CFF 80mm f/6.9 Oil-Spaced Triplet Apochromat

CFF originally manufactured only a small series of 7 pieces of the 80mm with F/6 focal ratio based on a request from a friend. The requester wanted something portable & light yet good enough optically to carry around the world for capturing images during total solar eclipses. The decision to produce the scope proved to be a very good decision since the small run of 80mm telescopes sold very quickly after the initial launch. Highly portable and with its compact size, CFF recommends the 80mm for travelling, solar eclipses or birding/wild life observing & imaging. As long as CFF has some pieces of S-FPL53 on stock they can still produce a small run of 80mm F/6.9. These units will be manufactured on request.
