Vixen Telescope AXJ-VMC260L(WT) Description

  • VMC260L optical tube assembly.

    The large 260mm aperture Catadioptric design is a true all purpose telescope for serious visual and photography applications. Best for detailed views of planets and faint deep sky objects.

  • AXJ equatorial mount.

    The AXJ mount equipped with ultimate periodic correction VPEC provides precise tracking as accurate as +/- 4 arc seconds or less. The VPEC works automatically as you use the AXJ mount. The belt drive system reduces backlash dramatically and makes the motor noise quieter. A quick and stable motor response has been achieved. The AXJ mount carries a maximum loading weight of 22Kg.

  • STAR BOOK TEN star chart go-to navigation controller.

    The STAR BOOK TEN features intuitive 'Star-Chart Go-To' system with high definition color LCD display. The position of the telescope, the target and other useful information are displayed on the screen in detail. The night vision feature illuminates the whole screen in red, if applied, and will limit the brightness to the observer's eyes.

  • Durable and lightweight carbon tripod.

    The ASG CB90 is a compact and lightweight tripod which is constructed of durable carbon fiber legs. Also, the tripod head, leg extension part and leg brace have been reviewed completely to realize a highly stable tripod for the AXJ mount.
