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.

Review by Gary R., Posted on 30-08-2020, 5 Stars.
I have had a chance to use this scope now since last December and find it to be a fun and quality telescope. I did purchase the optional finder to make it easier to locate targets. The two eyepieces that come with the scope are really quite nice. I hope to add another one or two down the road. Weighing in at only 14 pounds it is easy to carry and set-up. The scope dampens ok although not as fast as I would like. I am going to get some tripod dampening shoes in the near future. Where I live it is windy a lot so I have to deal with that problem. All in all I am quite pleased with the Starbase 80 Achromatic Telescope kit. I would definitely recommend it for a beginner or a more advanced viewer as well.
