SkyWatcher Evostar 150 ED is the apochromatic refractor with 150mm diameter and 1200mm focal length (f/8), doublet ED lens. SkyWatcher Evostar 150 ED offers an Extra Low Dispersion lens that creates images free from chromatic aberration and with high contrast at an incredibly low price. Great performance both for visual use and astrophotography. The focal ratio, that is not too short, makes it ideal for planetary and lunar photography, where the not obstructed and large diameter lens allows great performance also when the seeing is not perfectly stable. It comes standard with a a lot of accessories: 50,8mm Crayford focuser with 31,8mm adapter and 1:10 fine focus knob, SESTO SENSO 2 robotic focusing motor, PLUS support rings and aluminum transport case. 3 years of warranty on the optical tube!
This special version of the Skywatcher EVOSTAR 150 ED adds SESTO SENSO 2 - The highly accurate, advanced, vibration free, robotic focusing motor for your telescope! Connect it to the USB port of your EAGLE or Windows® computer to electronically control focus while still allowing you to manually move your focuser by hand if needed. If you don’t want to focus using a computer, you can connect wirelessly from any smartphone or tablet using the integrated Virtual HandPad via the built-in Wifi network in the SESTO SENSO 2! Thanks to the Self Centering Clamp technology (SCC), SESTO SENSO 2 can be installed on most focusers without the need of external brackets. The supplied FOCUS Manager software and ASCOM driver allow easy configuration of the many advanced features of SESTO SENSO 2. Thanks to the precisely controlled motor with integrated electronics, SESTO SENSO 2 achieves incredible precision of just 0.7 microns. And you can also expand SESTO SENSO 2 features by adding the ARCO robotic camera rotator!
In this kit we replace the standard rings with our PLUS rings which offer greater stability and compatibility with plates, guide rings, dovetail clamps and EAGLE to offer you maximum freedom in customizing your telescope. Indeed, all the PLUS elements have threaded holes, holes and slots suitable for connecting elements, always with maximum rigidity and comfort. Each component of the PLUS system is made of aluminum blocks that are high precision CNC machined. The aluminum is then sandblasted to achieve a very smooth surface finish and is anodized (hard anodizing) to increase the hardness of the material and protect it from oxidation.
Thanks to the use of SESTO SENSO 2, you can use the Skywatcher EVOSTAR 150 ED both for visual (with diagonal and eyepieces) and astrophotography (with a camera). By adding EAGLE to the SkyWatcher EVOSTAR 150 ED telescope you can remotely control and power any camera, mount and accessory for astrophotography, using any of the most advanced astronomical software for Windows (you can install in the EAGLE the software you prefer) and converting your SkyWatcher EVOSTAR 150 ED into the most advanced robotic telescope.
