Product Description

The Inspire 80AZ is the ultimate telescope for the novice to intermediate planetary observer! It has the longest focal length in the Inspire line for higher power views of the planets and is packed with features never seen previously on beginner level telescopes. Inspire highlights fully coated glass optics, a solid altazimuth mount with a unique asymmetrical design, a sturdy steel tripod with integrated fold-up accessory tray, an integrated smart phone adapter, built-in red LED flashlight, large projected reticle finderscope, erect image optics, and a focus micrometer for easily returning to the same focus point.

The Inspire has the most straightforward setup of any telescope in its series. Just pop open the tripod legs, turn the lock knob on the accessory plate, and connect the telescope tube to the base using the quick release dovetail mount. Your observing session can now begin!

The lens cap has a integrated cell phone adapter built into it. Place your cell phone against the rubberized friction surface on the outside of the cap so your camera is viewing through the imaging port. Secure the smartphone using the two adjustable bungee cords. Within the lens cap has a fitting that secures to your eyepiece using two set screws. Voila! High power images can now be taken through the telescope!

The mount has a red LED flashlight built-in. Turn the flashlight on to illuminate your accessory tray with a delicate red glow. The flashlight can simply be removed from the mount to provide red light where it is required the most. 

The focus micrometer is a numbered scale that shows the focuser's position. It allows quick return to a specific focus point for specific targets such as a bird nest, infinity focus, etc.

  • Easiest setup of any entry level scope.  With the folding accessory tray you just pop the tripod legs open, turn the lock knob and you’re ready to go.
  • Bold new design - iThe main telescope lens cap comes with a fully integrated smartphone adapter built-in, perfect for the budding astrophotographer. The asymmetrical mount design offers light weight and incredible stability.  Erect image optics enables a fully correct image for easy viewing day or night, terrestrial or astronomical.
  • Red LED flashlight - Stowed in the center of the mount head, the flashlight can be used to gently illuminate the accessory tray or can be removed for use as a spotlight when needed.
  • Focus micrometer - Allows quick return to a specific focus point for specific targets (bird nests, infinity focus, etc.)
  • Includes 1 free year of the “SLOOH Astronomer” subscription.  Remotely reserve, control, and image through professional grade telescopes, access to livestream SLOOH shows, and many other features – a $75 added value!
