This versatile telescope excels for long-distance terrestrial viewing as well as for visual jaunts through the cosmos, particularly to the Moon, the major planets, and the brighter nebulas and star clusters. It’s ideal for the home deck or patio, but also lightweight and compact enough to take afield. Manufactured in Japan, the VX80 features an all-aluminum optical tube finished in white gloss enamel. Housed within is a premium, air-spaced 80mm (3.1") objective doublet of 910mm focal length (f/11.4). The images it renders are vivid and tack-sharp over a range of practical powers of up to 200x .
Comes with a 6x30 finderscope, 26 mm Sirius Plossl, 45 degree mirror diagonal, accessory tray, fully motorized in both RA/DEC on a Great Polaris mount, dual axis controller, Thousand Oaks solar filter, The Sky (SE) planetarium software, and battery pack.
