About this product

The Orion ShortTube 80-A Refractor Telescope (A for "Astronomy") is an upgraded version of our ever-popular ShortTube 80. Now improved with fully multi-coated optics and a soft carrying case, the "little telescope that could" is better than ever!

The ShortTube 80-A is a fantastic, take-anywhere astro telescope. You'll love the bright, wide-field views it delivers. The telescope's 80mm objective lens and short 400mm (f/5.0) focal length are perfect for scanning the heavens. Its wide field-of-view makes it an ideal choice for observing deep sky targets, and its convenientlt portable size makes it easy to bring alogn on trips to areas with dark skies. You'll see dramatic star clusters, wispy nebulas, and expansive galaxies, but this compact refractor also excels at viewing solar system targets. You can also monitor the Moon's phases and track the motions of brighter planets with crisp views of Saturn's rings, Jupiter's moons, and more.

Multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces ensures maximum light transmission for sharp, accurate image fidelity. Includes an aluminum rack-and-pinion focuser (1.25"), 90ø mirror diagonal, large 8x40 finder, tube rings, and two Expanse eyepieces (20mm and 9mm). Everything fits nicely in an included soft carry case for easy transport.

The included dovetail mounting block makes it easy to attach the ShortTube 80-A to a variety of Orion telescope mounts. This compact refractor is a great way to get started in astronomy - or add a more portable second telescope to your astro arsenal.
