9.5kg with standard rings and dovetail. We'll need to come back to you on other weights/dimensions. 

HTH,

That price...Wow!

The price is lower than anyone (including me!) expected. £2k would still have been impressive. Makes me wonder if it might increase later this year, after they have thoroughly disrupted the market 😁

(I am guessing, I don't know).

Regarding price. £1,699 is the launch price here in the UK but we'll monitor our competitors and price-match if we see any discounting 😇

For early adopters, if the price falls within 30-days of you buying one we will refund the difference in Gift Vouchers. (Only proviso being the dealer displaying a lower price must have stock).

Flipping heck, 1699!... Side glances at bank account. Now for the performance, can Skywatcher do it again? Let's see... I'm excited as a spectator.

I suspect this is going to fly off the shelves.  What a great price point to hit.

There is also a 0.85x reducer/flattener for astrophotography, am frantically adding that to our website now...

Oh my, oh my.

As per Chris Lock, I am excited as a fellow spectator; what an amazing price.
I look forward to the first first light reports.

So who's making the first pre-order then?

Decent quality 150mm doublet refractor and dedicated flattener for under £1,900!!!  That's seriously good value and if it performs anything like the others in the ED Pro range then this is a guaranteed winner.

£1649 at Harrison's- Limited stock. It just gets better and more tempting (can't be bothered to find the emoji - shocked face)

Wow, even though a new scope for me is years in the future, this just went top of the list!

Is it the same Focuser size/fitting as the ED 120?

That didn’t take long 😁

FLO’s price is reset to £1,649. I see to the reducer/flattener and rings & dovetail set have also been discounted so I have reduced those prices too. 

Will keep watching 🤓
