The remarkably fast 200mm f4 parabolic primary mirror of the Vixen R200SS Newtonian reflector gives extremely sharp images with no chromatic aberration. The use of state-of-the-art coating technology yields the ideal surface for the visual observer to enjoy wide views of deep sky objects.

The telescope's large aperture and compact body make it ideally suited for astrophotography of nebulae, star clusters and comets. The use of the optional coma corrector allows for a sharp coma-free image from edge to edge and the rack and pinion focuser, with an adapter, accepts 2ƒ_ eyepieces.

The R200SS is supplied with 232mm tube rings, dovetail tube plate and a focus design that allows plenty of distance for photographic equipment.

The Vixen dual speed focuser is included as standard.

Aluminium Vacuum Evaporation SystemAluminium Vacuum Evaporation System
Vixen has created a unique aluminium vacuum evaporation system to produce extremely precise mirror surfaces. More accurate than the error-prone process of grinding material to form a mirror surface, Vixen's revolutionary system works by controlled layering of aluminium film. The primary mirrors in the unique sixth-order aspheric Cassegrain fitted to the VC200L as well as the 200mm Newtonian R200SS are produced using this aluminium vacuum evaporation system.

The R200SS features very fast f4 200 mm optics with a parabolic primary mirror and produces extremely sharp images with no chromatic aberration. A special layer made using state-of-the-art technology provides an optimal surface for observing and photographing deep-sky objects.

The large aperture and short size make this device ideal for astrophotography of nebulae, star clusters and comets. The use of an optional coma corrector provides a sharp image until the edges of the field of view. The focuser features a socket for 2-inch eyepieces.
Vixen has developed a unique aluminium vacuum evaporation system that produces extreme precision mirror surfaces. The revolutionary Vixen system allows for controlled coating of the primary mirror for greater accuracy. This coating is used on both the VC200L and the R200SS.
