Our Take

The Sky-Watcher Esprit 100mm is an excellent option for those looking for a step up from the smaller 80 mm scope.  With the dew shield fully retracted, the 100mm has nearly the same length as the 80, making it just as compact and portable, but with more aperture.  With a very fast f/5.5 focal ratio, the Esprit 100 is a traveling astrophotographer's dream.

Designed with the discerning astrophotographer in mind, Sky-Watcher USA’s top-of-the-line Esprit refractors deliver the kind of imaging performance one would expect from telescopes costing thousands of dollars more.

With their three-element air spaced objective lens design, false color is completely eliminated, yielding exceptional contrast and sharpness. The included 2-element field corrector guarantees a flat field across the entire imaging plane. The Sky-Watcher exclusive Helinear Track focusing system provides a smooth, rock-solid focuser with zero image shift.
