For both planetary and deep sky observing and photographic applications.

Vixen's original Catadioptric design, consisting of two high reflectivity dielectric mirrors and a unique double menisus lens unit in front of the seconday mirror, virtually eliminates both spherical aberration and field curvature excellently and delivers high quality of images. With the large 260mm aperture, the VMC260L is a true all purpose telescope in your observing sessions.

Vixen Telescope VMC260L(WT) Optical Tube Assembly Description

  • Color of the optical tube has been changed from dark green to white.

    Vixen's optical tubes has unified into fresh white color.

  • Vixen's original modified Maksutov Cassegrain.

    The VMC features a combination of a miniscus lens unit in front of the secondary mirror and high-precision spherical mirrors that are shaped with extreme accuracy. Spherical aberration and curvature of field are corrected to a high level of optical performance for clear and sharp images. With its 260mm aperture dielectric coated mirror, the VMC260L collects enough light for serious visual and photographic applications and for both planetary and seep sky observing.
