COMPLETED - SOLD ST80 (Orion) OTA


Recommended Posts

IMG_20210218_161846.thumb.jpg.b803c185359abcd72ccc61ad56531b7c.jpgHi there,

Orion ST80 here, 80mm 400FL F5 - tube has marks from having guidescope rings on it but the optics are nice and clear and the focuser runs smoothly.  I've been surprised how  good the views are through this for such a small amount of money but I don't actually need this scope given my current line up of fracs and future plans.

Vixen dovetail is bolted directly to the OTA for lightness and keeping the size down.  Vixen/Synta finder shoe integrated into focuser. Aperture can be stopped down be unscrewing the middle section of the objective lens cover.

OTA and dovetail only - no diagonal (NB I don't recommend the 45 degree diagonals that tend to come with these scopes).  

£60 plus postage

PS I have some guidescope rings with a vixen finder base that just fit this if you need them - for say £10.
