The legendary Orion 80ED 80mm Aperture 600mm Focal Length, F/7.5 Apochromatic Doublet Refractor Telescope with Tube Rings, 8" Dovetail and Soft Case. I'm a retired US Air Force Space Operations Officer and amateur astronomer simplifying my astronomy equipment as I get older. I have scopes on either side of this one so have (hesitantly) decided to sell this beauty of recognized exceptional value in the amateur astronomy world.

A no-nonsense f/7.5 apochromatic refractor telescope offered at an unbelievably low price

Transmits spectacular views of deep-sky delicacies as well as closer solar system targets for visual enjoyment or astrophotography pursuits

80mm refractor objective doublet includes one element of high-quality FPL-53 ED or extra-low dispersion glass, which virtually eliminates false color--BEAUTIFUL OPTICS rivaling that of a triplet--at a much lower price!

Features a smooth-adjusting 2" aluminum Crayford focuser

Optical tube assembly only, does not include telescope mount or tripod

--A set of 2 proper sized 100mm Orion cast-aluminum telescope tube rings with quick-release, hinged clamp knobs and felt lining. One ring has 1/4"-20tpi piggyback camera adapter; the other tube ring has a threaded 1/4"-20tpi hole
--8" Svbony Vixen-style aluminum dovetail bar with custom recessed bolt holes to allow sliding in dovetail mount
--A very nice Hakuba padded soft case with zippered pouch on front for accessories and removable shoulder carrying strap. The entire assembly fits in the case without removing the dew shield, rings, or dovetail.
--Front lens cover is the dual type with a 52mm on axis secondary cover allowing to stop it down to f/11--great for bright object viewing e.g. lunar.
--2" rear dust cap

Come get it before I change my mind and decide to keep it. Everyone I know who has sold one of these lives to regret it and usually buys another one!

Very good cosmetic condition. Stunning Optics!
