At just over 2kg in weight and a mere 360mm long, the VMC110L is one of the best multi-purpose grab and go telescopes on the market and is suitable for viewing the night sky and for observing wildlife.
This 110mm modified Cassegrain f9.4 optical tube delivers an impressive light gathering power of 247x and uses an integral flip mirror. This allows for quick and easy switching between observation and photography. The flip mirror has threads to accept a camera T-mount.
Other features include a curved vane secondary mirror spider to reduce diffraction effects and like its sister models, the VMC110L features a meniscus lens just ahead of the secondary mirror.
The telescope is supplied with red dot finder and dovetail mounting plate.
The VMC200L’s primary mirror is f2.5 and the compound optical system is f9.75 making the system much more compact and portable than many competitive models.
An additional key feature is the rack and pinion focusing that is placed behind the primary mirror. The use of this focusing system eliminates the image shift associated with most other Schmidt-Cassegrain systems. This is especially important when using high power magnification and for astrophotography. When focusing, the image is stable and easy to adjust.
