Yey quite excited about this, my order has been sitting quietly waiting, hopefully you've got more than what's been pre ordered.

You are not going to like this :unsure: 

The entire shipment of Sky-Watcher Evoguide 50ED has sold out!  In less than 24-hours! 

Fortunately we were able to secure enough to fulfil all existing orders but if you placed an order since we posted yesterday we will not be able to fulfil it until the next shipment... Which is unlikely to arrive before August! :blink: 

Apparently the shipment was smaller than expected. Perhaps it is because the EvoGuide 50ED was released in the US at NEAF. We are guessing, we don't know. 

Please don't shoot the messenger, 

Steve

Wow, glad I got my order in last week when you advised me to "buy now"! :-)

So glad I ordered back in March.

Sorry for those who would have wanted one but will now need to wait.

Very happy, arrived direct today, many thanks.

Not worked out what this bit is yet was loose inside one of the packing wells. Will unpack properly later.

Very nice kit.

Sure is a lovely thing.

This crop from your earlier image FLO showed the rear section in light grey and the post suggesting it could be removed. Does it unscrew? 

Any help appreciated please as I don't want to damage it doing the wrong thing.

It was a focus locking screw.

Have you placed an order?

If not then unfortunately they are all sold. We won't be able to supply them again until the next shipment. Sorry :sad2:

That's amazing, but a testimony to it filling a little hole in the market.

Mine is arriving Tuesday! Looking forward to having a play about. It‚Äôll go lovely with my ed80 and skymax 127 but my next dilemma is my HEQ5 is the old one and does not have the green detailing! ¬†ūüėā¬†

It’s a very versatile and lively looking product. Not surprised by the strong sales. Looking forward to hearing how they perform.

Did you get the end off in the end? It does just screw off! :-)

Mine arrived today and it is a really nice, solidly built (and heavy for the size) piece of kit - just need to ED72 to stick it on now.... Thanks to James @FLO for the help sorting out the confusion with FEDEX! :-)
