Designed for easy transport and quick set up, the Meade Instruments Adventure Scope 80mm f/5 Refractor Telescope is a complete observation rig for making observations of the Moon and planets at night, and to serve as a conventional spotting scope during the day. This iteration of the scope features a respectable 80mm aperture achromatic doublet refractor optical tube assembly (OTA) with a short 400mm focal length and fast f/5 focal ratio. Its 1.25 rack-and-pinion focuser accepts any 1.25" accessories like the two included eyepieces and 90° erect-image diagonal.

Supporting the OTA and accessories is a manual alt-az mount with a quick release shoe for fast set up and breakdown of the OTA. The mount is attached to a photo-style tripod that features an extendable center column with a hook on the bottom to keep bags off the ground or to add weight for increased stability and vibration-reduction. Meade includes a backpack to safely store and easily carry all the components in this kit including the OTA and tripod, with room for all the included accessories.
