Vixen VC200 Telescopes and GPD2 Mount w/ Optional D2M Motor Set Product Info

The Vixen VC200 Telescope and GPD2 Telescope Mount Set 99852M / 99852 is an 8" f/9.0 highly corrected, highly specialized telescope for astro imaging. With its elaborate aspherical optical design it achieves excellent image correction imagethroughout the large illuminated field. (42mm diameter fully illuminated). The Vixen VC200 99852M is designed for astro imaging. Even at the edge of the 35mm film format (larger CCD chips) stars are sharp ( smaller than 15 micrometers) This is smaller than the resolution of fine quality CCD cameras, which means that the telescope does not limit the image quality. With the recommended f/6.4 reducer you get much shorter exposure times. The basic configuration already contains a piggy-back camera holder. You can take digital photos both through the telescope and using a camera telephoto lens parallel to the main instrument or you can use the VC200 200mm telescope for guiding while the photo camera sits on top. The Vixen GPD2 equatorial mount is the stronger and heftier of the Vixen GP telescope mounts. With it's solid steel R. A. and Declination axes and brass worm gears this mount will hold up to years of heavy use. In order to assure accurate tracking for astro photography the worm, gears are especially machined to a very high precision that minimizes periodic error. Add the D2M motor set for accurate tracking.
