Explore Scientific ED80 Triplet Essential Series Imaging Package - Not Available

The Explore Scientific ED80 Triplet Imaging Package comes complete with the 80mm APO telescope, dedicated field flattener for CCD/CMOS astrophotography, and a hard carry case. This is a true three-element apochromatic telescope capable of producing research-level image quality.

DSLR USERS, PLEASE NOTE the included field flattener will NOT work with your DSLR and standard T-Ring, as the back focus is 45mm. If you use a Canon or Nikon DSLR, you will need to purchase one of the follows field flatteners separately:

Field Flattener for Nikon users: ES-FFEDAPO-NI

Field Flattener for Canon users: ES-FFEDAPO-CA

Fine optical quality, deluxe 2-speed focuser, and 99% dielectric 2" diagonal make this telescope an extreme value!

Explore Scientific 80mm f/6 Essential Series Triplet Refractor Features...
  • The Explore ED80 telescope comes with a white aluminum tube with black accents.
  • Explore Scientific Air-Spaced Apochromatic Triplets have true APO optic and are diffraction limited at .25PV or better.
  • Genuine ED glass from Hoya Japan is used on all ED APO Triplets at Explore, for superb quality and light throughput.
  • Enhanced Multi-Layer Coatings are deposited on optical elements to boost contrast and eliminate light scatter, and contrast is further enhanced with the installation of matte black knife-edge baffles in the optical tube assembly.
  • While refractors seldom require additional collimation after initial factory adjustment, the lens cell design allows for consumer collimation. Sending your ED80 Triplet off to the factory is always an option, but is not required.
  • 80mm models come with heavy-duty 2" dual-speed focusers.
  • The included 2" diagonal has a precision-polished mirror with enhanced 99% dielectric coatings.
  • 2" Explore Scientific Field Flatter ES-FFEDAPO-00 included
  • To attach your Explore Scientific Air-Spaced Triplet telescope to a variety of mounts, we have included the "Vixen-style" dovetail. The "Vixen-style" plate fits mounts made by Explore, Meade, Celestron, Vixen & others.
