The optical quality of this apochromatic Skywatcher Evostar ED80 is simply fantastic for both visual observers and astrophotographers. The Extra Low Dispersion lens, with element in FPL-53 (Ohara, Japan), gives images without chromatism, clear and contrasted. You will get the best for both visual and astrophotography use. The Skywatcher Evostar ED80 is particularly suitable as the first astrographer thanks to the undisputed optical and mechanical qualities that have made it a best seller worldwide. The advantageous focal ratio and the possibility of reducing it with a dedicated flattener 0.85xaf / 6.3 make it perfect for astrophotography in the deep sky. The Sky-Watcher 80 ED also offers great visions of the moon and planets, thanks to the high contrast and sharpness offered.

The 2 “Crayford focuser with 1:10 gear ratio offers a high load capacity and excellent resistance even in the case of heavy loads. M56 external thread for use with third-party accessories or for the connection of the dedicated reducer / flattener.

For astrophotography you can decide to reduce it using the dedicated flattener / reducer 0.85x cod. AORID085-80 or use it with a native focal length.

Equipped with a 2 “dielectric diagonal treated with multilayer coating with high reflectivity. In this way the actual reflection is 99% (the normal diagonals generally reflect about 90% of the incident light). Includes 2 “-1.25” adapter with self-centering ring. Threaded to accommodate 2 “filters.

The equipment includes a 2 “LET 28mm eyepiece, a comfortable 8 × 50 finder with mini-Vixen base, rings and dovetail bar type EQ5 and a custom-made aluminum suitcase to hold all the accessories.
