Sky-Watcher USA partnered with Starlight Xpress and assembled the Esprit 100 ED APO Refractor Telescope with Trius Camera Kit to give beginner astroimagers a complete and portable rig that delivers outstanding performance.

This kit includes the fast f/5.5 triplet apochromatic refractor telescope and the Starlight Xpress Trius monochrome imaging camera. The optical tube's 100mm medium aperture is ideal for both solar system objects like the Moon and planets, with the ability to resolve brighter deep-sky objects like nebulae, clusters, and galaxies. The Trius imaging kit comes complete with a Lodestar guide camera to ensure a compatible motorized mount is accurately tracking, and a 7-position filter wheel for creating custom images using color and specialty filters that are easy to change between exposures.

This kit's compact size and included OTA and camera cases make it easy to bring to remote locations, and with its Vixen-style dovetail plate it only requires a small- to medium-sized equatorial mount and tripod to begin capturing stunning images of the Moon, planets, and bright deep-sky objects.

Esprit ED APO 100mm f/5.5 Refractor Telescope

The Esprit ED APO 100mm Telescope from Sky-Watcher is a 3-element refractor telescope designed for astrophotographers. The optical system features apochromatic extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and fully multicoated optics. A 2-element threaded field-flattener corrects distortion that can occur at the edges of the field of view. This combination makes astrophotographic images clear and sharp, with high-contrast and true-color transmission, from one edge of the field of view to the other. With a focal ratio of f/5.5, this fast telescope is well-suited for astrophotography.

The 2" rack-and-pinion Helinear Track focusing system allows you to bring celestial objects into precise focus with virtually no shift. The focuser features tracks above and below the focus tube. This gives the mechanism two points of contact, keeping focuser level even with a camera mounted on it. The Esprit comes with a 90° star diagonal with dielectric coatings. These coatings provide better than 99% light reflection. The telescope also comes with a 8x50 right-angle erector finderscope, a Cannon 48mm T-Ring photo adapter, and a foam-lined aluminum case.
