Explore Scientific 80mm f/6 Essential Series Triplet Refractor Telescope
Use this Explore Scientific 80mm Essential Series Apochromatic Refractor to open up a new world of celestial phenomena such as the uninhabited elegance of the Moon's surface, the ostensibly divine arrangement of Saturn's rings, or any of the plethora of wondrous deep sky objects found in the Messier catalog.
Compact enough to inspire impromptu stargazing excursions, the ED80 offers true diffraction-limited optics and is the ideal grab-and-go scope for celestial exploration.
With chromatic aberrations all but completely eradicated due to its air-spaced triplet optical design, the ED80 combines genuine HOYA extra-low dispersion (ED) glass with Explore Scientific's exclusive EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces to provide vivid images with high contrast.
Despite being an exceptional telescope system by itself, the ED80 also is small enough that it can be mounted onto a larger telescope, thereby adding variety to your astro-imaging experience by isolating the guiding and imaging responsibilities.
