Vixen - VMC260L 260mm f/11.5 OTAadd this item to shopping cartThis product is highly recommended
Code: 26301
Precision 10.25-inch Modified Cassegrain Optical Tube Assembly with finder and flip mirror


Why muck around with SCT mirror flop drama and dewing up corrector plates when you can own a superior quality Vixen.
The superb Vixen large aperture Catadioptric design consists of two mirrors and two corrector lenses, one of which is a meniscus lens. The corrector lenses, in front of the secondary mirror, virtually eliminate spherical aberration and field curvature. Focus is achieved via primary mirror movement.

If your primary goal is imaging, this OTA is an excellent optical step above the SCT/RCT and approaches the more expensive astrographs in quality.
