Our view

The Evostar 6″ refractor on a more capable fully GOTO mount. This mount is the minimum quality mount we recommend for longer exposure photography with this telescope. It can handle more weight than the EQ5, is more robust and has better bearings. Visually, this telescope is an excellent deep-sky instrument, and performs well as a lunar/planetary telescope. Lovely pinpoint star images and much better light grasp than the smaller Evostars mean that it has unbeatable value as a low power wide-field telescope. Try the Skywatcher 40mm Aero eyepiece or Baader Scopos 35mm eyepiece for high contrast views of the Milky Way and the Orion nebula.
Requirements. You will need a 12v DC power supply, such as a Powertank, or a tip positive regulated 230v AC to 12v DC adapter. 

Tips

Budget for an A4 sheet of Baader Astrosolar and the Baader UHC and OIII filters. Budget also for a 1.25″ Baader polarizing set or a 1.25″ Neutral density filter for the moon. It is also worth considering a 6mm eyepiece for the moon and planets. Consider also a Baader chromatic aberration reducing filter. At higher powers, brighter objects such as the moon and planets can show considerable secondary spectrum.
