The popular "little telescope that could" is now even better. The wide-field refractor that novices appreciate for its ease of use and big-scope owners value as a take-anywhere second scope now has fully multi-coated optics and comes with its own padded carrying case.

Its 80mm achromatic objective lens, short tube 400mm focal length (f/5.0), correct-image diagonal (1.25") and 6x26 correct-image finder scope make the ST80-T perfect for casual stargazing or terrestrial viewing. The short focal length means you'll see a beautifully wide field of view. And like all refractor telescopes, the unobstructed light path means sharper images with better definition and contrast.

Despite its diminutive size - it's only 15-1/2" long - this telescope delivers the goods. And it's so portable you will be able to take it virtually anywhere.

It comes equipped with a 1.25" cast-aluminum rack-and-pinion focuser and two interchangeable Sirius Plossl telescope eyepieces - 25mm (16x) and 10mm (40x). Easily attaches to Orion equatorial mounts or photo tripods.
