Takahashi announces its first entry level telescope, the Starbase 80.  The Starbase 80 is offered by Takahashi and made in Japan under contract with Takahashi at a factory in Hanamaki, Japan.  From the lens coating to the final assembly, every step is carefully performed by the skilled craftsmen of Hanamaki.


The Starbase 80 is an 80 mm f/10 achromatic doublet refractor, and includes an alt / azimuth mount and tripod.  Also included is a star diagonal and two orthoscopic eyepieces with focal lengths of 6 mm and 14 mm.


The telescope tube includes a traditional peep sight, or you can purchase the optional 6x30 finder. The included Alt / Azimuth mount weights only 8.2 lbs and features slow motion controls for easy tracking of objects.  The tripod features adjustable legs to accommodate different viewing heights.
