Grab yourself a bargain with this old stock SkyWatcher 100ED Pro! This particular telescope has been tested under the sky. In perfect optical condition, although the tube has some cosmetic blemishes. This telescope is optically exactly the same as the current Evostar version but has blue paint instead of black and a single speed focuser.

This scope includes tube rings and Vixen-style dovetail bar.

The Skywatcher 100ED Pro is an apochromatic doublet refractor that offers high performance for visual observers and astrophotographers. The objective lens features an element similar in performance to S-FPL-53, extra-low dispersion glass (ED) that minimizes the chromatic aberration for the best colour correction. As a result, planets and the moon are sharp at high magnification and for astrophotography the images have a high contrast. 

The objective lens is fully multi coated with the Skywatcher proprietary "Metallic High-Transmission Coating" (MHC) for an effective anti-reflection result that approaches a transmission of 99.5%.

The aluminium tube is light-baffled and blackened to ensure high contrast absorbing stray light.
