About this product

  • 80mm short refractor telescope with fully coated glass optics and a lightweight frame.
  • Observe in no time with a quick and easy, no-tool setup.
  • Accessories include two eyepieces (20mm and 4mm), a erect image diagonal, 3x Barlow lens, and a finderscope.
  • Slow motion rod control for smooth and accurate pointing.
  • Adjustable height tripod includes an accessory tray.

The PowerSeeker 80 is a short refractor telescope perfect for terrestrial and celestial viewing on the go. The PowerSeeker can view the planets, moon, star clusters and brighter deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula and Andromeda Galaxy at night and with the erect image star diagonal makes the optical tube ideal for using as a spotting scope during the day.

Setting up the telescope is a breeze and will have you observing in no time. Even on your first time out, you can assemble the telescope and its accessories in just a few minutes. The adjustable tripod legs allow you to customize the telescope’s height or place it on raised surfaces like a picnic table. The total telescope kit is lightweight and perfect for impromptu observing sessions or transporting wherever life’s adventures take you.

Manual Alt-Azimuth telescope

Navigate the sky with a panning handle Alt-Az control with clutch for smooth and accurate pointing. Move the clutch in an up/down, left/right fashion to track your object in the eyepiece.

Accessories Included

The PowerSeeker 80 comes with two eyepieces (20mm and 4mm), a erect image diagonal, 3x Barlow lens, and a finderscope.  The two eyepieces offer different magnifications to view your intended object. For even more magnification, connect your 3x Barlow lens to triple the power of each eyepiece. The erect image diagonal allows for right-side-up viewing ideal for terrestrial subjects but can also be used for celestial objects. The finderscope will help you quickly center an object in your eyepiece for easier observing.

Solar Warning
  • Never look directly at the Sun with the naked eye or with an optic (unless you have the proper solar filter). Permanent and irreversible eye damage may result.
  • Never use your optic to project an image of the Sun onto any surface. Internal heat build-up can damage the optic and any accessories attached to it.
  • Never leave your optic unsupervised. Make sure an adult who is familiar with the correct operating procedures is with your optic at all times, especially when children are present.
