About Vixen

On Christmas Eve every year, a group of reindeer carry the sled on which Santa Claus rides with lots of gifts. According to a collection of poems written by Clement Clarke Moore, all of the reindeer have names, one of which is “Vixen.” The company, Vixen Co., Ltd., is named after the reindeer, the messenger of happiness. Vixen was founded in 1949 as the integrated manufacturer of optical devices like astronomical telescopes, binoculars, and microscopes.
During the corporate history, Vixen released the world’s first astronomical telescope with an automatic go-to system. Vixen’s technology for making astronomical telescopes is also applied in makings of binoculars and microscopes. It has lead to the creation of new devices like the ‘digiscope’ system. which can take photographs of images obtained by an astronomical telescope or a microscope with a digital camera. As a leading manufacturer of these products, Vixen will continue to improve the technology for making excellent products.
