Evostar-120 EQ-5 Refractor
Together with the EQ-5 mount the Evostar is a compact, transportable telescope for an affordable price. The Evostar-120 with an aperture of 120 mm gathers 38% mor light than a telescope with 102 mm aperture. It comes with a 9x50 finderscope, a stainless steel tripod, and two 1.25" eyepieces.
This telescope is a good device for observing
objects in our solar system. The moons of Jupiter can be seen under good
observing conditions as discs with different sizes. Mars reveals finest
structures and also the changing of size of the ice-covered polar caps
can be observed. The moon is littered with the smallest grooves, furrows
and craters, where smaller openings show only smooth surfaces.
observation is a highlight with this refractor. Weak nebulae can be
seen as well as globular clusters, which are dissolved in single stars.
We strongly recommend the use of 2" wide field eyepieces. This is the
only way to create the feeling of spatial extent when viewing large-area
No matter whether
photographing objects of our solar system, for example with digital
cameras, or long-term exposures of nebulae, the refractor shows an
exemplary performance. However, we recommend for deep-sky photography
the usage of appropriate filters, which additionally reduce the color
error.Mount and Tripod
EQ5 mount with stainless steel tripod. (upgraded from aluminum tripod)
Standard features of the EQ5 mount include a built-in holder for polar scope, a latitude adjuster with micrometer scale, an azimuth polar-alignment adjuster, aluminum setting circles, large manual slow-motion tracking controls on RA and DEC, and a bubble level. The proposed strong and rigid field tripod is remarkably stable with adjustable height, incorporating 1.5"-diameter steel tripod legs. The lowest possible height with the tripod is 70cm and the maximum extendable height with the tripod is 121cm.Delivery contents
