The SIGETA StarQuest 80/800 Alt-AZ is a Newton reflector combining an attractive appearance, simplicity, usability and excellent optical properties. Its features enable observing planets, Jupiter's satellites, Saturn's rings, the Mercury phases and many other objects.
The eyepieces are appropriate for observing both near and far objects. The multi-coated lenses provide high contrast images. A Barlow lens is provided which triples the magnification of the image. It is also coated ensuring good colour reproduction. You can adjust sharpness with the rail focuser. Red dot electronic eyefinder with its variable brightness captures the spot on the desired object.
The optical tube is fixed on an azimuthal mount. It is simple to install and operate. The vertical and horizontal movements of the telescope are controlled by the knobs attached to the mount. You can adjust the tripod to the required height. The level located on the tripod will show how straight the telescope is positioned. Accessory shelf is fixed to the tripod with special hooks and the legs are rubber coated. They can be unscrewed if you are planning to observe on uneven, soft surfaces (sand, earth etc.).
The telescope is perfect for beginners and for amateur astronomers as well. It is quick in set-up and a joy to work with.
