Orion VX120 GP 120mm (4.7") refractor. Clear unobstructed aperture and lots of it, a simple recipe for spectacularly crisp, magnificent views of the heavens. With its huge 120mm (4.7") diameter objective lens, the VX120 presents high-definition views of the full menu of celestial fare—from the planets to faintly glowing nebulas. And its relatively fast f-ratio of 6.7 (focal length 800mm) provides a wide field of view and capabilities for deep-sky astrophotography. The modest focal length makes the VX120 conveniently portable too, with an overall length of only 42".
To boost its performance beyond that of a standard achromat, the VX120 utilizes a 4-element, 2-group lens assembly—a “neo-achromat.” The extra doublet provides added color correction and field flattening, for a truer, more pleasing image. Full antireflection coatings enhance the light throughput.
Included is a precision 2" rack-and-pinion focuser, 7x50 achromatic finder (6.8°) with dovetail bracket, Vixen tube rings, dew shield, and metal objective dust cap.
