Details

The SkyWatcher 80 ED Black Diamond telescope is the 80mm diameter apochromatic refractor offering a high optical quality for both the visual and photographic application. The objective is a doublet apochromatic with FPL-53 glass that produces no false color images (very well correct chromatic aberration): the result is a contrasted picture and rich in details. This telescope is the smallest and lightest of the Black Diamond series and thus is particularly suitable for both those looking for a portable instrument and for those using a not too big mount: for visual use it's fine on a EQ5 mount while for photographic application we recommend at least a HEQ5 mount.

 

 


The SkyWatcher Black Diamond 80 ED offers a solid 50,8mm diameter Crayford focuser. Thanks to the fine focusing knob you can get a fine tuned focus. The optional 0,85x reducer/flattener enables you to convert it into a perfect telescope to photograph deep-sky objects even with large sensor camera (like DSLR). In fact it decreases telescope focal length at 510mm and focal ratio changes from f7.5 to f6.4. This makes it easier to record the weak details of galaxies, nebulae and star clusters.

The SkyWatcher Black Diamond 80 ED telescope can be enhanced with our complete line of accessories for astrophotography: in the picture above, with the 100mm PLUS support rings, PLUS Vixen dovetail bar, PLUS 90mm guide rings, CompactGuide 60mm scope and QHY5L-II mono guide camera. The DSLR camera (or CCD camera) can be connected to the telescope using the 1x field flattener or the 0,85x reducer/flattener.
