Sky-Watcher StarTravel 80 AZ3 Refractor Telescope
An ideal instrument for the wide-field observation of Deep-Sky objects, including Nebulae, Star Fields, Star Clusters and Galaxies, the Moon, bright planets and Comets
This wide-field, short-tube telescope is great as fixed aperture lense for both Astrophotography and terrestrial photography. Its “fast" focal ratio makes it useful for capturing lunar and solar eclipses as well as nature photographs. The intuitive and easy to use AZ3 Alt-Azimuth mount provides excellent stability and precise control, via its slow motion cables, on both the horizontal (azimuth) and vertical (altitude) axes.
