Recommended for astro photography
The Black Diamond ED80 is a modestly wide-field telescope suited for wide-field astronomical
observation of prominent nebulae, star clusters, and galaxies from a dark-sky
location, or can be used as an astrograph for sky photography.
As a terrestrial
spotting scope or telephoto lens, the Black Diamond ED80’s performance is absolutely superb. Ultra high contrast allows the subtlest of details to be easily scrutinized under good seeing conditions.
