  • Orion 80mm ED F/6 CF Triplet Apochromatic Refractor Telescope includes robust dual-speed (11:2) 2" Crayford focuser, 2" to 1.25 stepdown adapter, Starry Night astronomy software, dovetail finder scope base, and a foam lined hard carry case.

Orion 80mm ED F/6 CF Triplet APO Refractor Telescope is a favorite amongst astrophotography enthusiasts delivering amazing images. This 80mm aperture triplet objective features FPL-53 extra-low dispersion glass that provides tack-sharp resolution as the views and captured images come through true to color. Apochromatic refactor telescopes are very popular amongst amateur astronomers because of the crisp views given off during observation. An APO Refractor telescopes significantly reduce chromatic aberration or false color, due to the use of the ED (Extra-low Dispersion) optical glass and the use of the three optical elements. Real time observers and imaging experts have found the apochromatic refractor telescopes to be a preferred choice in instruments considering the visual and imaging benefits it gives off.

A versatile power performer telescope well-suited for multiple applications, the Orion Orion 80mm ED F/6 CF Triplet APO Refractor Telescope is an excellent instrument for astrophotography when used with an imaging-capable equatorial mount and CCD and DSLR camera. The light weight and small size of this refractor telescope makes it a very portable instrument making it easy for enthusiasts to transport from escapade to escapade. Orion 80mm ED F/6 CF Triplet APO Refractor Telescope has a focal length of 480mm (f/6.0) delivering fast, unobstructed optics that yield detail-rich visual views of the solar system and wide-field deep-sky objects alike. The superb ED optics and the triplet objective nearly eliminate chromatic aberrations.

Being small in size and light weight, the Orion 80mm ED F/6 CF Triplet APO Refractor Telescope is very portable but also because of its retractable dew shield, 14.3" with the dew shield fully retracted. This refractor telescope measures 18.25" long when the dew shield is fully extended to minimize peripheral glare and dew accumulation. The refractor tube is made up of striking carbon-fibers making it a light weight luxury. No more breaking your back setting up your telescope, this 5.5 pound instrument is light weight and easy to set up. As well as being light weight, this Orion 80mm ED F/6 CF Triplet APO Refractor Telescope gives you a lot of bang for your buck costing only a fraction of what other APO Refractor Telescopes go for.

Orion 80mm ED F/6 CF Triplet APO Refractor Telescope can be mounted to any Orion EQ (Equatorial) mount equipped with a narrow, or "Vixen-style", dovetail saddle without the need for additional mounting accessories. If you are using the scope for astrophotographic adventures, it is recommended to use stable motorized EQ mount however, a wide variety of lightweight, sturdy field and photo tripods will do just fine as well. The photo tripods will need to feature the same integrated dovetail mounting base which features a threaded 1/4" - 20 acceptor.

Orion 80mm ED F/6 CF Triplet APO Refractor Telescope is a quality instrument at an affordable price. This exceptional value includes top-notch features and accessories giving many enthusiasts the best bang for their buck. The precision machined Crayford-style telescope focuser enables dual-speed focus adjustment superb for dialing in delicate details of terrestrial and celestial subjects. The smaller fine focus knob adjusts focus at a rate of 11:1 compared to the coarse focus knob, giving you the ability to home-in on just the right focal point for sharp performance and crystal-clear observations and astrophotos. The included 2" to 1.25" eyepiece adapter enables trouble-free use of higher magnification 1.25" telescope eyepieces or 1.25" imaging cameras and other accessories. For storage and safe transport, everything fits nicely in the included hard case with custom die-cut foam interior.
