    EVOSTAR DS-PRO ED APOCHROMATIC REFRACTORS

    "Ade Ashford Says…
    While the traditional achromatic refractor offers good correction for chromatic aberration (false prismatic colours around bright objects), the discerning observer and astrophotographer will appreciate the near-perfect optical correction provided by the EVOSTAR DS-PRO series. Not only do these instruments look stunning in their black-diamond livery, but their objectives composed of Japanese FPL-53 ED and Schott crown glass will deliver image quality to match."

  • 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)
  • Ade Ashford Says..."Having tested and reviewed a wide range of astronomical telescopes over the last couple of decades, for me there's one manufacturer that's risen above the rest in terms of delivering a coherent range of uncompromising, well-conceived designs, embodying consistently good optics and sensibly engineered mounts at very competitive prices — that's Sky-Watcher!!"Ade Ashford BScAde Ashford has tested and reviewed astronomical equipment in a professional capacity for several publications, including Sky & Telescope, Astronomy Now & BBC Sky At Night Magazine.

“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, 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.
