The Orion ShortTube 80-T Refractor Telescope is a popular, cost effective, little telescope for daytime and night time use. Novices appreciate the wide-field refractor’s ease of use, and owners with big telescopes like this as a second scope because it is easy to take-anywhere in its carrying case. The ST80-T offers a 45-deg diagonal (1.25″) and 6×26 correct-image finder scope in a quick-release bracket. The 80mm achromatic objective lens’s short 400mm focal length delivers wide-field views with marvelous clarity. Two interchangeable Sirius Plossl eyepieces are included, and focusing is simple with the 1.25″ cast-aluminum rack-and-pinion focuser. This telescope has a built-in dovetail mounting block with a 1/4″-20 threaded hole for quick and easy attachment to any photo tripod or telescope mounts. We recommend saving the bubble wrap that comes with your telescope when delivered, and reusing it every time you travel with your scope in the carrying case for added protection.
One-year limited warranty.
