Sky-Watcher EVOSTAR-80ED DS-PRO (HEQ5)

Sky-Watcher EVOSTAR-80ED DS-PRO (OTA) + HEQ5 Mount
80mm (3.1”) f/600 Fluorite ED Apochromatic Refractor Telescope

The new EVOSTAR DS-PRO Series ED Apochromatic refractors in their stunning Black-Diamond livery, house premium optics of the same quality and performance level as our now legendary Equinox series, making them superb instruments for both imaging and visual observations.

Apochromatic Refractors, due to their unobstructed, text-book like diffraction patterns, produce the sharpest, highest quality optical imaging available, bar-none, aperture for aperture, of any telescope optical system.

These high-end telescopes all feature a doublet objective lens. One element is made from premium Japanese Ohara FPL-53 Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass, which virtually eliminates chromatic aberration to deliver true colour reproduction. Top quality Schott glass is utilized for the Crown element.

Each air-to-glass lens surface has exotic anti-reflection metallic coatings applied, to ensure optimum light through-put of approaching 99.5%!!

The proprietary Sky-Watcher “Metallic High-Transmission Coatings” (MHC) are the finest photon anti-rejection coatings in their class.

The schott logoHighly commended

“Great all-round package...We were pleased to see the stat Altair pin-sharp across 85% of the field of view, with only slight trailing off near the edges...On deep-sky objects, the dual-speed Crayford focuser allowed us to gain fine, crisp views; particularly noteworthy was the Dumbell Nebula M27. The wide field of view also produced fine vistas of the Andromeda Galaxy...The focuser’s 1.25” adaptor had a nice touch: a DSLR camera attachment for imaging. Overall this telescope packs a lot of punch...a complete setup with lovely crisp optics” BBC Sky At Night Magazine
