Sky-Watcher Equinox-80 PRO 80mm (3.1") f/500 Fluorite ED Apochromatic Refractor Optical Tube Assembly. The Sky-Watcher Equinox ED DS-PRO series is the name for the new generation of professional quality telescopes and mounts of the Sky-Watcher range, targeted at the most discerning and critical observers.The Sky-Watcher Equinox Series contain the same first class optics as used in the Evostar DS-PRO refractors, but housed in CNC machined hard-anodised tube assemblies. They feature rotatable, tension-adjustable dual-speed focusers and retractable dew-shields. Each telescope is manufactured to extremely high levels of optical and mechanical precision, undergoing very strict quality control procedures to ensure the highest standards of quality and performance are consistently maintained. They are exceptional high-performance instruments for visual use as well as astrophotography and CCD imaging. Please note, this is an Optical Tube Assembly only, mount and tripod are available separately.
Sky-Watcher Equinox-80 Features:
World Exclusive Co-Branding Agreement with Schott.
Selected high-end Sky-Watcher telescopes benefit from the inclusion of Schott glass in their construction. Schott is the recognised world leader in glass utilised for precision optical lens systems, including medical instrumentation and famous brand camera lenses. Sky-Watcher’s parent company signed a worldwide exclusive telescope co-branding agreement with Schott in March 2008.
The Equinox 80 is another excellent choice for astrophotography. Its fast, high-contrast optics and generous field of view make it an ideal instrument for studying larger clusters and star fields; – you can even use it with a common SCT focal reducer to achieve speeds down to f/4.5! But don’t be afraid to push up the magnification, too. Its crisp optics make it a strong performer on tight double stars, and it provides crisp, clear lunar and planetary images with no image breakdown, even at high powers.
Whatever your application, we’re sure that Sky-Watcher Equinox refractors will meet and exceed your most demanding performance requirements with their superior mechanics, high portability and razor-sharp colour-free optics.
Metallic High-Transmission Lens Coatings:
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.
