R200SS w/GP2 Equatorial Mount Description
The remarkably fast 200mm (8") f/4 parabolic primary mirr or of the R200SS Newtonian reflector gives extremely sharp images with no chromatic aberration. The use of state-of-the-art coating technology yields the ideal surface for its f/4 primary mirror.

The visual observer will enjoy wide views of deep sky objects. Actual groups of nebula or clusters can be viewed at the same time with this instrument.

The telescope's large aperture and compact body make it ideally suited f or astrophotography of nebulae, star clusters and comets. The use of the optional coma corrector allows for a sharp coma-free image from edge to edge, and the rack and pinion focusing mount, with an adapter, accepts 2 eyepieces.

The R200SS comes standard with the 7x50 finder, 232mm tube rings, dovetail tube plate and new focus design with more distance for photographic equipment, as well as being compatible with the GP2, GPD2 and Sphinx mounts.

The 7x50 achromatic finderscope has a field of view of 6.8" and a Kellner type eyepiece.

The GP2 equatorial mount comes standard with tripod and counterweight. It is easy to use and functions well for both the visual observer and astrophotography. The declination and right-ascension functions with 144-tooth aluminum worm gears allowing accurate tracking. Motion is controlled by included control knobs for accurate slewing. The polar altitude adjustment varies from 0° to 62° in altitude.

Optional single axis or dual axis motors and controllers are available as is a polar alignment telescope and setting circles. Add the new Vixen Starbook S with built in starchart for full Go-To capabilities.
