Description Technical Specs

Vixen's VC 200L Reflector telescope an 8" f/9.0 highly corrected, highly specialized telescope for astro- imaging. Vixen's unique catadioptric design features a high precision sixth order aspherical primary mirror, a convex secondary mirror and triplet corrector lens. VISAC is an abbreviation for Vixen's Six-Order Aspherical Cassegrain. The primary mirror is held by a retaining ring, instead of hooks, to decrease flare and enhance contrast. Includes Finder scope, Flip mirror, carry handle and mounting rail.

The VISAC System provides high-definition star images to the edge of a wide viewing field and offers exceptionally outstanding performance in astrophotography. Even at the edge 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. With its elaborate aspherical optical design, it achieves excellent image correction throughout the large illuminated field. (42mm diameter fully illuminated) Astronomy Technology Review states: "The VC200L focuser is one of the smoothest I've ever tested...overall the visual image quality of the VC200L was quite impressive...and is a step up from the typical Schmidt-Cassegrain" Read the full review in Astronomy Technology Today . With the f/6.4 reducer you get much shorter exposure times. Check out Drew Sullivan's Review and Chuck Hawks Review of the VC200L. Read the instruction manual here.
