About this product
Part Number: G80-06-01
The Starfield 80 f/6 Triplet APO is a conveniently sized refractor telescope that appeals to both visual astronomers and astrophotographers.
Fully multicoated air-spaced triplet optics with an FPL53 equivalent ED glass lens delivers high contrast and excellent colour correction.
The telescope's compact size makes it convenient for use on most small / mid-sized astronomy mounts.
The native focal length is 480mm (f/6). For astrophotography, a dedicated screw-on 0.8x reducer/flattener is available that reduces it to 384mm (f/4.8).
The CNC-machined 2.5" dual-speed R&P focuser features 1:10 gear reduction, 360° rotation and 5kg / 11 lb load-bearing capacity. It also includes a 2"-1.25" adapter.
A convenient retractable dew shield minimises dew and prevents glare from nearby lights.
Price includes CNC-machined tube-rings, a carry handle that accepts accessories and a Vixen-type dovetail.
A hard case and optical test report are also included.
