iOptron 80 mm White Light Solar Scope

This iOptron 80 mm White Light Solar Scope is a combined iOptron 80 mm f/5 achromatic refracting telescope and a durable SolarLite solar filter from Thousand Oaks. The White Light Solar Scope provides a safe view of the solar photosphere. This scope allows you to observe sunspots develop, change, and travel across the Sun's disk.

With fully multi-coated air-spaced doublet optics, the 80 mm White Light Solar Scope from iOptron reveals brighter and sharper images. By simply removing the solar filter from the objective, you can then use this scope for night-time general astronomical viewing.

The 80 mm objective lens and short 400 mm (f/5.0) focal length are perfect for taking in wide swaths of the heavens, making it ideal for larger deep-sky objects. You'll see spectacular star clusters, wispy nebulas, and expansive galaxies with this telescope, but it also excels at viewing objects in our solar system. Enjoy experiencing the phases of the Moon and tracking the motions of the planets with crisp views of Saturn's rings and Jupiter's moons. You can also use this scope for observing birds and other terrestrial objects.

The 80 mm solar scope is an excellent mate for iOptron’s light travel mount, such as The CubeTM altiazimuth and SmartEQTM equatorial goto telescope mounts.
