- Sky-Watcher 80/600 ED Doublet OTA Refractor Telescope
The Sky-Watcher 80/600 ED Doublet OTA Refractor is an ideal telescope for wide field astrophotography, providing a short tube in a compact design giving a sharp, high-contrast image in every view. The aperture with 80mm Diameter and 600mm Focal Length provides enough luminescence to guarantee enough light into the field of view. Its ED optics provide colour aberration-free image and the high-quality Schott glass improves the contrast of the images all throughout the optics. The telescope’s tube is armed with a tough 2 inch Crayford focuser with 1:11 ratio for fine focusing.
Product Features in Detail
Lunar and Planetary viewing
Refractor telescopes are excellent for Lunar and Planetary viewing as they offer very crisp and sharp images.
It can provide excellent vistas of star fields, clusters, nebulae, galaxies, planets, the Moon and (with correct filtering or by projection) the Sun. It is also a fine terrestrial telescope when mounted on an alt-azimuth mount or a photographic tripod. Crisp images at a reasonable price make it an excellent beginner's "first telescope", or a great travelling telescope for a more advanced observer.
The Refractor Advantage
Images viewed through a refractor telescope have a certain classic quality that other telescope designs lack. Since a refractor does not use mirrors to view objects, you get a generally brighter image and a correct, right side up image is displayed.
Strong and Sturdy Construction
Premium materials and expert craftsmanship go into each and every Skywatcher product. The mount which comes with the bundle is designed to provide a stable, vibration resistant platform for stargazing, enabling precise control over the telescope’s slewing and tracking.
High Quality Parts and Components
Skywatcher uses high quality components to ensure your telescope delivers sharp images with greatly reduced chromatic aberrations.
