Product description:

The Orion AC 80/400 short tube telescope:

You can take this compact telescope with you anywhere - it weighs only around 1.8kg and is only about 40cm long. You will be amazed by its surprisingly wide field of view and the clear, sharp images it delivers. Details on planets become visible and you will be able to take a look at nebulae and galaxies but not have to be bothered with any complex technical details. The ideal telescope for beginners!

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • light compact OTA
  • ideal for beginners and when travelling

The EQ-1Mount:

This parallactic mount provides the possibility of accurately aligning the optics to the Pole Star. The correct polar elevation can be set for any observing site or geographical latitude. Slow motions on the Right Ascension and Declination axes allow objects to be precisely adjusted in the field of view and followed, with a counterweight provided for precise counterbalancing of the optics.

The EQ-1 mount comes as one of two variants, with a free-standing tripod or a table-top tripod. You can find more details in the technical data. The free-standing tripod is extendable to between 70cm and 120cm high and has a tray, providing space for eyepieces and other accessories. The table-top tripod is extremely compact and light, and thus ideal for trips or holidays. The smaller of the EQ mounts is extremely light and compact and can fit into virtually any travel bag. It is easy enough to set up for any beginner and can be just as easily used by children. A motor for tracking in right ascension is an optional upgrade.

Included in delivery of the mount:

  • parallactic EQ-1mount
  • tripod
  • suitable counterweight
