    Vixen A80MF - 80mm f/11.4 Refractor OTA

    Are you ready for a beginner's telescope that's a cut above the rest? Then take a closer look at the Vixen A80MF Telescope...

    Starting with a quality 80mm (3.2") Vixen Achromatic Refractor which operates at a focal length of 910mm with an f/ratio of 11.4, we have a small, lightweight telescope capable of its maximum magnifying power and reaching a limiting visual magnitude of 11. The telescope body measures 3.9" x 33.9" (100mm x 860mm) and weighs only 5.5 lbs (2.5kg), so it is manageable by even the most inexperienced hands - yet capable of revealing some of the most magnificent wonders of the universe. Through its "eye" you'll reveal the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, mountains and craters on the Moon, colorful double stars, vast nebula, bright clusters and more... Because the Vixen A80MF makes a great terrestrial telescope, too! Keep an eye on the nesting eagles or spot distant ships on the horizon. The Vixen A80MF Refractor telescope does it all...

     

    "If you are looking to start out with something a little larger than a beginner scope or need a better finder scope for your large telescope, the A80Mf is the one to buy. Although it is just 10mm larger than its smaller cousin the A70Lf, this extra aperture will reveal more detail in solar system objects and the deep sky. I find myself using the 80mm size for terrestrial viewing of ships on the ocean or whale watching. With an optional sun projection accessory, I have viewed sun spots projected onto a white surface. (Of course NEVER look at the sun directly). The A80Mf,, although inexpensive, is not a toy telescope. It has the same quality glass and exacting workmanship that goes into our much larger instruments." -- Mr. StarGuy
