Celestron Firstscope 80 EQ Refractor Telescope - 21086 Product Info

Celestron Firstscope 80 EQ Refractor Telescope #21086 is a good choice for the more serious beginning imageastronomer. The setting circles and slow motion controls on the R.A. and DEC. axes allow for greater control in both locating and tracking objects, making this equatorial telescope one you can grow with over time as your observing interests expand. The Celestron Firstscope 80 EQ has all glass components, coated optics and smooth functioning mounts, with the added benefit of slow motion controls on the mount for easy adjustments. The FirstScope 80 telescope tubes are glossy black aluminum. The German equatorial mount features setting circles and slow motion controls on the R.A. and DEC axes. These controls will enhance your viewing experience by simplifying both locating and tracking objects. When you're looking for a telescope offering a bit more versatility and control than the altazimuth models, these are the telescopes to consider. The equatorial mount is larger and more rugged than the one supplied with the FirstScope 60's. The tripod is also larger and more rugged than offered on the 60mm sizes or on most competitive 80mm models. The achromatic optics are made to Celestron's exacting specifications and are quite excellent. The standard accessories for this telescope add up to a highly desirable viewing instrument that performs superbly.
