The A80Mf 80mm f/11 Achro Refractor Telescope from Vixen
is capable of rendering high-resolution planetary, lunar, and deep-sky
images; and with the included 90° erect-image diagonal installed, the
scope can be used as a conventional terrestrial spotting scope. This
version of the A80Mf comes with the Porta II alt-azimuth mount, two
eyepieces, the diagonal, and a finderscope.
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.
comes with two eyepieces that offer low and moderate magnifications, and
a 90° erect-image prism that makes it ideal for both astronomical and
terrestrial use. Vixen offers the A80Mf here without a mount or tripod
for users with a reliable support system, and the included mounting ring
set includes a Vixen-style dovetail plate that makes it compatible with
a wide variety of alt-azimuth, equatorial, and GoTo mounting systems.
Built to support a 20 lb 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 35-51". The Porta II
minimizes support-system oriented frustration when searching 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.
dovetail system ensures that the Porta II can be used to support most
dovetail-mounted OTA and binoculars. The Porta II mount head is
detachable and compatible with all other Vixen tripods. The tripod is
constructed from rugged aluminum alloy, and the legs extend from 35-51".
