The 4" refractor has long been regarded as a serious instrument, often approaching the performance of 5" and 6" reflectors without any of the maintenance issues of collimation and mirror coatings. At this longer focal ratio the optics will provide stunning views of Solar system objects as well as high contrast deep sky views. These affordable high quality refractors will provide a lifetime of astronomical observation.
The EVOSTAR series are two-element, air-spaced, multi-coated objective achromatic refractors. They are truly outstanding, high-performance, high-resolution instruments manufactured to extremely high standards of optical and mechanical precision. With their long focal lenghs and breathtaking, diffraction limited optical performance, they are ideal for the detailed high-power study of the Moon, Planetary Surfaces and other objects in our solar system, giving crisp contrasty images. These telescope packages will stand you in great stead for a lifetime of serious astronomical viewing.
