The expansive 5.5° rich-field drizzles your view with delicate jewel-like stars, while the APO performance of the Nagler-designed, fully multi-coated 2-element objective produces natural stellar and planetary color rendition even at the highest useful powers. The beautiful views in this portable refractor snap to focus thanks to Tele Vue's silky-smooth, dual-speed (10:1) Focusmate focuser.
Regarding portability, the small size and lighter weight permit use of lighter-duty tripods for easy field carrying and transportation. Additionally, the padded shoulder bag provides protection and room for the scope and six eyepieces.
If your interests crossover from astronomical to spotting or birding, and you demand the ultimate in portable performance, the Tele Vue-76 is always waiting to deliver.
