Dagoessem Posted March 16, 2014 Share Posted March 16, 2014 Hey guys. I currently own a Nexstar 4se, I'm not happy with aligning it, but I'll start another topic about that.I currently however have an opportunity to purchase a secondhand Orion 80mm ed refractor. I have been reading alot about that scope, but it was not always clear how old the comment or review of that person was since these refractors have been around since 2003, their positive reviews might be way outdated. I would like to use it for some astrophotography (still shorter exposers with my 4SE mount), which with my current 4SE is not going so great.Here is some info on the Orion I'm interested in:ORION ED80 (OTA) 80mm f/7.5 RefractorObjective Lens Diameter: 80mmTelescope Focal Length: 600mm (f/7.5)Dual-Fit 1.25”/2” Crawford/JMI Electric Focuser with controlerstandard 1.25" prisma6x30 orion achromatic finderTuberings and dovetailHome build piggy pack mountSolarscreen solar filters for OTA and finderWooden transport caseAnd a picture:https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/32948187/OTA/IMG_0007.JPGI hope I can get some feedback from you guys!Thx Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
