Vixen R200SS 8" Newtonian Reflector Telescope
This Vixen R200SS Newtonian Reflector Telescope features an extremely fast 200mm (8") f/4 parabolic primary mirror that yields remarkably sharp images entirely without chromatic aberration. The primary mirror has been manufactured with a one-of-a-kind aluminum vacuum evaporation technology in order to arrange the high precision parabolic mirror. Vixen employs advanced coating technology to produce the optimal surface for its f/4 primary mirror. Observers will appreciate the wide views of deep sky objects this reflector generates. With this telescope, actual groups of nebula or star clusters may be viewed simultaneously.
The large aperture and condensed, lightweight body of the Vixen R200SS make it ideally fitted for astrophotography of nebulae, star clusters and comets. Includes dual-speed focuser for fine focus observing and imaging.
