. 

Original accessories:

  • The telescope come with a Plossl 25mm eyepiece, a Plossl 10mm eyepiece, an 8×50 finderscope, a 2” eyepiece adaptor, the Synscan computerized system and manuals. 

Bonus features:

  • A 2” 34 mm Sybony eyepiece providing a 2.05 degree true field of view at 35x magnification. Makes for spectacular wide starry sky viewing. My favourite eyepiece!
  • A Celestron Omni Barlow lens for doubling the magnification.
  • A SR 4mm (Symmetric Ramsden) eyepiece offering 300x power. This is a fairly low quality eyepiece which ultimately should be replaced for better quality.
  • Celestron Cheshire type collimator eyepiece for optical alignment.
  • Meade 4000 series moon filter.
  • Zhumell O-LLL filter for discerning nebulae.
  • Astro AI AC to DC Converter, 110v to 12v (necessary equipment).
  • 12 foot automobile auxiliary power outlet (plug-in) extension cord for when out in the field without a source of power for the telescope.
  • Custom made portable base for the telescope designed to:
    • wheel the telescope from points A to B when on a smooth surface (not on interlocking brick or rough surfaces) 
    • level the telescope on uneven terrain (e.g., grass, sloped driveway, etc.) with adjustment screws.
    • provide a higher base for the telescope  often promoting more comfortable viewing positions.

The owner would be pleased to instruct and to demonstrate to the buyer the operation of this telescope system.
