Celestron 80 overview

  • 1Description

The straight-through viewing Ultima 80 3.1"/80mm Spotting Scope Kit from Celestron features a prismatic spotting scope with an 80mm objective.

All the Ultima line are mated to an eyepiece and render views that are both right side up and laterally correct to the world, making them good for both terrestrial and celestial observing. All Ultimas are waterproof, making them more robust than ever before. Celestron surely is delivering exceptional value.

The Ultimas now offer the choice between 45° angled viewing or straight viewing as you prefer. Most users will prefer angled scopes because they are both simple to use for birds perched high above the viewer, as well as easily shared among users of differing heights. But some will prefer the straight-through viewing models, for these are much easier to use when hunting down the object of interest in the first place. Straight-viewing models are also usually a bit lighter, brighter, and less expensive. The choice is yours.

Certain Celestron products include their "No Fault" warranty coverage, which assures that your scope will be repaired or replaced at Celestron's option for as long as you own it, no questions asked!  The only requirement on the user's end is to ship the scope (at the user's cost) to Celestron with a proof of purchase and a check or money order for $25 to cover the costs of inspection, shipping, and handling. This warranty service is valid only for USA and Canadian citizens purchasing from an authorized Celestron dealer.

Built-In T-Mount Threading for SLR Shooting
The straight-through viewing Celestron Ultima series feature a T-mount threading upon the eyepiece barrel, allowing your scope to act as an ultratelephoto lens upon your SLR camera (digital or film) with just the addition of a camera-specific T-mount adapter.

    Celestron 80 reviews

    Ultima 80 3.1"/80mm Spotting Scope Kit (Straight Viewing) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get a lot for the price I have only used it a few times so it is difficult to say if it will hold up to much abuse. My other spotting scope is an old leupold gold ring and to be honest the image quality is similar, but that is the only comparable feature. The Ultima 80 is long, heavy, and feels fragile. It is very front heavy when on a tripod so it gets hard to use at full magnification. You will definately need a good tripod. I plan to use it for a November elk hunt in Utah so I should get a good chance to test its durability. I give it 5 stars because for the price it can't be beat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for the dollar Bought this scope to use at the local rifle range and it does just what I wanted it too. I can spot .223 bullets at 200 yds no problem. At 100 yds it's razor sharp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good and Cheap Very good scope by the price. Needs a strong tripod .

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Zoom not good The spotting scope not zoomed in is ok not great but just ok, the eye relief for eyeglass users isn't very good, I found if you zoom in at all the view becomes out of focus and when you try to refocus the scope it never becomes sharp again, the chromatic aberration is very bad. You get what you pay for. I will be ordering a Vortex scope soon.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from excelent optics & ergonomics I purchased it after some research to view eagles.The 80MM front lens allows use in low light conditions. The 20 to 60 magnification allows a very flexible field of view.The scope has a good balanced feel and well placed controls.I am plaesed with the purchase...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product for the money. This is one product that you get more than you pay for. Easy to focus, image quality as good as more expensive brands.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Scope purchased for bird and nature watching. The eye relief is poor, especially at zoom. Instructions say that a DSLR camera can be attached directly to the eyepiece with a t-adapter. I attached my Nikon D3300 and there was major vignetting at low power. At high power the photos were no brighter than the 60mm (different brand) scope that I own, which came with a photoadapter and has no vignetting. Scope was returned.
