Packing your telescope and tripod at a moment's notice is a breeze with the comfortable and durable (INCLUDED) backpack. The ETX80 Observer also includes a lightweight and portable tripod with dual-fork mount. This model has an internal flip mirror to let light focus to the rear of the telescope (instead of the mirror reflecting the light 90-degrees to the eyepiece), allowing attachment of a camera on the back of the scope - adapters sold separately. The ETX80 Observer also comes with a bubble level/compass to help with leveling the tripod and mount, as well as a dew shield to help prevent any dew buildup and to block stray light. Approximate assembled weight: 11.7 lbs.

The ETX Observer Series features Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™). UHTC™ gives maximum light transmission, ensuring the brightest images and the highest contrast.

In addition to finding and tracking objects in the night sky, AudioStar™ also boasts a number of features of its own, including: 30,000+ object-database, built-in speaker, and over 4 hours of audio content that educates you about objects you observe.
