Item specifics

New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is ... Read moreabout the condition
Type: Reflector/Newtonian

This Zenith R&D 8" telescope is probably the most powerful telescope you will find, offered at realistic prices. The large 8" mirror captures almost 2x as much light as a 6" mirror, allowing you to see longer and further into the Universe. See my other auctions for the 6" and 4.5" versions, if you are looking for something a little smaller.

This telescope is of high quality, and contains features only normally associated with high-cost models, normally not available on the high street.  The main reflector mirror is 203mm in diameter(8 inch) with a focal length of 750mm - providing high light-gathering ability(almost twice the light-gathering ability of a 6" telescope)  with small physical size for easy transportation. This telescope is all you will need, even if you are a serious amateur. If you do have require something even more powerful that this, we can supply larger telescopes!


  • EQ4 dual purpose Equatorial / Azimuth. This is the top of the range heavy duty unit with precision smooth rotation action
  • Slow motion controls (dual axis)
  • Includes Polfinder (you can look through a sight-lens in the equatorial mount to line up with the pole star, for easy set-up. Once the equatorial mount has been set up, it allows star movement to be tracked with only single axis adjustment
  • Dual Weight Counterbalance
  • Spirit Level for accurate levelling



  • 8" Aperture primary mirror (203mm) - for exceptional light-gathering ability
  • 750mm focal length
  • 6x30 finderscope
  • Rack and Pinnion focusing for smooth action, with quick-change eyepieces
  • protective cap with vent holes for temperature equalisation

EYEPIECES INCLUDED(1.25" Plossl fitting):

  • PL25              25mm     (48x magnification)
  • PL6.5               6.5mm (115x magnification)


  • Extendable aluminium tripod, with stabiliser
  • Quick-disassembly feature, for quick storage.
  • Exceptionally light
  • Very stable
  • Accessory tray for storage of eyepieces during observation












In summary, this kit contains:

  • 8" newtonian reflector telescope
  • 6 X 30 sight scope
  • two 1.25" Plossl eyepieces - 25mm & 6.5mm
  • Variable height aluminium tripod
  • EQ-4 equatorial/azimuth mount (allows accurate finding and tracking of the stars)
  • Pair of Balance weights
  • Lens tray


PLEASE NOTE, DO NOT EVER DIRECT YOUR TELESCOPE AT THE SUN. PERMANENT BLINDNESS WILL OCCUR INSTANTLY. The heat of the sun, concentrated by the main mirror will damage the telescope. This unit is designed for astronomical use - use it at night!
