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 this 80mm Apochromatic Refractor from Explore Scientific’s Carbon Fiber Series.

Offering true diffraction-limited optics and a lightweight yet sturdy carbon fiber 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. In addition to enhancing portability by reducing weight, the use of carbon fiber for the OTA eliminates focus change attributed to shrinking or expansion caused by temperature fluctuations.

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.

Includes 99% reflective diagonal and vixen style dovetail plate.
