So did I really need to add a mm version to my collection? It sounded too good to be true.
The price for all these improvements? Just into four figures. So would the same approximate outlay buy mm of decent quality apochromatic aperture in a nice tube, made by a renowned budget equipment manufacturer? I decided to find out…. So, to make the purchase work I had to resolve to be particularly judgmental on the optical quality and the mechanical quality to see if it was indeed an overall improvement over the trusty ED The reason I was tempted in the first place was that many reports on the Internet stated that the views yielded greater resolution than the ED because of the larger aperture but did not yield any greater amount of false colour.
Now, some people say the ED is colour-free, and others will say that there is some there when viewing bright objects. As always, curiosity played a large part too. Eventually, the big brown box arrived. It opened to reveal an aluminium case, just slightly shorter than the one which housed my ED, wrapped in bubble wrap.
The case or rather the combined weight of the case and the contents was heavy! The case also sported a dent at one end, and the finish of the aluminium texture was not completely even, as it showed some bubbles at various places on the top. Still, it was the contents that concerned me most at that point.
Opening the case revealed something black and shiny. It was hard to make out as it was wrapped in white tissue paper, and placed inside a clear plastic bag. I carefully lifted it out, unwrapped the bag and removed the tissue.
Very shiny. Very black. Very smooth. Very even paint application. The silver trim around the rear edge of the sliding dew-shield and the front of the focuser were very tasteful and understated.
I was very impressed. The tube is noticeably heavier than the ED, but it is quite compact and not much larger overall than the mm model. Luckily, I just happened to have my Vixen GP mount all set up so I immediately mounted the tube onto it and tightened it all in place.
Concerned about the ability of the mount to hold such a beast, I kept prodding it to see if it wobbled at all, but no wobbles were to be seen. I had removed the slip-on aperture cap and extended the dew-shield by simply sliding it out until it clicked into place. The movement was smooth but not too easy. Just perfect. I did have to extend the counterweight along the counterweight shaft to balance it in Right Ascension, but this was easily done. I had a look at the objective — the business end.
Very nice green multi-coatings were evenly applied over the glass. There were no intrusions into the light path from anything like spacers or screws inside the tube. So far so good — I was still impressed.
I had a go at playing with the focuser. There are two large focus knobs, one on each side. Projecting out beyond the right hand knob is a smaller version.Shopping cart: 0 products Cash box Your account.

The results are crisp and high-contrast views and photos. The optical quality makes these models a reference for their class. This design allows a correction of the chromatic aberration to a minimum that is no longer disturbing, while using only two elements. The result is on the one hand high-contrast and sharp observations and photographs, on the other hand little mass and therefore little weight and a fast cooling down.
Very elegant design: Not only a look through this telescope fills with enthusiasm, but also the elegant finish convinces. The OTA itself has shimmering black paint, the focuser, tube rings and parts of the dewshield are cream white.
An anti-reflection metallic coatings which ensure optimum light-transmission approaching The interior of the tube is flat blackened to prevent unfocused internal light reflections from reaching the focal plane. It allows very fine focusing what is especially important for astro photography. High performance telephoto lens The very good optical performance can for astro photography be further enhanced by installing the optional TS field flattener linked below.
It makes this telescope a high-performance astro imager with exceptional definition over the full field without vignetting. No reviews by eKomi at this time. Eyepieces: HR9.

The telescope will give you incredibly beautiful and sharp images. The Skywatcher Evostar is a refractor telescope. Many amateur astronomers prefer a good refractor, also known as lens telescope, for this telescope offers sharp, diffraction-free high-contrast images. The refractor is mainly used to observe moons, planets and stars.
SkyWatcher Evostar A lot of the properties of the SkyWatcher Evostar are similar to those of the Skywatcher Equinox series, making the Evostar an amazing instrument for observing the night sky. The SkyWatcher Evostar is available in six different models. You can choose from various tripods each with their own functionalities. When you choose the Skywatcher Evostar OTA, you only get the tube assembly; the tripod can be subsequently ordered. The EQ tripod is the bigger brother of the EQ2 tripod.
EQ3 has a bigger and heavier mounting but still has the aluminium legs of the EQ2. The stability of the tripod is essential for ease of use. Instable tripods act like a tuning fork and cause trembling in the eyepiece, which hampers your observation. Fortunately, the Skywatcher EQ is very stable. However, this tripod is equipped with a GoTo mount which enables you to search for objects with a remote control.
The telescope will automatically rotate towards these objects. Telescopes equipped with this tripod are mainly used by amateur astronomers with ambitions in photography as a tracking motor is essential in this discipline. Heavy mount: essential for ease of use The stability of the tripod is essential for ease of use.
In the hand controller about 42, objects are stored, including planets, stars, double stars, variable stars and user objects. Some features: The Synscan V. The tripod is also equipped with pointing accuracy enhancement and is capable of storing the alignment with a star. Can also be extended with GPS. The very sturdy EQ5 deluxe provides the experienced astronomer with much-needed precision and stability.Its generous aperture makes it an ideal observing instrument for solar system and deep space objects alike — and it really shines on double stars.
Plus, it can be coupled with a common SCT focal reducer to achieve even faster speeds. Its high-power views are stunning. It has the perfect configuration of aperture, focal length and focal ratio to make it a general-purpose telescope that can be used for everything from wide-field viewing to high-power planetary imaging.
It may be the only telescope you will ever need, and one of the finest you will ever look through in this aperture class. Schott is the recognized world leader in glass utilized for precision optical lens systems, including medical instrumentation, and famous-brand camera lenses.
While Schott glass is only used in selected models, all other models utilize top-quality, Grade-A glass from perhaps less famous but, nonetheless, highly respected, high-quality glass manufacturers.

If you are considering a 5" class AP refractor, this beauty may be worth your consideration. The telescope has had almost no use and is still in nearly new condition, the optics are pristine, and there are really not even the slightest smudges to be found anywhere. Please let me know if there are any questions.
