Sky-Watcher Evostar ED 80mm APO

Recommended Posts

I love my  C80ED and C100ED, same lens as the Skywatcher equivalents. They have a nice old stocky r&p focuser. They have the same spot of glue on each side of the lenses.

Yes the lock screw stops the tube shifting but the focuser wheels can still be turned, quite normal

The second issue is more likely an eyepiece issue.

Thanks, that’s good to know. 
Is the stock supplied 2” 28mm considered a good eyepiece, or just a very poor basic one?

havent yet invested in high quality eyepieces, or even looked through any of the high end ones. 
 

all of  my recent expenditure has been on the basics...OTAs mount etc...

The supplied ep is OK but a quality eyepiece will transform any scope. There are so many to choose from everyone has there own personal preferences if you are looking for decent eps have a look through reviews on here and in the mags and best of all try before you buy if you can
