Compact size, highly portable, easy set up, low maintenance with top quality optics, suitable for both astronomy and land viewing – this telescope is a real winner.


The SAXON 80mm (3.1″) telescope is a two-element, air-spaced, fully multi- coated objective refractor telescope. The 80mm is a well- proven performer which gives good astronomy viewing of nebulae, bright galaxies, planets and the Moon as well as excellent terrestrial views, a great general purpose telescope.

One of the greatest assets of these solidly built telescopes is portability. The light-weight optical tubes : 3.3lbs for the 80mm, and the compressed lengths of about 480mm (18″) make them “take it with me” telescopes. Their optical tubes can be adapted to fit into an airline carry-on bag, or into a hiker’s backpack. Whether they are to be used as a beginner’s telescope, a “rich-field”, a backup, a guide scope or a travelling telescope, the very reasonable prices make them choices to seriously consider.

They are quick and easy to set up and the low- maintenance, enclosed optics come fully collimated from the factory.The optical tube assemblies are held firmly by hinged, felt-lined “tube mounting rings” which allow easy installation and optical tube rotation and balancing.

These telescopes perform well as a fixed aperture lenses for both astrophotography and terrestrial photography. The “fast” focal ratios, combined with today’s high speed films, make them useful for capturing lunar and solar eclipses as well as nature photographs. With a suitable T-adapter, a camera can be connected directly to the T-mount thread on the eyepiece holder that allows closer focussing for terrestrial photography.
