The Orion ShortTube 80 refractor is perfect being used as a guide scope with a CCD autoguider. It is a compact telescope with wide-field optics that deliver bright images. This OTA version does not include any accessories.
The 1.25" Orion Eyepiece Extension Tube provides 2" of extra focuser back travel sometimes needed to achieve focus for short-range terrestrial viewing. Includes 2 locking thumbscrews and is threaded for filters.
