Vixen 114ED SS Apochromatic refractor OTA
Immaculate example of this affordable APO class scope, complete with caps, rings, 7x50 finderscope and vixen GP style dovetail and carrying handle. Also includes 2" adapter. This scope is in truly 'like new' condition. Rings will bolt up to a Losmandy DUP (not included).
Per mfr: The ED "SS" refractors feature a 2-group 3-element optical design with ED glass to dramatically reduce the secondary spectrum and produce outstanding sharp images with high-contrast for both visual and astrophotography applications. A third field-flattener lens, built into the focusing drawtube, elimates astigmatism and field curvature.
