Vixen Optics Nature Eye overview

  • 1Description

The Nature Eye 50mm f/7 Refractor AZ Telescope from Vixen comes packaged as a ready-to-go, set-up-anywhere astronomical or terrestrial viewing platform. The 50mm aperture and short focal length optical tube assembly (OTA), plus the folding tabletop tripod, make it easy to put in a pack or case to travel just about anywhere. To get you viewing right out of the box, the scope comes with a 36x power eyepiece, a 45° erect-image diagonal with an adjustable-position eyepiece holder, and a 2x Barlow lens that effectively doubles the magnification of any eyepiece used with it. The finderscope offers a low magnification to help locate distant subjects, and its peep sight assists the viewer in speeding up the subject-location process significantly, especially if you're tracking a moving subject.
