Vixen - R200SS 200mm Newtonian Reflector Telescope with GP2 Mount
The Scope: The remarkably fast 200mm (8") f/4 parabolic primary mirror of the Vixen R200SS Newtonian Reflector gives extremely sharp images with no chromatic aberration. The use of state-of-the-art coating technology yields the ideal surface for its f/4 primary mirror. The visual observer will enjoy wide views of deep sky objects. Actual groups of nebula or clusters can be viewed at the same time with this instrument.
The telescope's large aperture and compact body make it ideally suited for astrophotography of nebulae, star clusters and comets. The use of the optional coma corrector allows for a sharp coma-free image from edge to edge, and the rack and pinion focuser, with an adapter, accepts 2 eyepieces.
The R200SS Newtonian Reflector features Vixen's compression ring and new Dual Speed Focuser for fine focus observing.
The Mount: The GP2 Equatorial Mount is an excellent choice for observers who want a simple, yet sturdy mount, with the ability to grow into a go-to system. Strong and lightweight, smooth and accurate tracking, are features that make Vixen's GP2 Equatorial Mount a platform for serious astronomers. This easy to use equatorial mount functions well for both the visual observer and the astrophotographer.
