For portability and low-power, wide-field viewing, look no further than the Orion GoScope 80mm Refractor Telescope. This ultra-compact, entry-level Mini-Dob makes a great quality first telescope for beginning stargazers. But it is not just for “newbies” – the GoScope 80’s convenient size makes it a true “grab-and-go” telescope, perfect for the mobile interests of more experienced amateurs. With an 80mm objective lens and 350mm focal length (f/4.3), the GoScope 80 performs relatively impressively for its modest size, collecting over 30% more light than its 70mm counterpart, and over 70% more light than a 60mm refractor. The included 20mm (18x) and 10mm (35x) 1.25″ eyepieces will aid in your exploration of the solar system as you observe the Moon’s craters and seas, the rings of Saturn, and the moons of Jupiter. You’ll be able to also delight in open and globular star clusters, in addition to a nebula or two. The tube assembly of the GoScope 80mm Refractor Telescope is attached to a stable table-top swivel base, via a quick-release dovetail mount with adjustable altitude tension. The tube can easily be removed from the base and mounted on an optional photo tripod. The small swivel base itself may also be mounted on a camera tripod with a 3/8″ or 1/4″-20 threaded post. A red-dot view finder, internal focuser (which moves the primary lens from side to side) and included 90-degree star diagonal round out the features of this compact, yet surprisingly capable, refractor telescope.
