Sky-Watcher EvoStar 100mm f/9 Doublet APO Refractor (OTA only)
Key Features
  • 100mm Apochromatic Refractor
  • 900mm Focal Length, f/9 Focal Ratio
  • Proprietary MHC Multi-Coated Optics
  • Schott BK7 and FPL-53 ED Glass
The EvoStar 100mm f/9 Doublet APO Refractor from Sky-Watcher features a doublet apochromatic lens system with Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and Sky-Watcher's proprietary photon anti-rejection Metallic High-Transmission Coatings (MHC) on all air-to-glass optical surfaces. This combination of glass, lenses, and coatings virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations for clear and bright high-contrast images with true color rendition. This is a versatile optical tube assembly (OTA) that is well suited for wide-field astronomical observation of prominent nebulae, star clusters and galaxies, or can be used as an astrograph for sky photography, a terrestrial spotting scope or telephoto lens. The aperture of this 100mm model of the ProED not only increases image brightness over the smaller 80mm version, it improves resolution and contrast.

The EvoStar 100mm f/9 Doublet APO Refractor from Sky-Watcher features a doublet apochromatic lens system with Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and Sky-Watcher's proprietary photon anti-rejection Metallic High-Transmission Coatings (MHC) on all air-to-glass optical surfaces. This combination of glass, lenses, and coatings virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations for clear and bright high-contrast images with true color rendition. This is a versatile optical tube assembly (OTA) that is well suited for wide-field astronomical observation of prominent nebulae, star clusters and galaxies, or can be used as an astrograph for sky photography, a terrestrial spotting scope or telephoto lens. The aperture of this 100mm model of the ProED not only increases image brightness over the smaller 80mm version, it improves resolution and contrast.

A mounting cradle-ring clamps over OTA and allows the user to adjust the orientation and position of the scope relative to the mount to optimize viewing comfort and balance, while avoiding interference with other equipment. The scope is offered without a mount or tripod, but a Vixen-style dovetail plate makes it compatible with any alt-az or equatorial mount with a Vixen-style saddle.

Its two-speed Crayford-style focuser helps make fine-focusing fast and precise without backlash. The EvoStar comes with several accessories to help you get observing faster and easier. First, are two long eye relief eyepieces that produce 30 and 120x magnification, a 90° star diagonal for more comfortable viewing, and a large 8x50 erect-image finderscope to make finding your celestial objects faster and easier. Finally, Sky-Watcher provides a foam-lined aluminum carrying case to safely store and transport the OTA.

I have a Celestron 1.25" Adaptor for DSLRs. Will that work with this telescope? The model is 96325, and I have the Nikon T-ring that goes with it to connect my DSLR.
Asked by: JRK
@Thomas, thanks - that was useful. Since you use this scope, I was wondering what mount you use. I have a Star Adventurer Pro and I'm worried the Evostar 100 + a Nikon D5500 body might be pushing the payload limits of the mount...?

What is the chance of this telescope to lose collimation? Is there a way to collimate this telescope or, if it loses collimation, will you simply lose the telescope?
Asked by: Peter
Collimation usually is necessary in a reflector scope when the mirror is out of alignment Thai is a refractor scope, no mirror a sealed OTA with glass elements. If due to impact a glass element is out of placed it would have to be serviced at a optics repair facility and re sealed. .
