Vixen A62SS f/8.4 Refracting OTA Telescope and Case

Vixen A62SS f/8.39 Refractor Telescope OTA

The Vixen A62SS comes with an aluminum tube and dew shield that is finished in Vixen astronomical white. The dew shield retracts reducing the length of the telescope from 370 mm to 305 mm making for easy storage. Extending the dew-shield minimizes dewing of the objective lens at night and works as a glare shade during the daytime.

The Objective lens: D=62 mm F=520 mm (f/8.4) consists of 4 Achromatic lens that are multi-coated and configured perfectly to give this optical tube the best combination of compactness, contrast and resolution. The Vixen A62SS includes a precision Crayford Focuser with a compression ring eyepiece adapter. The extension tube adapter is threaded in 42 mm diameter for a T-ring and 37 mm for commercial available filters. A scale is engraved on the drawtube. The telescope includes a rotatable focuser. This is useful when doing astro-photography for camera positioning and helpful to look through a finder scope in a convenient position when you use the scope with a variety of mounts. It also comes with a built-in dovetail attachment plate. The base of the dovetail attachment plate has a 1/4 inch thread socket (changeable to 3/8 inch thread socket). This allows the telescope to be attached to either an astronomical mount or standard camera tripod.
