Outfitted with a large 80mm aperture and an apochromatic lens configuration, the Vixen Optics A80M 80mm f/11 APO Refractor Telescope
is an ideal choice for making detailed observations of the Moon and
planets, as well as splitting binary stars and discerning details of
distant galaxies and nebulae. Crown and flint glass lens elements,
combined with multi-coated optics, work together to produce
high-contrast images with accurate color rendition across the entire
field of view with virtually zero distortion at the edges.
optical performance also makes the A80M an ideal choice for
astrophotography. To make imaging easier, Vixen integrates a 90° flip
mirror with two 1.25" eyepiece holders. For imaging, the rig is set it
at the back of the diagonal using an optional T-ring screwed directly
onto the holder or other imaging configurations, with an eyepiece at the
90° position. In this configuration, with a simple flip of the mirror,
the tracking accuracy can be checked and corrected without removing and
re-mounting the delicate photo setup. This OTA is offered here without a
mount or tripod for those with a reliable mount and tripod, and comes
with a cradle ring set with a Vixen-style dovetail plate and handle for
safe and secure handling during setup and breakdown. Vixen Optics
manufactures and assembles the A80M in Japan.
