This refractor is packed with great features and excellent optics. The 80ED features a 2" rack and pinion focuser and has a bracket that can adapt to a photo tripod or attach to a Celestron equatorial mount (sold separately).

FPL-53 extra low dispersion "ED" glass provides excellent color correction and razor sharp images for serious nature and bird watchers, and virtually eliminates chromatic aberration during planetary and lunar viewing. With a focal length of 600 mm (f/7.5) the 80ED refractor is well suited for wide field astrophotography as well as nature photography. The 80ED comes complete with a 25 mm 1.25" eyepiece providing a 24x wide-field view, erect image diagonal and 6x30 finderscope.

This telescope is no longer available from Celestron and stock is limited.  Celestron has donated their remaining inventory of this telescope to support Astronomers Without Borders programs. This is a super deal on the last remaining stock.

"I'm VERY pleased with the little refractor... It performs as well as if not better than the Orion 80mm ED refractor, which sells for nearly twice as much, weighs MUCH less and doesn't need rings or a mounting bracket which add even more weight. It attached perfectly on my small Ioptron equatorial mount AND it produces virtually no chromatic abberation."
-- Mike Sturgulewski
