"With six inches of clear aperture, optimised colour correction, impressive photographic performance and an attractive price, the 150ED DS-Pro may well set a new benchmark for must-have telescopes." BBC Sky at Night Review (pdf)
The Sky-Watcher Evostar-150ED Pro is this year's most anticipated new telescope!
The Evostar-150ED Pro features a doublet objective lens with an Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass element.
Each air-to-glass surface has multiple anti-reflection coatings applied to ensure optimum light transmission, approaching 99.5%!
The proprietary Sky-Watcher “Metallic High-Transmission Coatings” (MHC) are the finest photon anti-rejection coatings in their class.
An optically matched 0.85x reducer/flattener is available for astrophotography that reduces the telescope’s focal length to f6.8.
Note: The Evostar-150ED Pro has a different objective lens glass combination to the Evostar-80ED/100ED/120ED models.

Couldn't believe the size of the box that arrived, perfect condition with what can only be described as a coffin sized Aluminium Case inside, I certainly won't be using this for transport, instead i bought a Geoptic padded bag which the scope just fits in snug as a bug, making it so much easier to move around.
Bad start when trying to set the scope up in that the Tube Rings were too big and just rotated on the Scope when fully closed, took a month to sort but all good now thanks to Flo.
Yes this is one big piece of kit but once it is safely held in my Altair Saber mount it's a joy to use.
One negative why did Sky Watcher fit a metallic hard end cap, yes it has some felt on the inside but mine had already taken some of the paint off the Dew Cap, before I got it out of the box, plastic would have been a better option.
