    Explore Scientific 80 mm Carbon Fiber Triplet APO ED Refractor 

    This 80 mm Carbon Fiber APO ED Triplet Refractor by Explore Scientific drastically reduces chromatic aberrations with an innovative air-spaced triplet optical design. By coupling EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings with sophisticated HOYA extra-low dispersion glass on all optical surfaces, this refractor produces stunning, high-contrast images. The durable yet light carbon fiber OTA reduces focus changes due to shrinking or expanding that is common with other OTAs due to varying temperatures.


    Set up is quick and easy, leaving you with more time to spend behind the eyepiece. Offering true diffraction-limited optics and a lightweight yet sturdy carbon fiber optical tube assembly, this high-quality Explore Scientific 80mm refractor telescope is a perfect grab-and-go instrument for spontaneous stargazing sessions. 


    Although it is a standout telescope on its own, the Explore 80mm Carbon Fiber is also compact enough to mount on a larger telescope, which can add versatility to your astrophotography experience by separating the guiding and imaging duties. This package also includes a 99% Reflective 2" Dielectric Diagonal, 10:1 Dual-Speed Crayford Focuser, dew shield, vixen dovetail plate, and finder scope base.
