At the end of the summer of 2004, Celestron introduced a new NexStar GT model
an 80mm f/11 refractor - the NexStar 80 GTL. The "L" after the GT
indicates the longer optical tube when compared to the NexStar 80 GT.
This model seems to be a limited offering rather than a new addition to the
GT model line.
The general description of
GT mount as found in The NexStar User's Guide applies equally to this scope.
The longer optical tube results in a more traditional achromatic
refractor yielding better color correction than
