About the Vixen ED80Sf with Porta II Mount & Tripod...
The ED 80SF was initially listed as an entry level APO, but now with so many astronomers giving us such glowing reviews, it appears that we will need to reclassify this Vixen Telescope!
The Vixen ED80Sf Refractor Telescope features high-grade glass and quality components. Coupled with a medium f/7.5 focal ratio, the ED 80Sf Vixen Telescope delivers a sharp, color-free image of high contrast. At only 22.4", this is our ultimate grab-n-go APO travel scope.
The Vixen Telescope ED80Sf comes complete with Aluminum Case, Flip Mirror, finder Scope and Rings.
Don'''t forget... We also carry many fine Vixen Accessories including Vixen Eyepieces, and Vixen Reducers and Adapters. There'''s a complete line of Vixen Telescope Mounts and Vixen Camera Mounts, too!
