SkyWatcher EVOSTAR 72 ED apochromatic refractor with SESTO SENSO: main features
SkyWatcher Evostar ED72 is an apochromatic refractor with 72mm diameter and 420mm focal length (f/5,8), doublet ED apochromatic lens with Schott FPL-53 glass. SkyWatcher Evostar ED72 in an ultra portable telescope that will be able to give you great wide field images, great for astrophotography, but very good also for terrestrial observations thanks to perfect contrast and color correction. It comes with micrometric focuser for the best focusing precision. 3 years of warranty on the optical tube!
- SkyWatcher EVOSTAR 72 ED telescope is a D:72mm F:420mm f/5.8 apochromatic refractor
- SESTO SENSO 2 is the best robotic focusing motor, great both for visual use and astrophotography
SESTO SENSO 2: the most advanced robotic focusing motor!
This special version of the Skywatcher EVOSTAR 72 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!
SkyWatcher EVOSTAR 72 ED very good for visual use and astrophotography
Thanks to the use of SESTO SENSO 2, you can use the Skywatcher EVOSTAR 72 ED both for visual (with diagonal and eyepieces) and astrophotography (with a camera). If you have heavy cameras and photographic accessories, we still recommend our Skywatcher EVOSTAR 72 ED kit with ESATTO that offers higher load capacity. The optional 0,85x reducer/flattener enables you to convert it into a perfect telescope to photograph deep-sky objects even with large sensor camera (like DSLR). In fact it decreases telescope focal length from 420mm to 357mm (focal ratio changes from f5.8 a f4.96). This makes it easier to record the weak details of galaxies, nebulae and star clusters. By adding EAGLE to the SkyWatcher EVOSTAR 72 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 72 ED into the most advanced robotic telescope.
