An ideal grab-and-go OTA for astronomical or solar viewing, Daystar Filters' 480E 80mm f/6 Achro Refractor Telescope is engineered with an achromatic doublet lens system and fully multi-coated optics that work together to improve light transmission and to produce color-accurate images without distortion across the entire field of view. For solar observing, the 80mm objective represents the maximum aperture that is safe to use without a front energy rejection filter, and the simple refractor optical configuration also eliminates the need for a rear IR/UV filter, so all that is required is a rear solar filter like the Daystar Quark.

An innovative hybrid focuser combines the stability of a rack-and-pinion with the precision of a Crayford-style to enable fast yet fine focusing while still being able to handle heavier rear-weighted loads as from large eyepieces, accessories, imaging/photography rigs, and/or solar filters. It is outfitted with a 2" drawtube for using larger visual accessories. The OTA is constructed from CNC-machined aluminum with a gloss-black anodized finish that resists scratches. This OTA is offered here without a mount and tripod, but comes with a Vixen-style dovetail plate to easy attach to a wide variety of Alt-az, EQ, and motorized mount and support systems. To protect your investment during transport or in storage, the 480E comes with a hard aluminum carrying case.
