Your best friend for Astrophotography
The Saxon 804AZ3 Refractor Telescope contain two-element, air-spaced, fully multi- coated objective refractors. The 80mm 3.1" f5 lens with 160x power is no stranger when it comes to providing awesome "rich- field" views, ideal for viewing star fields, clusters, nebulae, bright galaxies, planets, the Moon and (with correct filtering or by projection) the Sun, as well as excellent terrestrial views. Expect crisp images and with very little chromatic aberration with both telescopes.
If you have an interest in astrophotography and terrestrial photography, whether you are learning or already an advanced user, you will find the "fast" focal ratios combined with today's high speed films extremely essential. All you will need is a suitable adapter (T-Adapter, T-Ring and/or Universal Digital Camera Adapter - email us for more info!) for your camera and you will be good to go!
Bring it wherever you go!
The feature that shines most for this telescope is its durability and portability. Whether you are using it as a beginner scope, a back up, a guide scope or a travelling telescope, you will find the Saxon 804AZ3 Refractor Telescope adaptable for all user levels and situations. The optical tubes can be adjusted to fit in an airline carry-on bag or a hiker's backpack, allowing you to bring it with you as you move. Being a reflector telescope, it is an easy set up on the included aluminum alt-azimuth mount as well as being low-maintenance. The optical tube assemblies are held firmly by hinged, felt-lined "tube mounting rings" which allow easy installation and optical tube rotation and balancing.
The Saxon 804AZ3 Refractor Telescope comes with a 60 months warranty.
*Please note, the image through all finder scopes will be upside down.
