The Vixen FL55SS fluorite apochromatic refractor delivers extremely sharp and bright star field images to the very edge of a full frame imaging sensor (95% light transmission at 44mm image circle).

The FL55SS has a compact 55mm f5.5 (300mm focal length) apochromatic objective lens and is a small, lightweight, grab and go telescope, ideal for the more demanding astronomer who is looking for a high quality telescope for use on the move. The FL55SS turns into a fast f/4.3 astrograph with the addition of the optional flattener lens and focal reducer. Despite its small aperture, the FL55SS, with a high resolution HR eyepiece, delivers stunningly clear views of the moon and bright planets.
