Unleash your celestial curiosity with the Vixen AP-A80Mf-SM 80mm f/11.4 Achromatic Refractor Telescope, a stellar choice for both beginners and seasoned stargazers. This comprehensive astronomical platform combines an 80mm achromatic lens system with fully-coated optics, delivering vivid, distortion-free images of the Moon, planets, and deep sky wonders.

The Advanced Polaris (AP) mount, with its 13.2 lb payload capacity and user-customizable features, ensures precision observations, while the adjustable-height tripod adds convenience to your cosmic exploration.

 

Perfect AP telescope set with excellent cost performance

Among a variety of AP telescope packages, AP-A80Mf-SM refractor telescope package offers a best cost performance as an entry model. Unlike the AP-A80Mf, this package is available with a motor for tracking.

 

AP-SM equatorial mount

With its friction control system, the mount can be quickly moved to your target object. The built-in motor drives automatically to track objects after secured an obect by friction control system. Simply attaching an optional polar meter, you can easily align polar axis.

 

R.A. Motor module and STAR BOOK ONE Set

The AP-SM equatorial mount is supplied with the R.A. motor module and STAR BOOK ONE set (main motor of the AP equatorial mount for tracking celestial object) which includes STAR BOOK ONE controller. R.A. motor module and STAR BOOK ONE set is an integral part of the AP system. Your own system is created based on the R.A. motor module and STAR BOOK ONE set by adding other modules.

 

Stylish design

The new stylish and smart design removes a difficult image on astronomical telescopes. Together with just 3.6kg lightweight body (without counterweight), you can easily handle full-scale astronomical telescopes. As the four AA batteries for power supply is integrated inside the body and adoption of internal electrical contacts eliminates successfully external wiring which is exposed to the outside in the past.

 

Friction control system

Simply point the target objects by moving the optical tube by hands. The friction control system allows you to manually point the telescope at the object without using knobs and clamps.

 

Simple polar alignment

The optional polar meter can be attached on the equatorial mount for simple polar alignment. Even beginners can quickly align polar axis. For precision alignment, the polar axis scope is usually used, but the polar meter can outperform especially where Polaris is not visible.

 

Polar alignment scope PF-L

The polar alignment scope PF-L features the employment of three stars alignment system and built-in dark field illuminator to enable alignment while looking into the polar alignment scope. This illumination powers off automatically to prevent unnecessary consumption of power. Corresponding to the polar alignment scope PF-L, our free app "PFL Assist" for smartphone and tablet supports polar alignment by visualizing a visible position in the constellation displayed.

 

Power supply system focusing on mobility and comfort

The motor module operates with 4 AA batteries which are commercially available anywhere easily, not only corresponding to the alkaline battery but also economical rechargeable batteries (Ni-MH, Ni-Cd). For long term use, a commercially available USB external power supply such as USB mobile battery or USB AC adapter can be used connecting to the provided USB Micro-B termnial.

 

A80Mf optical tube

High quality at low price f-series 80mm aperture achromatic refractor with multi-coated is ideal for star gazing of moon crater, Saturn's ring, stripe of Jupiter.

 

APP-TL130 tripod

The compact APP-TL130 tripod is adjustable between 60cm and 130cm, combining both the portability of the photographic tripod and the strength of the astronomical telescope tripod. Tip of the tripod can be switched between rubber and metal spikes, so that it will not damage the floor even when it is used indoors.
