Vixen - ED80Sf Apochromatic 80mm Refractor OTA
The ED 80SF was initially listed as an entry level APO, but now with so many astronomers giving such glowing reviews, it appears that we will need to reclassify this product!
The ED80Sf refractor features high-grade glass and quality components. Coupled with a medium f/7.5 focal ratio, the ED "S" series provide a sharp, color-free image of high contrast. At only 22.4", this is our ultimate grab-n-go APO travel scope.
About Vixen ED (Extra Low Dispersion Glass)
Vixen ED Apochromats use special "Extra-Low Dispersion" glasses for the objective lenses. As a result you get a superb image quality at a very high contrast. False colour can hardly be seen and does not negatively affect the image sharpness. Vixen ED apochromats offer an excellent performance in all fields, be it rich field observations of deep sky objects or high-performance planetary, solar or lunar observations. Apochromatic Refractor optical tubes have objectives that bring red, blue and green wavelengths into focus to the same plane. The ED Glass helps prevent chromatic aberration making it great for observing
