Offering true diffraction-limited optics and a sturdy aluminum, White optical tube assembly, this high-quality telescope is a perfect grab-and-go instrument for spontaneous stargazing sessions.

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. The Classic White aluminum tube will look great at your next star party as well as provide images of those celestial wonders you are waiting to see.

Although it is a standout telescope on its own, the 80 mm also is compact enough to mount on a larger telescope, if you have everything on a mount which is suitably strong, which can add versatility to your astrophotography experience by separating the guiding and imaging duties.

Includes 99% Mirror Diagonal and Vixen style dovetail mounting plate.
