Building on the foundation of the popular Evostar line of doublet ED refractors, Sky-Watcher has developed the all-new Evolux ED series. Designed for the discerning astrophotographer looking for a lightweight scope that still packs a punch. Naturally, Evolux ED models offer excellent performance for visual use too. Evolux ED models have key upgrades in the optics and the mechanics, making them the perfect fit for a widefield grab-and-go setup. Evolux ED apochromatic doublet refractors are the perfect blend of superior extra-low dispersion glass and affordability. The doublet lens assembly utilizes a proprietary combination of optically matched lenses, including one ED lens element, that delivers sharp stars with charcoal-black, contrast-rich skies, whilst virtually eliminating false color. All lens elements feature Sky-Watcher's proprietary Metallic High-Transmission Coatings (MHTC) which are the finest photon anti-rejection coatings in their class, optimizing light throughput to up to 99.5%!

Sky-Watcher Evolux-62ED

The Evolux-62ED can also be used as a deluxe guidescope. The Evolux-62ED comes in a foam-lined aluminum case with a 2.4-inch 11:1 dual-speed rack-and-pinion focuser, 45mm dovetail bar, clamshell ring, and adjustable dew shield. An optional 0.9x two-element focal reducer/field flattener, which includes one ED lens element and adaptor/field rotator is available separately, which when combined makes the Evolux-62ED into a four-lens optical system comprising two ED elements!

Flattener/Reducer

To complement the Evolux refractors two separate two-element design incorporating one ED element Reducer/Flattener combos are introduced. They reduce the standard focal length of the Sky-Watcher Evolux-62ED and Sky-Watcher Evolux-82ED by a factor of 0.9x and provides top quality field-edge correction. The flattener / reducer illuminates a full frame format and provides pinpoint star imaging over a 30mm image circle for the 62ED and 36mm for the 82ED. Provides focal length of 360mm & f/5.8 for the 62ED and 477mm & f/5.8 for the 82ED. Field of View 5.09° for the 62ED and 4.34° for the 82ED. Back focus is 55mm. Fully multi-coated.

Supplied with adapter/field-rotator. Filter thread inside adaptor to mount 2" filters. M56x1 female / M48 male threads. Can be used in conjunction with Sky-watcher's M48 Canon or Nikon T-ring adapters (product codes SW_20237 & SW_20238).
