Labeled "Orion by Vixen”, this model 102M, long focal length refractor is perfect for plantary viewing (as well as DSOs...) and is just in time for Mars!

This scope is about three years old, from when Orion imported Vixen scopes from Japan. Its brothers can now be found on the new (TeleVue owned) “Vixen-USA” site and it is a current model (at $798 for the OTA).

Very sharp and contrasty optics (star tests very well!) and displays much lower levels of spurious color than the more common shorter fl scopes. The images in this scope are just a notch down from those of a Takahashi FS-102 and far better than those seen with one of this scope's many Chinese copies.

It has a few very minor scratches on the tube and slight dust on the otherwise clean optics. The focuser is smooth, the optics wonderful, and the appearance (and size!) impressive. The Vixen 6x30 finder w/bracket, and the Vixen mounting rings shown in the photo are included (as are original front and rear caps).

Check my feedback and look at the photo. More information or photos upon request...

$350 shipped via USPS Priority mail in the USA! ----SOLD

Thank You!
