VIXEN VMC260L (Item #5830 and #5831) $3,499.00
VIXEN VMC260L (Item #5830 and #5831)

A superior modified Cassegrain design, Vixen's VMC260L outperforms a traditional Schmidt-Cassegrain. The Japanese made Vixen VMC260L is a true all purpose telescope. Despite its long focal length, the tube is only about 650mm (20) long. As a result the instrument is very portable. With its large aperture the VMC260L collects enough light for serious visual and photographical applications for both planetary and deep sky observing.

The large 260mm aperture Catadioptric design consists of two mirrors and and a double meniscus corrector lens design. Light coming fromt he object is reflected off the primary mirror (f/2.5) and then passes through the corrector in front of the secondary. This designvirtually eliminates spherical aberration and field curvature while delivering superb contrast. Focusing is through primary mirror movement. The VMC260L features Dielectric Coated Mirrors for brighter sharper images.

The VMC260L has very good contrast. It is an excellent telescope for observing globular clusters, double stars and distant planets.With its open tube the telescope cools down quicker than a classical Cassegrain.

Astro Imaging
The Vixen VMC260L is ideal for high grade astro imaging. The meniscus correcting lens offers a large corrected field. With the optional reducer you get shorter exposure times.

The basic configuration already contains a piggy-back camera holder. You can take photos both through the telescope and using a telephoto lens parallel to the main instrument, or you can use the VMC260L for guiding while the camera sits on top.
