ES Reid Checked Telescope
Es Reid is highly regarded in the optical industry so to ensure our Evostar-150ED Pro refractors perform at their very best we send them to him for checking and, if necessary, tuning on his optical bench.
This extra layer of quality control has added only £75 to the purchase price.
A small price to pay for peace of mind.
You know it makes sense :-)
Checked & tuned, for details see here.
Sky-Watcher's newest and largest Evostar-150ED DS Pro telescope with the EQ6-R Pro mount. An excellent combination!

The EQ6-R Pro mount offers a payload capacity of of 20kg for Astro-Photography (manufacturer's spec') so has no difficulty carrying the 150ED DS Pro.
Synchronous Belt Drive for reduced backlash, smoother operation and better results when guiding, and higher torque.
Improved Latitude adjustment controls with greater range of latitudes possible.
Built-in SNAP camera control port.
PPEC worm gear and worm periodic error correction function (avoids having to constantly re-train).
Built-in carrying handle for convenient transportation and setup and a dual-fit 45mm (Vixen-style) or 75mm (Losmandy-style) dovetail saddle.
