Vixen Newtonian Reflector R200SS w/ Sphinx SXW Mount Product Info

The Vixen Telescope R200SS w/ SXW Mount has remarkably fast 200mm (8") f / 4 parabolic primary mirror that gives extremely sharp images with no chromatic aberration. The use of state-of-the-art imagecoating technology yields the ideal surface for its f / 4 primary mirror. With Vixen Refractor R200SS the visual observer will enjoy wide views of deep sky objects. Actual groups of nebula or clusters can be viewed at the same time with this instrument.

The telescope's large aperture and compact body make it ideally suited for astrophotography of nebula, star clusters and comets. The use of the optional coma corrector allows for a sharp coma-free image from edge to edge, and the rack and pinion focusing mount, with an adapter, accepts 2 eyepieces.

The Vixen Sphinx Equatorial Mount and Star Book controller have been intelligently engineered for high-speed automatic location of celestial objects. It is now possible to explore the beauty of the night sky with greater ease and stability. The Sphinx Mount by Vixen comes with built in motors and the world's first star chart go-to controller, StarBook, with a large full color LCD display. The Vixen Sphinx's design is exceptional and the exterior styling is equally attractive.
