This high-end Evostar-72ED features a doublet objective lens with one Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass element.
Each air-to-glass surface has multiple anti-reflection coatings applied to ensure optimum light transmission, approaching 99.5%!
Sky-Watcher proudly claim their proprietary ‘Metallic High-Transmission Coatings’ (MHC) are the finest photon anti-rejection coatings in their class.
The short focal length with a wide field of view accepts a wider margin of error compared to a long focal length telescope and makes it easy for beginners to learn the basics of astrophotography.
This Deluxe Edition comes with a premium quality 2″ adapter with compression ring which offers secure attachment of diagonals, eyepieces or cameras.
NOTE: This telescope only comes with 1 pair of mounting rings, 1 dovetail bar and 1 aluminium case.
The following mirror diagonal and finder scope are optional items available at discounted prices if ordered with this telescope!
