80mm f/6 Air-Spaced Triplet ED Apochromatic Refractor

ED80 Air spaced triplet refractor in Carbon Fiber w/Retractable Dew Shield, Push/Pull collimation Cell, Two speed Focuser, Deluxe Case, 99% 2-inch Diagonal, Vixen Style dovetail mount.  The Explore Scientific 80mm f/6 Air-Spaced Triplet ED APO made Wire Magazine's Wish List for cool gifts and is a perfect instrument for demanding wide field observing and astrophotography.


Rugged and portable, unlike other "grab-and-go" small doublet ED refractors, this a true three-element apochromatic telescope capable of producing research-level image quality. Dr. Mike Reynolds used this telescope to make the first ever images of shadow bands on clouds during the total eclipse of the sun over Easter Island on July 11, 2010.

In addition to fine optical quality, the deluxe focuser, diagonal  and case, make this telescope a great package. The finder scope is no longer included.
