Why Buy From Stella Scopes
A little larger than a beginner scope and a great way to learn the sky! The A80Mf attached to the Porta II Mount moves easily and is stable when stopped. No tweaking of the hand controls is necessary like some other brands. A perfect telescope for the beginner astronomer or an ideal first telescope for a child. With Vixen's Universal Dove Tail system, this can mount on any of the Vixen mounts. The A80Mf is an Achromatic Refractor with 80mm (3.2") of aperture. Its focal length is 910mm (3 ft.) with an focal ratio of f/11.4. Its light gathering is 130 times better than the human eye and has a maximum (realistic) power of 144X. It is easily transported to your observing site for quick set up and viewing. It weighs only 5.5 lbs. and is covered by Vixen Optics 5 Year Warranty.
