Vixen VMC200L Telescopes 200mm and GP2 Mount w/ Optional STAR Book Product Info

The Vixen VMC200L Catadioptric Telescope with GP2 Mount mounted on the GP2 mount allows the owner of this telescope package to get started in high quality night sky observation. The Vixen VMC200L telescope is a imageunique catadioptric optical system. It incorporates a primary mirror and a meniscus corrector just before a secondary mirror. By doing so, light is corrected twice on the optical path. With the optical correction placed before the secondary mirror, the VMC 200L with GP2 Mount avoids the necessity of having a corrector plate and all the dewing problems associated with a closed optical telescope tube. The VMC 200L 200mm telescope on the Vixen GP2 mount is economical and versatile. The views through the VMC 200l with Star Book are sharper than you might expect in a mirrored optical system and the GP2 equatorial mount works smoothly and allows you to grow when you are ready by adding the Go To Starbook-S system.
