  • 1 x 80/600 Evostar 80ED Doublet Refractor OTA

Evostar 80

The Sky-Watcher 80/600 Evostar ED Doublet Refractor OTA is a refractor telescope that well designed for wide-field astronomical observation of prominent nebulae, star clusters, and galaxies from a dark-sky location. Come with focal ratio f/7.5, it can be used as an astrograph for sky photography or telephoto lens. The Ultra high contrast of this Sky-Watcher ED Refractor allows the subtlest of details to be easily scrutinized under conditions of good seeing.

Metallic high-transmission Lens Coatings (MHC)
Each air-to-glass lens surface has been coated by Sky-Watcher’s proprietary MHC. An anti-reflection metallic coatings ensure optimum light transmission approaching 99.5%.

Light-Baffled Optical Systems
The objective lens cell of this 80/600 Evostar ED Doublet OTA is light-baffled to reduce stray & unfocused light to insure optimum contrast. The interior of the tube is flat blackened to prevent unfocused internal light reflections from reaching the focal plane.

Precision 2” Crayford Focuser
This precision 2″ Crayford Focuser is mechanically ultra-smooth and backlash-free and offers you a fine and ultra-fine focusing adjustment.

Tube Materials
The optical tube material is rolled steel, powder-coated reflective gloss black with a gold fleck accent. The front and back cells are cast aluminium painted white & black.

Telescope Tube Attachment Hardware
The optical tube comes with attachment hardware that allows it to be securely fastened to any Sky-Watcher mount. The quick-release tube rings provided with Evostar ED80 are cast aluminum, painted white.

Sky-Watcher EQM35 Goto Combo Mount is three mounts in one.

For astronomers taking the next steps in visual observing and astrophotography its a high precision, easy to use Goto tracking mount. More seasoned users will appreciate extra load carrying capacity for visual use and short exposure astrophotography in the mounts Alt-Az mode. the beginner and experienced astronomers, ideal for smaller and medium-sized optical tubes.

  1. Equatorial GOTO long exposure astrophotography tracking mount

Development of the mid-range EQ3 mount popular in various forms with thousands of astronomers around the world for decades, the EQM-35 has considerable enhancements aimed at more precise guiding and better stability. An updated RA worm drive for improved tracking with 180 teeth compared for 130 on previous versions. The Dec drive is also a worm drive for smoother slewing.

Uprated bearings throughout and general stability enhancements were key to the new mount. PE (periodic error) correction has also been improved. A die cast ZL102T0 aluminium body has meant an increase in weight of just 0.5kg compared to the current EQ3 mount despite the increased stability and rigidity.

  1. 10Kg capacity Alt-Az GOTO tracking mount

The EQM-35 can work in Alt-Az mode.

Alt-Az mode doesn't require any polar alignment and is easier to set up. The mount will still automatically track celestial objects and is perfect for visual observing of the Moon, planets and deep sky targets. You can also use the EQM-35 in this mode for short exposure astrophotography such as capturing video of the planets and Moon for later stacking and processing.

Apart from easier setup, Alt-Az mode increases the carrying capacity of the EQM-35 to approx. 10kg

  1. Lightweight, portable tracking mount for DSRL photography

With a removable Dec assembly, the EQM-35 quickly converts into a heavy duty tracking mount for wide field or long exposure DSLR photography. In this lightened configuration you can even pack the EQM-35 into your hand luggage when travelling.

The EQM-35 is compatible with the complete range of Sky-Watcher DSLR mounting brackets and accessories.

When in either Equatorial or Alt-Az mode, the SynScan Go-To system allows full control in both axes with high precision pointing, allowing you to quickly and accurately locate objects across the night sky. The Go-To system can automatically slew the telescope on command toward planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, clusters and much more. The SynScan has 42,900 memorised celestial objects for an amazing journey in the night sky. The Deep Sky Tour function suggests a list of the most interesting deep sky objects currently visible, so even the novice astronomer can easily observe faint objects at the touch of a button.
