80MM APOCHROMATIC REFRACTOR
Reveal celestial wonders like the desolate beauty of the lunar terrain, the serene structure of Saturn s rings or the brightest deep sky treasures of the Messier catalog with Explore Scientific s 80mm Apochromatic Refractor.
Offering true diffraction-limited optics and sized to encourage spontaneous stargazing sessions, this high-quality telescope is a perfect grab-and-go instrument for exploring the skies.
Featuring an air-spaced triplet optical design that virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations, this telescope generates brilliant high-contrast images by combining genuine HOYA extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces.
Although it is a standout telescope on its own, the 80mm also is compact enough to mount on a larger telescope, which can add versatility to your astrophotography experience by separating the guiding and imaging duties.
