The Luna 80 is a mid-range beginners' scope. Recommended for beginners requiring a slightly more powerful telescope. The focuser is made of metal, just like its finderscope, which can be removed from the telescope in a second for transportation.
Under perfect conditions even the Cassini-division can be observed in Saturn's ring system, or the Great Red Spot on Jupiter can also be observed, just like martian continents. Under dark skies many globular clusters and some galaxies can also be seen.
The objective lens is a 80mm air spaced Fraunhofer lens with 900 mm focal length gathering 31% more light than the 70 mm model, with increased resolution.
The telescope comes with two Barium eyepieces (10 and 25 mm) resulting in 36x and 90x magnifications. The mount is an EQ-2 model which is similar to EQ-1 but is more robust. The mount can be equipped with a clock drive as well. A star diagonal is also included to the set. The scope can be used with Amici-prism as well which provides an erect image for daytime observations.
