The Vixen Optics A80Mf 80mm f/11 Achro Refractor Telescope is designed with an achromatic lens system that produces bright and clear high-contrast images with true color representation across its entire distortion-free field of view. Its 80mm objective gathers more light than smaller-objective models while still being easy to handle and transport, especially when you have to carry it a distance to your observation site. This lens system, coupled with the fully coated optics, will give you great views of the Moon, planets, planetary moons, and brighter deep sky objects. You will be able to split binary stars and observe bright objects with virtually no comas.
Built to support a 9.07 payload, and equipped with two fine adjustment handles for whole circle slow motion in both directions, the Porta II Mount from Vixen comes with a sturdy set of legs that adjust from 35 to 51 inch. The Porta II minimizes support-system-oriented frustration when searching for and tracking celestial objects.
The Porta II is solid, and its slow-motion flexible handles minimize vibrations to keep the view sharp. Precision tracking of planets and ships on the horizon becomes a simple event thanks to a fine-tooth geared drive that's activated by turning the elevation or azimuth control handles.
