Product Highlights
  • 8.0"/200mm, f/9.7 Catadioptric System

The VMC200L from Vixen is well suited to deep sky observing and imaging. This 8.0"/200mm f/9.75 catadioptric telescope features a sophisticated configuration that incorporates a primary mirror and a meniscus corrector just before the secondary mirror. The resulting optical path is corrected twice - this eliminates spherical aberration and field curvature while delivering sharper images without false-color. Because the optical correction is placed before the second mirror, there's no need for a corrector plate and the dewing problems associated with it. Another benefit is the elimination of spherical aberrations,

Focusing the VMC200L yields a stable and easy to adjust image. The rack-and-pinion focusing system is placed behind the primary mirror to eliminate image-shift. The focuser accepts 2.0" eyepieces and accessories.
