Vixen VMC 110L with Porta II Mount Package


Vixen VMC 110L with Porta II Mount Package

Here is one of the best multiple purpose grab and go telescopes that is as perfectly suited for looking at the stars as it is the bird in the tree half a mile away. With more light gathering capability than anything else in this price range and a extremely light weight at 4.6lbs, you might just forget you packed it with you to the top of that ridgeline (well okay maybe not!).

Donít let its diminutive size and weight fool you, many telescopes like this design are used for research around the globe and even outside our atmosphere! You are sure to be blown away by its snap focus and razor like images.

The Vixen VMC110L, is a 110 mm (4.33 inch) aperture modified Cassegrain f/9.4 optical tube assembly . The VMC110L includes a built in flip mirror and comes with one eyepiece and a red dot finder.. With no corrector plate, the VMC110L features a small corrector lens ahead of the secondary mirror.

The PORTA II gives great performance when viewing objects at high magnification, the damping and vibration being significantly reduced as compared to other lesser quality telescope mounts.
