£299.00

Quick Overview

The Meade ETX80 Observer (AudioStar, removable OTA) is a compact, ultraportable short focal length refracting telescope on a double fork arm Alt/Az "Goto" mount, capable of finding any of the 30,000+ objects on its database, once aligned to the night time sky. The telescope is supplied with two good quality eyepieces, computerised control handset, built in Barlow lens, carrying rucksack and lightweight field tripod - meaning the telescope can be used virtually anywhere. The previous iterations of the ETX80 have always been strong sellers at Telescope House and we are confident this version will continue the tradition.
