Product Details

The Vixen A62SS features a compact 62mm f/8.4 (520mm focal length) fully multi-coated 4-element objective lens. The optical tube is only 305mm long when the dew shield is retracted. This makes for one great grab and go telescope!

The Vixen A62SS comes with an aluminum tube and dew shield that is finished in Vixen astronomical white. The dew shield retracts reducing the length of the telescope from 370mm to 305mm making for easy storage. Extending the dew-shield minimizes dewing of the objective lens at night and works as a glare shade during the daytime.

The Objective lens: D=62mm F=520mm (f/8.4) consists of 4 Achromatic lens that are multicoated and configured perfectly to give this optical tube the best combination of compactness, contrast and resolution.

The Vixen A62SS includes a precision 1.25" Crayford Focuser with a compression ring eyepiece adapter. The extension tube adapter is threaded in 42mm diameter for a T-ring and 37mm for commercial available filters. A scale is engraved on the drawtube. The telescope includes a rotatable focuser. This is useful when doing astro-photography for camera positioning and helpful to look through a finder scope in a convenient position when you use the scope with a variety of mounts. It also comes with a built-in dovetail attachment plate. The base of the dovetail attachment plate has a 1/4 inch thread socket (changeable to 3/8 inch thread socket). This allows the telescope to be attached to either an astronomical mount or standard camera tripod.

The Vixen A62SS features a side face flat lock on the finder bracket shoe that prevents a finder bracket from marring the optical tube. It also comes with a custom designed soft padded case to protect the optical tube and includes additional cutouts for a variety of accessories.
