Sky-Watcher Equinox-80 f/500 Pro Fluorite ED APO Refractor

Recommended Retail Price: R10,231.50

The Equinox 80 is another excellent choice for birding, nature study, and photography. Its fast, high-contrast optics and generous field of view make it an ideal instrument for studying larger clusters and star fields, and it is a proven performer for astrophotography – 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 150x.

Standard Features:

D = 80 mm, fast, flat f/6.2, F = 500.
Razor sharp, colour-free, high contrast optics.
Retractable aluminum dewshields.
Removeable L-shape bracket for easy mounting on any any camera tripod.
Perfect for astronomy, birding and terrestrial use.
Fast speeds and flat fields for widefield astrophotography.
Aluminum carrying case for safe, easy transportation.

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.

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. Contact your SkyWatcher dealer to get an Equinox refractor today.
