Vixen VC200L 8" corrected Cassegrain (OTA only -- no mount included). This is Vixen's largest fully-corrected photographic scope. Compared with an 8-inch SCT, the VC200L is faster, is fully corrected (flat field coverage across an entire 35mm frame with 15-micron points to the edges), and does not suffer from mirror flop or other moving-mirror problems common to SCTs. These Vixen scopes are now carried by Anacortes Telescope; accessories and more information are available at the Anacortes web site. (Also see attached photo.)

If you're considering an SCT for photo use, this scope will work much better -- unlike an SCT, this scope is *designed* for photography, and also makes an excellent visual scope as well. (I'm selling it only because I'm now using a 7" refractor to do this kind of photography.) The VC200L is light enough (14 lbs) to be carried by a fairly light mount and comes with a piggyback mount that can also be used for a guide scope.

The discount new price from Anacortes is $1050 for the OTA only. Mine is in excellent condition in every way and I'd sell it for $675 (+s&h), including 6x30 finder and bracket, camera adapter, and dust caps. (PayPal payment preferred.)
