Over the years, ETX Series telescopes have provided novice astronomers quality, value and performance, with each new model bringing enhancements and improvements. The ETX80 Observer continues that legacy.

Starting your astronomy journey with an ETX80 is the perfect choice. Take your 80mm lens and enjoy close-up views of land and celestial objects anytime, anywhere. Packing your telescope and tripod at a moment’s notice is a breeze with the comfortable and durable backpack.
