The Cassini 800mmx72mm Refractor Telescope is mounted on Cassini's Super Glide Altitude Azimuth mount, which features slow motion controls in both axis for precision adjustments. Terrestrial viewing is extremely easy, due to the included erect image prism that produces a totally erect image. The Mount is attached to a very sturdy, fully adjustable, pre-assembled metal tripod with retractable rubber feet. The telescope's optical tube assembly is finished out with a 360 rotating focus housing and a 600mm focal length, for the ultimate in convenience and usability.

The objective lens is an 50mm two element achromat (color correct crown & flint) air spaced objective lens. The tube itself is aluminum, painted flat black internally, and fully baffled for excellent visual and CCD imaging. The objective is multi-coated and has a resolving power of 2.28 arc seconds. The optical tube assembly is diffraction limited at 4 (1/4 wave in Sodium light). The diagonal consists of a 45 Schmidt prism that is fully coated in Magnesium Fluoride (refractive index: n = 1.38). The Mars' Eye electronic Finderscope helps get the observer behind the telescope without losing the surrounding field of view when targeting objects.
