Vixen Optics gives you a complete observational rig with the BT126SS-A 126mm f/5 Binocular Telescope with Pro Accessory Package.
The BT126SS binocular telescope features achromatic glass lenses
combined with anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics that maximize
light transmission while virtually eliminating chromatic and spherical
aberration. The large 126mm objectives and 625mm focal length produce a
fast f/5 optic for astroimaging or photography utilizing eyepiece
imaging systems. The large lenses also ensure copious amounts of light
gathering ability versus smaller optics. Views through the telescope are
bright and clear with true color rendition and high-contrast, and
objects can be brought into sharp focus without comas or halos.
ultra-wide angle 14mm eyepieces, that are included, produce a competent
mid-range 45x magnification, and are compatible with most 1.25"
eyepiece filters to further enhance the view. Each ocular is
individually focused for precise pin-point views for every user, and
accepts any 1.25" telescope eyepieces for changing the magnification to
fit specific observation needs. The binocular is designed with the
eyepieces set at a 45° angle to make long observation sessions
comfortable whether viewing celestial or terrestrial subjects. Viewing
with both eyes open eliminates the fatigue normally associated with
holding one eye closed, as with traditional telescopes. Similarly, the
angled oculars are more comfortable, especially when the scope is aimed
at or near the zenith. With both eyes open, true stereoscopic vision is
maintained, providing a rich depth of field rarely experienced during
A manual alt-az mount is specifically designed
for Vixen binocular telescopes and provides an easy way to find and
track near and deep sky objects, or more earth-bound subjects, without
excessive shake. Finding your subjects is made faster with the included
XY Red Dot Finder that fits on the integrated shoe. Rounding out the
platform is an adjustable-height aluminum tripod and a convenient
accessory tray. With a minimum height of 25" and a maximum of 39",
observers of most sizes can comfortably use this telescope standing up
or sitting down.
