Description

Details

This top notch package includes both the highly accessible and easy to use ED80SF Telescope and Vixen's deluxe Porta II Alt-Azimuth mount. The ED80SF is a splendid example of a great visual observing refractor, operating at a focal ratio of F/7.5 and providing sharp and high contrast views of the cosmos above. It is a highly compact and portable telescope as well, only 4" in outer diameter and only 22.4" long. This makes it an excellent choice for a travel scope to be taken out to a wide variety of dark sites as needed. It combines wonderfully with the Porta II mount, a high quality Alt-Azimuth mount that is similarly portable and efficient. The Porta II only weighs 12lbs, but can support a payload of up to 20lbs, while the ED80SF only weighs 7.5lbs in total. What this means is that you'll have plenty of room for any attachments, modifications, or accessories you'd like to use with your telescope.

The Porta II and ED80SF share a trait that makes them a beautiful combo for the astronomer on the go: Both are extremely simple to use and easy to transport, making this package one of the best available choices for the astronomer on the go. The Porta II has a universal dovetail plate capable of accepting both D and V style accessories and scopes, making the mount re-usable even once you've moved on and up from the ED80SF, which is itself one of the better options for a beginning astronomer interested in observation.
