Orion ShortTube 80-T Terrestrial Telescope


Orion ShortTube 80-T Terrestrial Telescope.

The popular Orion "little scope that could" is now even better. The Orion Short Tube 80 is a wide-field refractor that novices appreciate for its ease of use, and that owners of big telescopes value as a take-anywhere second scope. The Orion ShortTube 80 has been improved with fully multi-coated optics, and it even comes with its own padded carrying case.

The Short Tube's 80mm achromatic objective lens, short 400mm focal length (f/5.0), correct-image diagonal (1.25") and 6x26 correct-image finder scope make the ST80-T perfect for casual stargazing or terrestrial viewing. The short focal length means you'll see a beautifully wide field of view. And like all refractors, the unobstructed light path of the Orion ST 80 means sharper images with better definition and contrast.

Despite its diminutive size (it's only 15-1/2" long) this telescope really delivers, and it's so portable you will be able to take it virtually anywhere. The Orion ShortTube 80T comes equipped with a 1.25" cast-aluminum rack-and-pinion focuser and two interchangeable Sirius Plossl eyepieces...a 25mm (16x) and 10mm (40x). It attaches easily to a wide variety of equatorial mounts or photo tripods, and has a one year limited warranty.
