The VMC200L mounted on the GP2 mount allows the owner of this package to get started in high quality observing. The VMC200L is a unique 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 VMC200L avoids the necessity of having a corrector plate and all the dewing problems associated with a closed optical tube.
The VMC200L on the GP2 mount is economical and versatile. The GP2 equatorial mount is easy to use and functions well for both the visual observer and astrophotography. The views through the VMC200L are sharper than you might expect in a mirrored optical system and the GP2 equatorial mount tracks smoothly.
