Vixen VMC200L Scope w/ SXW Sphinx Equatorial Mount Product Info

The Vixen VMC200L w/ SPHINX Mount is suitable for observation of all types of celestial objects. The VMC200L telescope is a unique design that employs a meniscus corrector lens along imagewith two high-precision spherical mirrors to help eliminate spherical aberration and yield a sharp image with no hint of false color. The VMC200L Scope from Vixen offers excellent performance for both visual and photographic use. The open tube design eliminates the dew problem that is common with conventional Schmidt Cassegrain systems and its compact size makes Vixen telescope very easy to handle. The rack and pinion focuser accepts 2" eyepieces and accessories with an adapter.

The 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 comes standard with built in motors and the world's first star chart go-to controller, StarBook, with a large full color LCD display. The Sphinx's Mount design is exceptional and the exterior styling is equally attractive.
