Despite its 3000mm focal length, the VMC260L from Vixen is relatively compact and easy to transport. Featuring an enhanced Cassegrain design - this very portable all-purpose telescope weighs 22 lb/10 kg and it has a 26"/65 cm long tube with a 10"/260mm aperture.
Light entering the VXC260L's tube is reflected off the f/2.5 primary mirror and then passes through a double-meniscus corrector lens that is placed in front of the secondary mirror. This optical path virtually eliminates spherical aberration and field curvature while delivering superb contrast.
The VMC260L delivers excellent contrast and light-throughput for serious visual and photographic applications. It's an excellent choice for both planetary and deep sky observation.
This package includes the VMC260L telescope with the Sphinx SXD mount and the SX-HAL130 tripod, the Starbook-S Go-To system, and a 7x50 finderscope.
