Vixen Optics A80MF Refractor Telescope and Porta II Mount

If you are looking to start out with something a little larger than a beginner scope and want to spend the time to learn the sky instead of relying on a computer to slew the scope over to each object, this is the package for you. The A80MF attaches to the Porta II Mount, moves easily and is stable when stopped. No tweaking of the hand controls is necessary like some other brands. A perfect telescope for the beginner astronomer or an ideal first telescope for a child. With Vixen's universal dovetail system, this can mount on any of the Vixen mounts. The A80MF is an achromatic refractor with 80mm (3.2'') of aperture. Its focal length is 910mm (3 ft.) with an f ratio of 11.4. Its light gathering is 130 times better than the human eye and has a maximum (realistic) power of 144x. It is easily transported to your observing site for quick set up and viewing. It weighs only 5.5 lbs and is covered by Vixen Optics' 5 year warranty.
