About the Orion Grab-n-Go 80mm Triplet Refractor Telescope...

Take a high-resolution tour of the night sky through the new Orion Telescope 80mm triplet ED refractor with this readily transportable "Grab-n-Go" package. For most of us, the best and darkest skies for visual stargazing are not right outside the back door, but are found in sometimes distant remote viewing locations away from city lights and skyglow. To make journeys to such dark-sky sites as convenient as possible Orion has coupled their new Orion Telescope ED80T CF triplet refractor with the sturdy VersaGo II altazimuth Orion Telescope Mount for no-nonsense ease-of-use and exceptional portability.


With the included 2" 26mm Q70 eyepiece and EZ Finder II reflex sight, you have a complete Orion Telescope setup ready for extensive deep-sky viewing action. Amazingly, the entire set weighs a paltry 20 lbs. for easy transport to your favorite dark skies. The Orion Grab-n-Go 80mm Triplet Refractor Telescope is also a great setup for a quick trip into the backyard when you want to observe, but would rather not drag out a heavier telescope.


The lightweight ED80T CF Orion Telescope features an 80mm triplet objective utilizing FPL-53 extra-low dispersion (or "ED") glass for optimal visual performance virtually free of chromatic aberration. Views through the Orion Grab-n-Go 80mm Triplet Refractor Telescope will be true-color and exhibit superior resolution and sharpness. The Orion Telescope ED80T CF sports a machined 2" dual-speed Crayford style focuser for precise focus adjustments and a 90 degree 2" mirror star diagonal is included for maximum light throughput to the wide-angle telescope eyepiece so views of galaxies, nebulas, and star clusters appear bright and clear.


The VersaGo II altazimuth Orion Telescope Mount supplied with the Orion Grab-n-Go 80mm Triplet Refractor Telescope provides a stable, yet relatively lightweight, platform for the ED80T CF. Adjustable tension knobs on both altitude and azimuth axes allow you to adjust the Orion Telescope''s position easily with the panning handle for successful tracking of celestial objects as they appear to migrate across the night sky. The super-wide 70 degree field-of-view 26mm Q70 telescope eyepiece delivers plenty of light to your eye so your views are expansive and contrast-rich. A step-down 2"-to-1.25" focuser adapter is standard, so this grab-n-go Orion Telescope can accommodate all your 1.25" telescope eyepieces and Orion Telescope Accessories as well.


The Orion Grab-n-Go 80mm Triplet Refractor Telescope is an incredibly capable visual astronomy Orion Telescope package offered at a startling value - you save more than $200 compared to buying each included item separately!


Don''t forget... We carry many fine Orion Telescope Accessories, including Orion CCD Cameras and Orion Telescope Mounts!
