Outfitted with a large 80mm aperture and an apochromatic lens configuration, the Vixen Optics A80M 80mm f/11.4 APO Refractor Telescope is an ideal choice for making detailed observations of the Moon and planets, as well as splitting binary stars and discerning details of distant galaxies and nebulae. Crown and flint glass lens elements, combined with multi-coated optics work together to produce high-contrast images with accurate color rendition across the entire field of view.

This optical performance also makes the A80M an ideal choice for astrophotography. To help make imaging easier, Vixen includes a 90° flip mirror with two 1.25" eyepiece holders. When using an imaging rig, set it at the back of the diagonal and insert an eyepiece at the 90° position, this way with a simple flip of the mirror the tracking accuracy can be checked and corrected without removing and re-mounting the delicate photo setup. This OTA is manufactured and assembled in Japan, and is offered here without a mount or tripod, and will need to obtained separately to be used correctly.
