About this product

Designed with the discerning astrophotographer in mind, Sky-Watcher’s top-of-the-line Esprit refractors deliver the kind of imaging performance one would expect from telescopes costing thousands of dollars more. With the Esprit’s three-element, air-spaced objective lens design, false color is virtually eliminated, yielding exceptional contrast and sharpness. Each element is fully multi-coated with Sky-Watcher’s proprietary Metallic high-transmission Coatings™ (MHTC)™, producing a transmission rate that rivals any refractor on the market. 

In addition to superb optics, all Esprits feature exclusive dual-speed, Helinear track focusers, which provide smooth, rock-solid focusing with zero image shift. Using a captain’s wheel design all focusers can be rotated, giving astrophotographers flexibility when framing their image. 

As is customary, Sky-Watcher supplies everything you need to get out under the stars, including a 2-element field corrector, which guarantees a flat field across the entire imaging plane. All Esprit refractors also come with an 8x50 right-angle finderscope, 2-inch star diagonal, M48 camera adapter, mounting hardware, and padded case.

Simply Awesome!

I have read many good reports and seen many YouTube recommendations and now I can join the praise for this awesome piece of kit! This scope exceeded my expectations for clarity,build quality and what you actually get. At just short of 10kg it’s a solid beast and needs a equally solid mount . It comes in a solid “roadie” style hard case on casters. Inside you get along with your scope, all the adapters including canon eos dslr adapter,a nice 2” dielectric star diagonal with 1.25 adapter ,a very sharp 9x50 angled finder scope, dedicated 2 element field flattener even a 28mm 2” eyepiece and more . I could be here all day praising this magnificent beast but in short this is one very classy triplet for very good value for your money. It DOSE live up to its well deserved reputation as excellent quality and value for its class - Highly recommended if your serious about your astrophotography!
