About this product
Part Number: TASTK08000
The Starbase 80 Telescope and Mount package is manufactured in Japan for (not by) Takahashi.
Takahashi's intention is to provide an affordable good quality grab-&-go achromatic refractor on a portable easy-to-use alt-azimuth mount.
The 80mm F10 optics provide sharp contrasty views, particularly when used with the included Orthoscopic eyepieces.
The portable alt-azimuth mount provides a stable platform with smooth slow motions.
Includes a decent quality Rack & Pinion focuser with a 1.25" prism diagonal and two Orthoscopic eyepieces.
Starbase 80 Telescope: The 80mm long focal-ratio achromatic refractor telescope provides detailed contrasty views of the Moon, planets, star clusters and brighter nebulae and galaxies.
Sturdy Mount and Tripod - The portable easy-to-use alt-azimuth mount is well suited to the telescope so provides stable views and convenient slo-mo controls.
Ready to Use - Straight out of the box the Starbase 80 ready for use in only a couple of minutes!
NOTE 1: Photos show telescope fitted with optional 6x30 finderscope
NOTE 2: Takahashi have increased their price to £605 but we have stock purchased at pre-increase prices so will retain our original retail price while able.
