- The Orion ShortTube 80 is a great little scope that is great for daytime or night viewing.
- Thanks to its short focal length, you get a crisp and wide field of view.
- This compact refractor is a great starter scope or a fantastic 2nd scope because it’s so easy to travel with and comes with a soft carry case.
- If you need a tripod, be sure to buy the “bundle” since this scope doesn’t normally include a tripod.
