A superior modified Cassegrain design, Vixen's VMC260L outperforms a traditional Schmidt-Cassegrain. The Japanese made Vixen VMC260L is a true all purpose telescope. Despite its long focal length, the tube is only about 650mm (20”) long. As a result the instrument is very portable. With its large aperture the VMC260L collects enough light for serious visual and photographical applications for both planetary and deep sky observing.
The large 260mm aperture Catadioptric design consists of two mirrors and a double meniscus corrector lens design. Light coming from he object is reflected off the primary mirror (f/2.5) and then passes through the corrector in front of the secondary. This design virtually eliminates spherical aberration and field curvature while delivering superb contrast. Focusing is through primary mirror movement. The VMC260L features Dielectric Coated Mirrors for brighter sharper images.
