Vixen Optics R200SS overview

  • 1Description

Vixen Optics' R200SS 200mm f/4 Reflector Telescope is built with a chromatic aberration-free large-aperture Newtonian reflector design with the capability of resolving and splitting distant binary stars and separating individual stars in clusters. Its large aperture and moderate focal length, results in a fast f/4 focal ratio which makes this an ideal scope for observing and imaging the moon, planets, and deep-sky objects like galaxies, clusters, and nebulae. The R200SS is offered here without a tripod or mount head for those who already have a reliable rig and are looking to upgrade or add to their observation capabilities.

Optical Performance

  • Rack-and-pinion focuser resists flexing or bending under heavy weights
  • 60mm and 42mm for T-ring mount threads for prime-focus astrophotography
  • 1.25" visual back allows for observations using the most common-sized eyepieces and accessories
  • Optical tube assembly (OTA) only — mount and tripod required for proper use
  • Vixen-style dovetail plate is compatible with a wide array of alt-az, EQ, and GoTo mounts
  • Cradle-ring assembly allows the position of the OTA and focuser orientation to be adjusted for precise balancing, comfortable use, and to avoid interference with other gear or equipment
