Vixen VC200L OTA Telescope 2632 advanced optical system is one of the most sophisticated optical systems available today. The Vixen VC200L OTA SX-Trim Telescope 2632 primary mirror is unique to Vixen exclusive. Vixen VC200L OTA SX Trim Telescope features a unique and highly precise sixth-order shape produced by Vixen's High-Precision Poly-Order Aspherical Mirror Molding Technique. This guarantees the Vixen VC200-L OTA Telescope to be free of coma, curvature of field, spherical and chromatic aberration. The Vixen VC200 L OTA SXTrim Telescope is also far sharper and flatter at the edge of the field than Schmidt-Cassegrain systems of the same aperture. Star images measure less than 15-microns, even at the edge of the Vixen VC200L OTA SX-Trim Telescope 42mm image circle.
Vixen VC200L OTA SX-Trim Telescope VISAC optical system consists of a concave primary mirror, a convex secondary mirror and a three-element field corrector at the base of the focuser. This makes the Vixen VC200L OTA SX-Trim Telescope well suited for observation and astrophotography of the moon, planets, star clusters, nebulae, and comets. The rack-and-pinion focusing mount accepts optional 2" eyepieces and accessories, and an f/6.4 reducer for photographic use is also available. The open tube design eliminates the dew problem that is common with conventional Schmidt- or Maksutov-Cassegrain systems and its size makes it very easy to handle. Also included is a light weight optical tube with improved anti reflection coatings, a metal carrying handle and a 7x50mm finderscope.
This version of the Vixen VC200L OTA SX-Trim Telescope is the optical tube only for those who wish to fit it to an existing mount.
