  • The Vixen ED 80SF Refractor Telescope is a terrific optical tube that has gotten glowing reviews from numerous astronomers. The Vixen ED80Sf Telescope features high-grade glass and quality components. Coupled with a medium f/7.5 focal ratio, the ED 80Sf delivers a sharp, color-free image of high contrast. At only 22.4", this is our ultimate grab-n-go APO travel scope. The Vixen ED80Sf Refractor Scope comes complete with Aluminum Case, Flip Mirror, finder Scope and Rings.
  • The Vixen Porta II AltAz Mount is a solid alt-azimuth mount with a 20lb payload capacity and Slow Motion Flexible Handles to minimize vibrations and keep your view sharp. This is very useful in searching and tracking celestial objects. The Sky at Night says: "When moving the telescope around the sky with this mount, we found any vibrations quickly dampened down. The whole system was very stable, even when the tripod was at its maximum extended height". The mount head is easily removed to allow for a switch to a heavier tripod. In addition, this is a great mount for terrestrial viewing. With no locks or clutches, our gear drives make it a simple matter to precisely track a planet or a ship on the horizon by turning the elevation and/or azimuth control handles. The Vixen Porta II Mount features slow motion control of both axes, solid central bolt for easy tripod change, flex handles and accessory tray.
