SUPERNOVA BUNDLE: For a limited time only, this ED80 Refractor Bundle includes a FREE Explore Scientific ED80 Carrying Case. That's a $220 USD Value - FREE.

The ED80 Essential Series Air-Spaced Triplet Refractor is a true apochromat that reveals 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.

Offering true diffraction-limited optics with genuine HOYA FCD1 ED glass, the ED80 is the perfect size 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 deposition 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.

One little problem, otherwise a good telescope

Received the telescope in good condition and quick delivery. Haven't used it yet as dovetail won't fit the tripod mounting by about 1 mm. Working to find a solution to that problem, getting a dovetail to match the equipment I have now. This telescope should be just the thing for astrophotography.

Focusing knobs set screws keep loosening, vixen mount plate base needs a rider. More but it's ok. Scope works great on not to distant deep space objects, depending on size and camera you have.

Incredibly powerful refractor

Initially, I didn’t believe the quality of views that this Scope could produce. When I received it, I quickly realized that this was a serious Telescope! If I want to get nice sharp images of Saturn, and other planets, I’ll throw on a 4.5mm Eyepiece with a 2x Barlow lens. The magnification that this combo produces is absolutely perfect for getting views that will blow your mind! If you’re looking for a compact and portable refractor, I can’t recommend the ED80 enough.
