Optically, the OTA is engineered with a doublet achromatic lens system that is fully multi-coated to produce bright and sharp high-contrast images with accurate color rendition across a distortion-free field of view.</span></p> <p style="font-family: inherit;"><span style="font-size: 11pt;">The Solar 80 is offered here without a mount or tripod, but a Vixen-style dovetail plate is provided to be compatible with a wide variety of mounts and is outfitted with a standard 1/4"-20 mount for use with many photo, video, and field tripods. With the two included eyepieces offering low and moderate magnifications, plus the addition of an erect-image diagonal, this scope can be used as a traditional terrestrial spotting scope with the solar filter removed.</span></p> </div> </div> <div class="sectionHeaders js-hiddenFeatures" data-selenium="sectionHeaders"><dl class="js-featureSectionDL"><dt class="featureTitle" style="font-size: 22px; font-family: inherit;"><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Optical Tube</span></dt><dd class="c28" style="color: #464646; font-size: 16px; font-family: inherit;"> <ul> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Use for white-light solar and nighttime viewing</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">80mm aperture</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">f/5 focal ratio</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">400mm focal length</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Air-spaced doublet refractor design</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Achromatic lens configuration virtually eliminates chromatic and spherical aberration to produce images with accurate color rendition without distortion across the entire field of view, especially at the edges</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics improve light transmission, image brightness, sharpness, color rendition, and contrast</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Resolution: 1.4 arcsec</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser</span></li> </ul> </dd></dl><dl class="js-featureSectionDL"><dt class="featureTitle" style="font-size: 22px; font-family: inherit;"><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Mounting</span></dt><dd class="c28" style="color: #464646; font-size: 16px; font-family: inherit;"> <ul> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">OTA only, mount and tripod required for proper use</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Vixen-style dovetail plate</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">1/4"-20 standard tripod mount for use with photo/video/field tripods</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Weight: 3 pounds</span></li> </ul> </dd></dl><dl class="js-featureSectionDL"><dt class="featureTitle" style="font-size: 22px; font-family: inherit;"><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Optical Accessories</span></dt><dd class="c28" style="color: #464646; font-size: 16px; font-family: inherit;"> <ul>Solar Filter: <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Reveals the sun in a pleasing yellow-orange color</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Removable filter threads onto the dew shield for a secure fit without light leakage</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Broad-band white-light filter</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Blocks harmful ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) radiation</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Allows a safe amount of light to pass across the entire visible spectrum</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Reveals surface features such as sunspots and granulation</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Solarlite infused polymer for longevity and durability</span></li> </ul> </dd></dl></div> </div> </div> </div> </li> </ul> </div>
