The GoScope 80mm Backpack Refractor Telescope Kit is a versatile 80mm-aperture, wide-field refractor telescope with a full-length photo-type tripod, plus all the accessories you need to observe wildlife, the Moon, sailboats on the bay, or nebulas in the Milky Way. And all of it fits neatly in the included padded backpack with adjustable shoulder straps, for carrying comfortably to your observing spot. This 80mm GoScope is a step up in size and performance from the popular Orion GoScope III 70mm Refractor Telescope, for those wanting that extra "Wow!" factor. Maximum tripod height is 49.5" with legs and center column fully extended.

The GoScope 80mm Backpack Refractor Telescope Kit comes with an extra set of super accessories to enhance your viewing experience, including: Orion Shorty Barlow Lens, Orion RedBeam Mini LED Flashlight and Orion Star Target Planisphere.

The Orion Star Target planisphere is a useful star chart wheel for any day of the year.

This circular star map lets you dial-in the month and day you're observing the sky, so you can see exactly which constellations and stars will be visible if skies are clear. Using the Orion Star Target is a great way for starters to plan their first stargazing sessions with the GoScope 80mm Backpack Refractor Telescope, since you'll know just where to point the telescope!

Double the power of any 1.25" telescope eyepiece with the Orion Shorty Barlow Lens.

Doublet lens system is multi-coated for excellent transmission and the internal housing is baffled to eliminate unwanted reflections and increase contrast. Threaded for use with 1.25" Orion telescope eyepiece filters.

Use the RedBeam Mini LED flashlight to see in the dark without disrupting dark-adapted vision.

You don't need a big flashlight to read star maps or see inside your accessory case at night. The included 2.5"-long Orion RedBeam Mini Flashlight does the job perfectly, emitting night-vision friendly red LED light. Red light won't disrupt your eyes' dark-adapted vision, so this flashlight lets you check charts and accessories while keeping your eyes primed for viewing celestial gems through the GoScope 80mm Backpack Refractor Telescope. Includes batteries and a handy key-ring.

You will get amazing close-up views both day and night with the very capable, wonderfully portable, and oh-so affordable GoScope 80mm Backpack Refractor Telescope! Strap it on today and head out for some memorable visual adventures.
