Unlike department store telescopes, the ES ED80 is a hand crafted, precision instrument developed to last a lifetime. The world-class optics offer a perfect “crystalline looking” view of the stars and planets. The rings of Saturn, lunar craters and the moons of Jupiter are all within your reach.

No Cheap Plastic Found Here

The ES ED80 is made of solid aluminum and stainless steel. When combined with a duel speed focuser and ultra-high reflective diagonal mirror, you get a substantial, quality telescope for the beginner or advanced backyard observer. 

The Best Telescope is the One You Use

This ultra-portable telescope can be set up in minutes. The ED80’s fine finish is attractive and can be left standing in your living room, ready to take out at a moment’s notice to see the stars. The included airline quality carrying case lets you take the stars anywhere you travel.

Don’t forget, the ED80 can be used on land as well! Wildlife, scenic views or beach scenes all come into perfect focus.

One look and you know the ES ED80 is giving you the best possible view for the money.
