  • Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRS"I have used a great number of telescopes; some are good, some mediocre and some bad. To me the Sky-Watcher range of instruments are very good indeed, and suited to amateurs of all kinds – and they are not priced out of the market! Excellent value.
    Use them and enjoy them."
    Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRS (1923 to 2012)

“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

The new EVOSTAR DS-PRO Series ED Apochromatic refractors in their stunning Black-Diamond livery are 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.

This high-end telescope features 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.

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.
