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.

High-Precision Indexed Focuser: Dual-Speed machined Crayford focuser. 360-degree adjustable for easy framing of objects for photography. Graduated scale on drawtube for fast and precise focusing with CCD or DSLR cameras.

Are you eligible for finance?

Applicants must be:

  • Aged 18 years or older from the application date
  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
    • Not working through disability.
    • Self-employed.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
