Sky-Watcher Professional ESPRIT 3-Element ED apochromatic refractors are instruments of the highest quality with optical performance rivalling or exceeding similar telescopes of even the most famous high-end telescope brands.

The ESPRIT Super Apo Triplets are designed for the most demanding astro-imagers, for use with the optional M48 field flattener, but are also fine telescopes for visual observations.
