Refractor Telescope Meade Polaris 80mm EQ
The Polaris 80mm Telescope has an 80mm aperture and a focal length of 900mm (f/11.3). The stable Equatorial Mount includes slow-motion control cables that allow for easy and quick viewing across different directions. With the included accessories such as a Red-Dot Viewfinder, 2x Barlow Lens, and (3) Eyepieces that provide varying levels of magnification – this will give you versatility with short and long-range distances, the Polaris 80mm comes complete with everything you need to view the wonders of the night sky the first time out. When fully assembled, the Polaris 80mm weighs approximately 17.9 lbs.
Each Polaris telescope also comes with AutoStar® Suite Astronomer Edition Software on DVD. This bonus DVD will help you learn the night sky and displays more than 10,000 celestial objects including planets, stars, galaxies, and nebulae.
The Polaris Series refractor telescopes come in a variety of apertures including 70mm, 80mm & 90mm refractors as well as 114mm, 127mm & 130mm reflectors. The 70mm & 80mm models feature a smaller style while 90mm and above get a larger design. These telescopes deliver bright and clear images with the greatest detail and enable observation of the craters of the Moon, Saturn’s rings, and even Jupiter’s surface. Meade’s Polaris telescopes are perfect for the astronomer who wishes to manually observe and discover the night sky with ease.

Refractor telescope includes an adjustable-height stainless steel tripod provides a stable platform for sky-watching, and the included red-dot finder makes polar alignment faster and it’s an easy tool for quick observations. An included 90° erect-image diagonal makes looking through the scope more comfortable, especially when aiming the telescope toward the zenith. The diagonal’s prism corrects images horizontally and vertically, allowing the scope to be used for terrestrial viewing as well. An integrated dew-shield helps to prevent condensation on the objective lens, while blocking stray peripheral light from interfering with celestial observations.
