Svbony company provided me with a Svbony SV505C color astronomical camera based on a Sony imx464 sensor for testing. This is an interesting sensor, which is a follower of the famous Sony imx462 with high sensitivity to near infrared rays (up to 1000 nm) due to the longitudinal increase in the size of the photodiodes. This camera may be of particular interest to those who like shooting Jupiter with a CH4 filter (890 nm) and shooting Venus. Of course, the camera is also suitable for general color photography of the Moon, planets, the Sun, comets and deep sky objects. There is no active cooling of camera.

Svbony provided me with a Svbony SV503 70F6 ED telescope for review. This is a small 70 mm refractor with a two-lens cell, and one of the lenses is made of S-FPL51 glass. The use of ED glass provides a significant reduction in color halo (longitudinal chromatic aberration) around bright objects compared to a classic achromatic refractor of the same focal length. I also received a native Svbony SV193 0.8x (0.8x for 70F6ED) field flattener for this refractor for review.

Svbony SV503 70F6 ED can also be used as a spotting scope. And if the 80 mm ED version of the telescope is too large for such purposes, then the 70 mm version is already quite compact and mobile. Of course, a dedicated spotting scope will be even lighter and more compact, but if you need a versatile device for astronomical and terrestrial observations, then the SV5o3 70 ED will be a good choice.

Svbony provided Svbony SV503 80ED F7 Doublet Refractor for my review. This is a small 80mm refractor with a doublet lens, one of which is made of S-FPL51 glass. The use of ED glass provides a significant reduction in color halo (longitudinal chromatic aberration) around bright objects compared to a classic achromatic refractor with the same focal length. Also for review, I received a native Svbony SV193 0.8x field-flattener reducer for this specific refractor.
