Orion ShortTube 80 Refractor Telescope OTA

Orion ShortTube 80 Refractor Telescope OTA

Product code: OR09948
Manufacturer: Orion US
£119.00 £100.00

 

Here's a newly upgraded version of Orion's ever-popular ShortTube 80 Telescope Optical Tube Assembly (OTA) that's ideal for use as a guide scope for guided astrophotography pursuits. The fast f/5.0 optical tube provides an expansive wide field-of-view making guide star acquisition a breeze. A featherweight contender weighing in at a mere 1.1 kgs, the ST80 OTA can easily be added to virtually any astro-imaging set-up without exceeding your imaging-capable EQ mount's payload capacity.

The ShortTube 80 OTA also makes a perfect wide-field visual telescope for perusing large swaths of the night sky. Pop it on your favorite Orion telescope mount and you've got one nifty, portable star probe. You'll love its bright, wide-field views. Its fully multi-coated 80mm objective lens and 400mm focal length (f/5.0) are perfect for scanning the night sky. Add your favorite eyepieces, diagonal, and finder scope (all sold separately) and you're ready for daytime or nighttime visual adventure. The Orion ShortTube 80 Telescope Optical Tube reels in bright deep-sky objects and gets you in tight on solar system targets. During daylight hours, the ST80 performs admirably as a terrestrial spotting scope, yielding contrasty views with crystal clarity. Achieve a correctly oriented daytime view by adding a 45-degree correct-image diagonal (sold separately). Sold as Telescope Optical Tube Assembly, no accessories included
