Vixen Optics' A62SS 62mm f/8.4 Achro Refractor Telescope utilizes a 4-element achromatic objective lens design to produce a scope with a longer effective focal length than the optical tube while retaining the advantages of a conventional refractor light path. Outfitted with a respectable 62mm (3") objective and 520mm focal length, Vixen was able to get the focal ratio down to just f/8.4, making this an ideal OTA for both observation and imaging. Complementing the focal length and ratio are multi-coated optics to increase contrast, and a Crayford-style focuser which allows for precision focusing without backlash.
The A62SS is offered here without a mount or tripod for users that have mounting and support system already, and it comes equipped with a Vixen-style dovetail plate. The plate also has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-20 mounting holes to give users the option of attaching it to conventional photo/video/field tripods. A dew-shield protects the objective from condensation and glare, and retracts to shorten the overall length to fit inside the included soft carrying bag.
