Skywatcher EVOSTAR 72ED OTA


Quick Overview

The Skywatcher EVOSTAR 72ED OTA is a compact ED doublet refracting telescope, giving good colour correction and minimal chromatic aberration. Equally at home as a grab and go spotter or a smaller astrophotographic telescope, the Evostar 72 ED is a worthy addition to the Skywatcher ED range, making decent ED optics available to a wider audience at a lower price.

This telescope features a Crayford style dual speed 2" focuser (with 11:1 reduction) and comes with Skywatcher's MHC coatings for the optimum in light transmission. Skywatcher claim their “Metallic High-Transmission Coatings” (MHC) are "the finest photon anti-rejection coatings in their class."

The telescope is supplied in a small carrying case, with space for further accessories.
