Reveal celestial wonders like the desolate beauty of the lunar terrain, the serene structure of Saturn’s rings or the brightest deep sky treasures of the Messier catalog with saxon 80mm Apochromatic FCD100 Air-Spaced ED Triplet Refractor Telescope.

This telescope features Japanese made Hoya FCD100 optics. Relying on technological innovation, we have successfully launched the high-performance optical glass at the apex of the FCD family. Combining it with optical glass of high refractive index allows us to achieve unprecedented advanced chromatic aberration correction. Hoya FCD100 is considered the best glass ever produced by Hoya.

Having a true diffraction-limited optical design and sized to encourage spontaneous stargazing sessions, this high-quality telescope is a perfect grab-and-go instrument for exploring the skies.

Featuring an air-spaced triplet optical design that virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations, this telescope generates brilliant high-contrast images by combining genuine HOYA FCD100 extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer deposition on all optical surfaces.

In addition, this amazing little scope also includes a dual speed (10:1) 2.5" focuser with very rigid design and strong support. Up to 4.5kgs of gear can be loaded onto this focuser.

Although it is a standout telescope on its own, the 80mm also is compact enough to mount on a larger telescope, which can add versatility to your astrophotography experience by separating the guiding and imaging duties.

saxon 28mm 2’’ LET Eyepiece

Featuring a 3-element design, these fully-coated eyepieces provide outstanding field correction and long eye-relief. Stray light is eliminated by the fold back rubber eyecups; standard with every Super eyepiece.

-

saxon 9x50 Erecting Finderscope (90 degree)

The 9x magnification and 50mm aperture on it will give you crisp and clear images as you search for stars and planets, while your neck will thank you for comfortable viewing angle afforde by the 90 degree viewing angle as you browse the night sky.

saxon 2.5" Dual Speed Focuser

It is an improvement to the traditional rack and pinion focuser and offers improved precision and smoother control for optimised views. This focuser offers 2.5'' speed - both smooth and coarse focusing compared to single focus on most entry level telescopes.

-

saxon 2'' Dielectric Diagonal 1.25'' adapter (90 degree)

It is a high performance diagonal for high-end telescopes. The high reflectivity of the mirror (99%) offer a bright image without loosing luminosity. The high optical correction of the mirror (1/10 lambda) does not compromise the resolution or the contrast of the image. The CNC body of the diagonal is both solid and elegant, the telescope side connection in threaded for 2″ filters while the eyepiece side has a brass compression ring for not damaging the barrels of the eyepieces.

Spacer

It's useful for most types of astrophotography. Made of finely machined and anodized aluminum.
