Nexstar 80 SLT

DESCRIPTION

A step up from the 60mm model, the NexStar 80 SLT Refractor gives images that are bright and crisp. The 80 SLT offers 80% brighter images than the 60mm scope. Like the other models in the SLT Series, the 80 SLT comes with a fully computerized hand control with a database of over 4,000 celestial objects!

With its pre-assembled, adjustable steel tripod, the NexStar 80 SLT can be up and ready to use in a matter of minutes. Our new SkyAlign alignment technology and the included StarPointer Finderscope with a red LED makes aligning a breeze.
