The Pro80ED 80mm f/7.5 Apochromatic Refractor Telescope with AllView Mount from Sky-Watcher
provides a complete rig for near-space and deep-sky observation or
astrophotography/astroimaging. The optical tube assembly (OTA) features a
doublet apochromatic lens system made of extra-low dispersion glass
that virtually eliminates chromatic and spherical aberrations. This
creates views that are clear and bright with true high-contrast color
rendition without distortion or "comas". Complementing the lens system
are fully multicoated optics with Sky-Watcher's Metallic
High-Transmission Coatings (MHC) that maximizes light transmission. To
achieve ultra-precise focusing, the Pro80ED is equipped with a 2"
Crayford two-speed focuser. Unlike conventional rack-and-pinion
focusers, a Crayford uses a tension system to press the focusing rod
against the draw-tube enabling precise control of the focus without
backlash. Two 1.25" eyepieces, a 1.25" eyepiece adapter, and a 2" 90°
star diagonal come with the OTA.
Controlling the OTA is
Sky-Watcher's AllView motorized mount. Designed for long-exposure
astrophotography, the mount offers low-vibration precision tracking for
exceptional imaging or observation. Dual encoders enable the scope to be
moved using the controller or by hand without altering its alignment.
Its hand controller has an internal database of over 42,900 objects with
Go-To capabilities and alignment assistance. Completing the package is a
stainless steel adjustable height tripod with an accessory tray and
controller holder. A hard carrying case is provided for storing and
transporting the OTA.
