Vixen Optics' A62SS 62mm f/8.4 Achro Refractor Telescope utilizes a 4-element achromatic objective lens design to produce a scope with a longer effective focal length than the optical tube while retaining the advantages of a conventional refractor light path. Outfitted with a respectable 62mm (3") objective and 520mm focal length, Vixen was able to get the focal ratio down to just f/8.4, making this an ideal OTA for both observation and imaging. Complementing the focal length and ratio are multi-coated optics to increase contrast, and a Crayford-style focuser which allows for precision focusing without backlash.

Vixen Optics' A62SS 62mm f/8.4 Achro Refractor Telescope utilizes a 4-element achromatic objective lens design to produce a scope with a longer effective focal length than the optical tube while retaining the advantages of a conventional refractor light path. Outfitted with a respectable 62mm (3") objective and 520mm focal length, Vixen was able to get the focal ratio down to just f/8.4, making this an ideal OTA for both observation and imaging. Complementing the focal length and ratio are multi-coated optics to increase contrast, and a Crayford-style focuser which allows for precision focusing without backlash.

The A62SS is offered here without a mount or tripod for users that have mounting and support system already, and it comes equipped with a Vixen-style dovetail plate. The plate also has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-20 mounting holes to give users the option of attaching it to conventional photo/video/field tripods. A dew-shield protects the objective from condensation and glare, and retracts to shorten the overall length to fit inside the included soft carrying bag.

Optical Performance

  • 62mm (3") aperture
  • f/8.4 focal ratio
  • 520mm effective focal length
  • Achromatic refractor optical design
  • Anti-reflection multi-coated optics for improved light transmission and image contrast
  • 4-element achromatic objective lens helps to reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations for true color rendition without distortion across entire field of view
  • Resolution: 1.87 arc sec
  • Factory-installed finderscope mount
  • Retractable dew shield

Focuser

  • 1.25" diameter drawtube
  • Single-speed Crayford-style
  • Toothless friction system allows for super-fine precision focusing without backlash
  • Adapter Thread: 42mm for T-ring, 37mm for filter
  • Rotatable Focuser: For astrophotography, allows for precise camera positioning; for observation, helps to position OTA orientation for comfortable viewing

Mounting

  • Mount and tripod required
  • Vixen-style dovetail plate
  • 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting holes for photo/video/field tripod heads
