The Skywatcher N 200/1000 Telescope

Are you a big fan of astrophotography? Are you looking for the right instrument to explore the deep sky? We present to you, here, the N 200/1000 telescope by Skywatcher.

This tool is very popular with amateur astronomers who wish to learn about this universe and give in to their passion by using fairly powerful and robust equipment.

Do not hesitate to read this sheet carefully to discover the technical specificities of this tool.

The technical characteristics of this instrument

Are you looking for optical equipment that offers significant versatility for the stars? In this guide, we present to you the Skywatcher N 200/1000 telescope. This tool is highly coveted for its reliability. Discover, below, its technical characteristics as well as its performance.


The Skywatcher N200/1000 telescope is an ideal instrument for discovering the deep sky and doing a good planetary exploration. Its user can also take advantage of its excellent optics on its polar finder. Indeed, thanks to its 200 mm diameter opening, this equipment allows the observer to detect many more details than smaller models. It has 78% more collecting power than a 150mm telescope. It thus offers the possibility of detecting the spiral arms of galaxies.

Furthermore, objects are reproduced with great sharpness due to the parabolic primary mirror and its limited curvature effect. The 52 mm secondary mirror with its thin fixing arms offers excellent contrasts maintained at an optimal level. All these technical characteristics therefore allow the user of this telescope to enjoy sharp and bright planetary observations.

With a lens aperture ratio of f/5, this equipment belongs to the  Fast Newtons category. Therefore, it is ideal for photography.

The mount

Being an upgraded version of the EQ-5, this mount is ideal for big optics and night sky discoveries. Indeed, it is possible to make fine adjustments in right ascension and declination. It is also possible to make manual adjustment with rotary knobs. This mount is also ideal for beginners in astrography. Coupled with additional options such as a GoTo kit or motorization, this telescope offers long exposures and allows you to enjoy beautiful images of nebulae and galaxies.

Advantages of the Skywatcher N 200/1000

The Skywatcher N 200/1000 telescope is an equipment that offers you several advantages. First of all, it is equipment that offers its user high optical power. It also stands out for a fairly robust structure  which resists well to vibrations and wind during observation. This great stability makes it possible to enjoy sharp and precise images.

This equipment is designed with a refined design that makes it a real gem. Indeed, this instrument displays  a very aesthetic and neat black color. It also has elegant lines. Thanks to its fine branches and its secondary mirror, the user of this tool can benefit from very contrasting images. Its bright optics give excellent results in astrophotography.

The disadvantages of the Skywatcher N 200/1000

Although it is easy to assemble this telescope for a neophyte, its installation method is not very intuitive. Therefore, it requires a lot of concentration. What we like less about this equipment is its weight of 32 kg. Despite the fact that it guarantees good stability for the tool, it constitutes a brake on its mobility. So it is difficult to move and transport it.

Who is this telescope for?

The Skywatcher N 200/1000 tool is equipment intended primarily for beginners and amateur astronomers. It may also be one of their best purchases in this universe. Indeed, it is the ideal equipment to help them adopt a progressive behavior in their observations. They will also appreciate the great stability and solidity of this instrument. Thus, they can handle it easily and without moderation. This telescope can operate in a fairly wide field of application: planets, nebulae, galaxies, moons, the sun (if coupled with an adequate filter). These beginners in the world of astronomy can therefore enjoy long hours of observation of the sky.
