Why Buy From Stella Scopes

 

 

Reveal celestial wonders like the desolate beauty of the lunar terrain, the serene structure of Saturn’s rings or the brightest deep sky treasures of the Messier catalog with Explore Scientific’s 80mm Apochromatic Refractor.

  • Offering true diffraction-limited optics and sized to encourage spontaneous stargazing sessions, this high-quality telescope is a perfect grab-and-go instrument for exploring the skies.
  • 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.

Although it is a standout telescope on its own, the 80mm also is compact enough to mount on a larger telescope, which can add versatility to your astrophotography experience by separating the guiding and imaging duties. This package also includes the revolutionary EXOS2GT equatorial mount.

This German Equatorial mount is equipped with motors on both axes, allowing the mount to track astronomical objects accurately. The precision gears and dual bearings allow operation with a minimum of backlash on all nine slewing speeds.

A simple 1, 2 or 3 star alignment is necessary to orient the scope for tracking and finding objects. The convenient hand controller has GoTo function controls with 272,994 object database making this affordable mount accurate and reliable.

The mount has a solid 2" stainless steel tube tripod with excellent stability and can be loaded with 28 lbs of astronomy equipment.

The included 12V battery pack can be conveniently attached to the eyepiece tray and requires 8 "D" size batteries.
