The Orion Optics Europa 200 came to us as just the optical tube. We’ve added a homemade Dobsonian mount and laser red dot finder. It is an 8″ Newtonian reflecting telescope with a focal length of 1200mm so it’s f/6. We’ve kitted it with 20mm and 5.5mm lenses to allow a good range of objects to be observed. No batteries, no fuss. This push me, pull you light bucket is a good scope as you get familiar with the night sky. It is bulky and takes up space so ideally should be kept dry but close to the garden. e.g. a conservatory, garage, so it isn’t too much effort to lift outside.
