In combination with the rear Field Corrector Lens, the AX103 Refractor yields clear images to the edges of the field of view.  "Precision Multi-Coating" applied to the lenses, assures high light transmission. Astronomy Magazine states "Its superb optics allow high magnification views".

The built in Dual Speed Focuser enables coarse and fine focus adjustments. Sky at Night Magazine states: "With its excellent build quality and rich feature set, we thoroughly recommend this system if you’re looking to upgrade from your current setup".

 

Color Correction

The chromatic aberration on the visible spectrum and spot diagrams provide exceptional color correction and crisp sharp images. Star images are less than 20 microns on the edge of the imaging field. Vixen's "Precision Multi-Coating" is applied to every lens surface and assures extremely high light transmission.
