The Explore Scientific FirstLight 80mm f/8 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope
is ideal for users who want a portable observation platform for making
observations or taking images of the moon and planets. Its moderate
aperture and shorter focal length produce a fast focal ratio for
improved resolution, and a larger 40mm drawtube to help avoid vignetting
with larger imaging sensors or wide-field eyepieces.
scope features the manual Twilight Nano alt-azimuth mount with dual-axis
control cables that allow users to track objects as they move across
the night sky. Its stainless steel tripod provides a stable observation
platform; and several observational accessories are provided that
include a 25mm eyepiece, a 90°-star diagonal, a universal smartphone
eyepiece adapter, and an unmagnified red-dot finderscope.
