Product Details

  • The Sky-Watcher 80mm Esprit ED Triplet APO Refractor exceeds expectations set by telescopes that are priced 3 times as much. Carefully designed with a triple air-spaced objective lens, each multi-coated for clarity and protection, your images will be free of any false color. In addition, your telescope captures images without the unfocused violet light (chromatic aberration) sometimes seen around celestial objects. Notice finer contrast and color in your wide-field images of the Universe! 

    SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE SKY-WATCHER 80 MM ESPRIT ED TRIPLET APO REFRACTOR

    Fixed Dew Shield

    Effectively insulate your telescope from the common nightly event of frost and dew by slowing its formation with the shield. It also refines the contrast by providing shade from ambient bright lights or daylight. Save some time and keep the dew shield on for easy storage after every use!

    Finderscope

    See the star-field as it appears to the naked eye in an upright and right-reading position. The smaller part that is mounted onto your telescope aligns itself to your telescope’s line of sight. With a larger field of view, manually point the telescope to find the celestial object you’re looking for.

    Dual Speed 2.7-inch Rack-and-Pinion Focuser

    Get precise image control with its effortless mechanical structure. Easy to manage even with gloves or mittens on. Connect astrophotography tools and different eyepieces with its accessory adaptable feature.

    Thread-on Doublet Field Flattener

    Turn your views into permanent images by attaching this accessory to your telescope. Give the pictures as gifts or post and share your mesmerizing images.

Great Scope

I wanted a scope that would fill a gap of a wide field imaging scope that would provide bright images and pinpoint stars. I considered quite a number of scopes in this category and am not sorry to have choosen the Esprit 80. So far, it is a great performer. It is easy to set up and the images are surpasing expectations. Most of all, I am having fun. OPT was great in ordering and delivering the scope. I ordered it on a Friday afternoon and had it on a mount by Tuesday evening. All the best- Mark
