  9. Vixen VMC260L

    Vixen VMC260L Blurb - The VMC260L outperforms a traditional Schmidt-Cassegrain and despite a focal length of 3000mm, the tube is only 650mm long. With its 260mm aperture the unit collects enough light for serious observation and photography of both planetary and deep sky objects. The VMC260L features dielectric coated mirrors to improve brightness and sharpness and its open tube design allows the telescope to cool more quickly than enclosed Cassegrain models. Extras included :- Vixen 0.62x focal reducer turns the VMC260L into an f7.1 imager Moonlite focuser Heavy duty Parralax tube rings 38cm Losmandy dovetail plate Vixen 8x50 finder All in great condition, tube and dovetail bar just have a few light scratches/marks, the optics are in perfect condition. Asking price £1,700 ovno. This is a heavy piece of kit (15.4kgs) and will need to be collected from LD2 3JP, if it helps I'm willing to drive up to 50 miles and meet somewhere. Thanks

  11. That's a fantastic shot Pete, the thin crescent moon with earthshine really catches the eye.
