The Sky-Watcher Evolux 62ED is an apochromatic doublet refractor for grab'n'go astrophotography with a focal length of 530mm and focal ratio of f/6.5. Featuring upgraded mechanics compared to the popular Evostar line, the Evolux continues the tradition of affordable yet high quality widefield telescopes.

Features

  • Excellent optical performance for a doublet ED telescope
  • Updated 2-lens element design with Extra-low Dispersion glass
  • 62mm / f 6.5 (f5.8 with optional reducer)
  • New optional re-designed dedicated reducer/field flattener for wider field of view and faster imaging
  • Retractable integrated dew shield for improved handling
  • Precision 61mm (2.4") dual-speed focuser
  • Vixen-style dovetail with clamshell tube rings
  • Two finder-style saddles for holding guide scopes/control units (such as the ASIAIR)
  • Aluminium hard case

 Note: as with most refractors, you will need to add the optional flattener/reducer in order to use the telescope for astrophotography. The 0.9x flattener/reducer gives a corrected field of 30mm, making it suitable for cameras with APS-C and smaller sensors.
