Ade Ashford Says…
"Refractors have long been coveted by many observers since the unobstructed optical system offers high contrast views much prized by lunar and planetary observers as well as many aspects of deep-sky viewing. Sky-Watcher's EVOSTAR range delivers a comprehensive range of robust, low-maintenance tube assemblies on matching mounts to suit all requirements."
