Vixen - R200SS 200mm Newtonian Reflector Telescope with GPD2 Mount
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 design of the GPD2 mount accomodates the atachment of heavier optical tubes and provides accurate tracking of objects. Add the new Vixen Starbook S package for complete Go-To capabilities. Choose this package if you think that you’ll want to own just one mount able to expand the optical system you put on it. Here you are getting a worm gear machined to 2/1000ths of a millimeter precision that allows for extremely critical tracking performance needed for Astrophotography. Definitely a package that will keep the best of Amateur Astronomers happy for years to come and still easy to use. Add the D2M Motor Drive Set for easy tracking. The DD2 Motor Set includes DD-2 controller, two MT-1WT motors and a battery box.
