Had to do a fair amount of adjusting to get the scope where I wanted it. Red dot sight works well and scope is handy to use. Just hope it stays in collimation as it was meant to be a grab and go for birding and some astronomy.

Let me start off by saying that I am by no means an expert when it comes to telescopes, but I did do my homework before buying one. After a couple of months of looking at telescopes and reading countless reviews, I finally decided on the VMC (Vixen Matsukov Cassegrain) 110L because of the high recommendations. My original plan was to buy a telescope ($300-$600) with an electronic mount; however, these scopes seemed to be compensating optics for electronics in order to make an affordable electronic scope. When I looked for scope with better optics and no electronics I was disappointed by the quality of tripod that came with it (which can be a deal breaker!). I also noticed that many of these other scopes are made of plastic and receive complaints regarding their structural integrity in general. This is precisely why I chose a Vixen. From the metal tube, beautiful optics, and point-and-view design, they resemble high-quality cameras. The tripod was so durable and alleviated my previous ...

I've been out of the astronomy hobby for some time and I decided to pick it up again. I wanted to start out with something that I could easily move around and travel with, so I bought a VMC110L with the Porta mount from Vixen. I have been really happy with it. Its very light and really easy to set up. The telescope itself is small enough to take as carry on when I travel. I also like the fact that I can just grab the tube and aim it without any knobs to loosen or tighten. It also has slow motion controls so I can make fine adjustments easily. The VMC110L comes with a flip mirror on the back and a place to put a second eyepiece or camera. I found that all I needed to hook my Nikon to the back was a t-ring and it turns the scope into a lens. I was able to shoot scenery and birds easily and the mount was plenty steady enough to do so. The accessories the scope came with are a red dot finder, which I really like, and a 25mm eyepiece that had enough eye relief that I could ...
