Best Bang for the Buck. Great Scope!Pros:
Strong Construction,Compact,Quality LensesCons: Comments:
This telescope will not disappoint you. I have had 3 of this model scope and I have to say that all of them were exactly alike. The optics are clear and the stars are pinpoints from edge to edge. No false color detected even on the brightest stars. This is my wide field imaging scope and it does a fantastic job. You will not find a better scope out there at this price level. I would put this scope up against just about any scope on the market and dollar for dollar this one would come up on top every time. Best little Grab and Go scope you will find. This Vixen ED80SF is a true 5 Star telescope and more and more people are realizing the potential in this little telescope. If you are looking for a compact, high quality, low priced, great value telescope then look no further. If you can find one, get it you will not be disappointed.

Vixen ED 80 Sf RefractorPros:
Flip mirror only adequate,Rubber on focuser came ofComments:
The Vixen ED 80 Sf refractor is a great low cost grab and go scope. It is light weight and portable and adapts easily to any mount that can hold 7.5 pounds. It has virtually no color and everything comes to a tack sharp focus. For the size and the price which is very reasonable, this is one of the best grab and go APOs out there. Is it as good as an Astro Physics or Televue? - No but it is not close to the price either!
