William Optics Gran Turismo 81 Triplet APO Refractor

The redesigned Gran Turismo, from William Optics boats superb clarity and true-color views at an affordable price for similar OTAs. You will be impressed by this scope's ability to dramatically reduce chromatic aberrations. A true-color producing APO refractor with a fast, f/5.9, focal ratio all in a visually stunning OTA, there's nothing like it out there.

The GT81 has a triplet air-spaced apochromatic design housed in a CNC-machined lens cell. The exterior has a powder white finish with gold accents. Although it has an impressive 81mm aperture, the GT81 is compact enough to be transported as carry-on luggage on many airlines. This makes the GT81 the ideal scope for astronomers who travel to even the most desolate locations. With the William Optics GT81, the perfect observation just got one step simpler.

The William Optics GT81 includes a robust 2.5" dual speed, rack and pinion focuser. The 1:10 dual speed design is easy to use and features smooth moving knobs. The scope also includes mounting rings, a dual dovetail plate, and the innovative patented Bahtinov Mask Cover. You will also receive a soft carry case to protect your investment. It also includes a CNC carry handle that allows users to slide the silver WO guiding rings (not included) directly onto the handle. The saddle bar handle accepts Synta-style dovetails.
