Vixen VC200L 200mm Telescope with Vixen Sphinx Mount 2732 Product Info

The Vixen VC200L 200mm Telescope with Vixen Sphinx Mount 2732 is designed for Astro Imaging. Even at the edgeimage 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. The basic configuration already contains a piggy-back camera holder. You can then take digital photos both through the vixen telescope and using a telephoto lens parallel to the main instrument or you can use the Vixen VC200L Telescope for guiding while the camera sits on top. It is now possible to explore the beauty of the night sky with greater ease and stability. The SPHINX equatorial mount and STARBOOK controller have been intelligently engineered for high-speed automatic location of celestial objects. The Vixen Sphinx mount by Vixen comes standard with built in motors and the world's first star chart go-to controller, STAR BOOK, with a large full color LCD display. The Sphinx's design is exceptional and the exterior styling is equally attractive. The Vixen Star Book S features a display on the large color screen and are navigated with simple buttons on the controller. The STARBOOK is easy to use and makes the SPHINX telescope available to a wide range of ages and experience levels. The STAR-BOOK incorporates a large astronomical database with 22,725 celestial objects. A LAN Port within the controller allows for computer control and network connectivity.
