Meade StarPro AZ overview

  • 1Description

The StarPro 80mm f/11 Achro AZ Refractor Telescope from Meade is designed to introduce budding astronomers to the wonders of the night sky by giving them a complete setup for viewing the Moon, planets, and meteor showers—while providing accessories that can allow them to use it as a conventional spotting scope to view Earthbound subjects as well.

Its manual alt-azimuth mount has slow-motion controls for precise positioning and tracking, with a sturdy aluminum tripod that can be used by a wide variety of users—from tall to small. Three eyepieces provide 35x, 100x, and 143x magnifications with a 2x Barlow lens that doubles the magnification of each eyepiece for a wider range of observing possibilities. A 90° diagonal not only places your head in a comfortable viewing position, but its integrated erecting prism corrects the view for terrestrial use. Meade also includes a smartphone adapter that allows you to capture photos and video through the eyepiece to enjoy, share, and like. Fully assembled, the optical tube assembly (OTA), mount, and tripod weigh just over 10 pounds—making it highly portable and easy to handle by astronomers of all ages.
