    Optics

    Introducing our SmartStar® CubeTM-E-R80 Entry Level telescope system. Designed with the latest technology the 80 mm lens is crafted with a low dispersion glass that is ground and polished to exact specifications. The precision design is excellent for viewing bright stars, planets and their moons, as well as for bird watching and other land objects. Two eye pieces come standard to allow for flexibility in viewing either a wider field or a single focused object.

    Alt-Azimuth Mount– The Cube™

    The SmartStar® CubeTM-E-R80 comes with our patented Alt-Azimuth telescope mount, a.k.a. The Cube™.This compact mount design is probably the most functional and flexible unit on the market. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit which is universally compatible with all telescopes using a dove-tail connection. In addition, there are no “dead spots” – so you can point your telescope to ANYWHERE above the horizon, whereas, other mounts block the telescope tube at certain points of rotation. This mount also comes standard with AC connection. An optional DC adaptor is available so you can plug your telescope motor into your car if you’re camping or at any remote location

    The most easy to understand controller on the market

    The GoToNova® Controlleris much easier to use than other similar products. The hand controller is more intuitive with menu categories better organized. It also has the largest LCD screen on the market with 4 lines of content compared with others that only have 2 lines. Using the easy-to-use hand controller, you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go.

    More precise speed control for viewing objects

    The control system also allows you to slew the telescope at 5 different drive speeds, keeping the object within the telescope’s viewfinder for as long as you wish.

    Stainless Steel Tripod

    Made of 1-inch heavy-duty stainless steel the CubeTripod is sturdy yet elegant, and gives the user unparalleled stability during operation. Solid construction joints keep your mount locked securely. With an all-metal support system your valuable telescope will keep still even on a windy night.

    GoToNova® Computerized Control System

    The revolutionary GoToNova® computerized control system is by far the most technologically advanced automated tracking system available on the market today.
