Home Telescopes Vixen Telescopes Vixen VMC200L Optical Tube Assembly
The Vixen VMC200L is a telescope that will take amazing astrophotographs and also deliver great visual images. The Vixen VMC200L Reflector Telescope is a unique 200mm 8 inch 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. The end result is that spherical aberration and field curvature are corrected to a high degree of optical performance. 5 Year Warranty.The VMC200L's primary mirror is f/2.5; the compound optical system is f/9.75. This makes the system much more compact and portable than its competition. 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. An additional key feature is the rack and pinion focusing that is placed behind the primary mirror. The use of this focusing system eliminates the image shift associated with most other SCT systems. This is especially important when using high power magnification or during astro-photography. When focusing, the image is stable and easy to adjust. Delivery of these fine instruments is normally around three business days.SpecificationsOptical Design: Modified Catadioptric ReflectorAperture: 200mmFocal Length: 1950mmFocal Ratio: f/9.75Coating: Multi CoatingResolving Power: .58 arc secLimiting Magnitude: 13.3Light Gathering Power: 816xAdapter Thread: 60mm/50.8mmAstrophotography: Prime Focus, Eyepiece Projection & Afocal ImagingVisual Back: Compression RingOptical Tube Length: 20" (510mm)Optical Tube Diameter: 9.1" (232mm)Optical Tube Weight: 13 lbDove Tail Mounting Rail; Carry HandleFlip Mirror; 7x50 Finder ScopePlease note - eyepieces not included
