Customer Reviews

  Reviewing the Skywatcher 80 ED DS PRO Optical Tube  I recently received my SkyWatcher Evostar 80 ED DS PRO Refractor Optical Tube Assembly from `Harrison Telescope. I open the bespoke case for this telescope and what a package deal! Optical tube, viewfinder, diagonal along with an eyepiece. I`m absolutely blown away. The optical tube is an absolute beauty, Great feather focuser with zero backlash, due shield is a generous length to help minimise high levels of due across these great opticsthis will I hope save me money on having to bye a due heater. Finally, I tried my new 80mm on Jupiter parallel to my TMB 80mm f7(the acid test in term of performance). The performance between both instruments was very, very surprising! The TMB on Jupiter as I expected offered just that little bit more intensity of colour and contrast, but in reality, it was negligible against the Skywatcher 80 ED DS Pro. I cannot believe how far `OVL have developed the performance of these optics, it`s incredible. I can truly say anybody looking for an 80mm that offer brilliant value for Money and packs a punch. then this little lady delivers. Thankyou Ed for your support and advice, Im really happy mate.  (28/06/2019) James Howes - London
