Skywatcher EVOSTAR 72ED OTA


Quick Overview

PLEASE NOTE: this telescope is out of stock in the UK until end of November 2019.  We are currently taking preorder sales, though will not be able to supply until then.

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.
