Product Description

Optics

Introducing our SmartStar® CubeTM-A-R80 Entry Level refracting telescope system. Designed with the latest technology the 80 mm lens is crafted with a low dispersion glass that is ground and polished to exact specifications. The precision design is excellent for viewing bright stars, planets and their moons, as well as for bird watching and other land objects. Two eye pieces come standard to allow for flexibility in viewing either a wider field or a single focused object.

Dual Mount: Alt-Azimuth & German Equatorial – The Cube

The Cube™-A-R80 refractor telescope comes with our patented Dual Mount: Alt-Azimuth & German Equatorial, a.k.a. The CubeThis compact mount design is probably the most functional and flexible unit on the market. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit which is universally compatible with all telescopes using a dove-tail connection. The mount can be level for Alt-Azimuth or locked into position for German Equatorial. In addition, there are no “dead spots” – so you can point your telescope to ANYWHERE above the horizon, whereas, other mounts block the telescope tube at certain points of rotation. This mount also comes standard with AC connection. An optional DC adaptor is available so you can plug your telescope motor into your car if you’re camping or at any remote location.

The most easy to understand controller on the market 

The GoToNova® Controller is much easier to use than other similar products. The hand controller is more intuitive with menu categories better organized. It also has the largest LCD screen on the market with 8 lines of content compared with others that only have 2 lines. Using the easy-to-use hand controller, you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go. 

More precise speed control for viewing objects

The control system also allows you to slew the telescope at 9 different drive speeds, keeping the object within the telescope’s viewfinder for as long as you wish.

USB Port

The #8401 hand controller comes with a USB port that tremendously expands thefunctionalities of the already powerful system. With the USB2COM driver installed, the USB port works as an RS232 serial port. It supports firmware upgrades and computer control. With ASCOM protocol, you can control your telescope with most ASCOM compatible software. This enables you to utilize the CPU, large screen, and disk space of your  PC/laptop. With a wide selection of software, your star gazing experience will never be the same again. 

 

Stainless Steel Tripod

Made of 1-inch heavy-duty stainless steel the Cube™ Tripod is sturdy yet elegant, and gives the user unparalleled stability during operation. Solid construction joints keep your mount locked securely.

GoToNova® Computerized Control System

32-Channel GPS Module

All A-series telescopes come standard with a 32-channel GPS module for fully automated operation and alignment. Simply turn on the

GoToNova® Controller and the GPS module will automatically synchronize your telescope location and time with the GoToNova® computerized control system.

Two eye pieces come standard to allow for flexibility in viewing either a wider field or a single focused object.
