Recommended Posts

One Skywatcher Evostar 80ED DS-Pro OTA.

Customer Return

OTA only including rings and dovetail but no other accessories. Focuser works fine but very slightly rough in some places - won't affect use.

Comes with a Moonlite 1.25" to 2" adapter.

Full manufacturers warranty.

£359.00 £323.00  (saving £36.00)

Is this the same one that was posted at a reduced price last month, or just similar problem with focuser shaft?

The same telescope. I have just checked it again myself. The focuser is fine. No different to any other Sky-Watcher cast-metal dual-speed focuser. 

Sky-Watcher use a basic dual-speed Crayford focuser for their ED Pro models. It won't give Moonlite or Starlight Instruments sleepless nights but is perfectly adequate for most users. 

HTH,

Did this sell

Yes - if you click on any of our clearance links and the page is no longer available it means somebody beat you to it I'm afraid - these don't hang around long, particular ED80's!
