Product description

If you are looking to start out with something a little larger than a beginner scope and want to spend the time to learn the sky instead of relying on a computer to slew the scope over to each object, this is the package for you The A80Mf attached to the Porta II Mount moves easily and is stable when stopped. No tweaking of the hand controls is necessary like some other brands. A perfect telescope for the beginner astronomer or an ideal first telescope for a child.
