  • Review of Evostar-120 on EQ5 mount
    "Outstanding value....Our tests on both real and artificial stars revealed a near-perfect diffraction pattern....The Sky-Watcher's mount was a touch heavier & beefier....The larger 2" diagonal - unique in this test - will be invaluable if you are planning to use wide-field eyepieces.... The extra eyepiece, bigger finderscope & star diagonal will lead you to the great value Sky-Watcher....You get more for your money with the Sky-Watcher. That's why it beats the Celestron...."
