Vixen VC200L 200mm Telescopes and Sphinx SXW Mount 5870 w/ Free S&H
Vixen VC200L 200mm Telescopes and Sphinx SXW Mount Product Info
The Vixen VC200L 200mm Telescope with SXW Mount is an 8" f/9.0 highly corrected, highly specialized telescope for astro imaging. With its elaborate aspherical primary mirror, convex secondary mirror and a triplet corrector lens, the optical tube on this Vixen 200mm VC200L Telescope provides high-definition images to the edge of the wide viewing field. It offers outstanding performance for astrophotographers. The VC200L 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 the Vixen telescope will get much shorter exposure times. The basic configuration already contains a piggy-back camera holder. You can then take photos both through the telescope and using a telephoto lens parallel to the main instrument or you can use the Vixen VC200L for guiding while the camera sits on top.
