Barska Telescopes

Barska Telescopes currently fall into three categories, the Magnus ED series, Starwatcher and Anchormaster.

Barska Magnus ED

The Magnus 65ED and Magnus 80ED apochromatic telescopes are ideal for crisp wide field observing and imaging.

The Magnus’s objective lens is made from premium ED glass (Extra Low Dispersion) and is virtually free of chromatic aberration or color fringing.

The fully multi-coated ED triplet optical design achieves a very small change in refractive index with different wavelengths of light. In short, you get crisp, high resolution images that are distortion-free.

Gazing at planets, galaxies and nebulae in the night sky or viewing Earth’s natural wonders has never been easier or more enjoyable.

Select one of the included Plössl eyepieces, insert it into the included erect image diagonal, find an object to view and bring it into focus with the Magnus’s precise crayford focuser.
