I have one to compliment my 8" SW Dob and my SW ST 120mm refractor. It gives great views and handles 2" wide field EP's very well. I highly recommend one for both beginners and the more experienced astronomers if they want a relatively low cost ($299 Canadian) which could be taken as a borderline Grab & Go scope.
I wanted to put a couple pictures up for anyone looking to purchase this Telescope. I found it hard to find a photo of the focuser specifically. This is a friend's scope and I had the chance to try it out and I was pretty impressed how well it performed. The 35mm Panoptic was fantastic in this.

I notice the skywatcher looks exactly like the discontinued celestron 6in f8 dobs. A plus to me.

The 6" f/8 scopes are relatively light and easy to handle, once collimated they stay adjusted well, acclimate quickly, work with all but the crappiest eyepieces, and give very good performance on planets and DSOs. The Sky-Watcher looks like a really good option.
