With the Solar 80 80mm f/5 Achro Refractor GoTo GPS Telescope, you can unlock the full potential of the versatile optical tube assembly through the addition of a full-featured GPS-enabled GoTo-capable motorized mount. You get the 80mm Solar 80 OTA, two eyepieces, an erect-image diagonal, along with the Cube-G GPS mount and a sturdy tripod to support it all.

  • Solar 80 80mm f/5 Achro Refractor Telescope with Solar Filter (OTA Only)

    iOptron adds a removable screw-in solar filter to their fast refractor OTA to produce the Solar 80 80mm f/5 Achro Refractor Telescope, making it ideal for viewing the sun and all phases of a partial eclipse with the filter on, or viewing the night sky with it off.with a removable front solar filter to allow the scope to be used

    The filter blocks harmful UV and IR radiation while simultaneously reducing virtually all of the intense light across the entire visual spectrum from the sun, allowing for safe solar viewing of surface features such as sunspots and super granules. Optically, the OTA is engineered with a doublet achromatic lens system that is fully multi-coated to produce bright and sharp high-contrast images with accurate color rendition across a distortion-free field of view.

    The Solar 80 is offered here without a mount or tripod, but a Vixen-style dovetail plate is provided to be compatible with a wide variety of mounts and is outfitted with a standard 1/4"-20 mount for use with many photo, video, and field tripods. With the two included eyepieces offering low and moderate magnifications, plus the addition of an erect-image diagonal, this scope can be used as a traditional terrestrial spotting scope with the solar filter removed.

    Telescopes and cameras with Vixen-type dovetail connection and a weight up to 7 lbs. are compatible with the CubeTM GOTO Altazimuth mount.
    The revolutionary GOTONOVA computerized control system is by far the most technologically advanced automated goto and tracking system available on the market today. With its large celestial object database, including all of the well-known galaxies, nebulae, star clusters - not to mention the planets, sun and moon - you'll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit with optical encoders that provide accurate GOTO and tracking. The control system also allows you to slew the telescope at different drive speeds, keeping the object within the telescope's viewfinder for as long as you wish.

    Key Features
    • Compatible with most tubes on the market
    • GOTONOVA computerized control system
    • The most easy to understand controller on the market
    • Simply a better tripod
