Try a zoom! You get an 8,12,16,20,and 24mm all in one, with Baader optics. Just find your target with the 24mm then zoom in!! I love mine, suits the 200PDS fine. Plus I attach my DSLR directly to it!!

One may lose a little "quality" using a zoom but, IMHO, this is more than made up for by the versitility and flexibility of the baader zoom system.

YMMV.:)

I wouldn't worry about a very slight quality loss under our skies I doubt if anyone could tell the difference. The fov is also slightly smaller at 24mm. It's a good versatile EP. Mine woeks very well in my 200p and also my ED80 - very sharp !
