Vixen Telescope VMC200L w/ GP2 Mount 39702SP

Item No. 105-12050
Manuf. No. Vixen 99702

Eligible for Scope City Rewards at Check-out

The VMC200L mounted on the GP2 mount allows the owner of this package to get started in high quality observing. The VMC200L is a unique catadioptric optical system. It incorporates a primary mirror and a meniscus corrector just before a secondary mirror. By doing so, light is corrected twice on the optical path. With the optical correction placed before the secondary mirror, the VMC200L avoids the necessity of having a corrector plate and all the dewing problems associated with a closed optical tube.

The VMC200L on the GP2 mount is economical and versatile. The views through the VMC200L are sharper than you might expect in a mirrored optical system and the GP2 equatorial mount works smoothly and allows you to grow when you are ready by adding the Go To Starbook-S system. Specifications:
