Sky-Watcher Skyliner 200P Dobsonian

Recommended Posts

Hi all, was wondering could I fit my skyline 200p dob on a Equatorial Mount and if so which would you recommend. As always many thanks in advance.

You can fit the tube into an eq mount (probably at least heq5/eq6 size) but be aware that an eq mount will rotate the telescope as it tracks. This means the focuser will rotate into different positions which can make observing uncomfortable unless you stop to rotate the tube each time you select a new target. 

If you are after simple tracking rather than goto capabilities you might find an eq platform for your dob base is a more useful device.
