Vixen VMC95L 3.7" Modified Cassegrain OTA
Vixen VMC95L Modified Cassegrain Telescope Optical Tube Assembly
The Vixen VMC95L features a curved vane Secondary Mirror Spider to reduce diffraction effects. Like its larger cousins the VMC110L, VMC200L and VMC260L, this scope features a meniscus lens just ahead of the Secondary Mirror.
The Vixen VMC95L Modified Cassegrain telescope is intriguing in its own right, with interesting features, including its shape and sharp optics - its built-in focuser slides the primary mirror! With an objective diameter of 95mm (3.7") and focal length of 1045mm, this f/11 performer is sure to meet your needs. Look for additional features like a built-in 1.25" diagonal and straight-through camera port, too!

Decent, lightweight scope, good to 100x on Moon
This is a nice little scope. After cooling down for 90 minutes or so, I was able to put my 10mm ***** NLV on it for nice views of the Moon at 105 power. I also tried my ***** 7mm LV (150 power) but that was a bridge too far and the image broke up and was worthless. I have performed this experiment several times and always get the same result: 100 power is about the limit, at least in my skies on this target. For the price I paid (20,000 yen), I consider this perfectly reasonable.
