Vixen Optics A81M 81mm APO f/11 Refractor Telescope

Introducing the Vixen A81M 81mm Refractor Telescope, an ideal choice for budding stargazers seeking an accessible entry point into celestial observation.

This telescope combines portability, lightweight design, and user-friendliness to provide an exceptional experience for beginners.

The A81M features achromatic refractive optics with 81mm objective lenses, boasting a generous focal length of 910mm and an aperture ratio of 1:11.2.

This extended aperture ratio results in stunning, high-contrast, and true-color images, characteristic of achromatic telescopes.

With a remarkable 134x light-gathering capability compared to the human eye, this telescope promises an entirely fresh perspective on the nighttime sky.

Expect captivating views of the moon, planets, and brilliant deep-sky phenomena.

Weighing under 3 kilograms and measuring less than a meter in length, assembly is swift and effortless, making it suitable for both adults and children.

Crafted to meet rigorous Japanese quality standards and meticulous craftsmanship, this telescope is built to last.

The sizeable focuser, derived from our larger SD refractors, accommodates substantial cameras without causing unwanted movement.

Furthermore, the telescope includes a foldable mirror for observations under adverse conditions and a T2 thread for DSLR camera attachment, enhancing its versatility.



  • 81mm Objective Lens: The telescope's 81mm objective lens ensures enhanced light-gathering capability, allowing for brighter and more detailed views of celestial objects. This feature is especially advantageous for observing faint astronomical phenomena with clarity and precision.
  • 159x Highest Useful Magnification: With a highest useful magnification of 159x, this telescope offers detailed observations, enabling users to explore astronomical targets with clarity and precision. This magnification level provides versatility for observing various celestial objects, from the moon to distant galaxies.
  • 910mm Focal Length: The telescope's substantial focal length of 910mm and f/11.2 aperture ratio contribute to its impressive light-gathering ability. This configuration is well-suited for capturing clear, high-resolution images of celestial objects, making it an ideal choice for both visual observation and astrophotography.
  • Apochromatic Refractor: As an apochromatic refractor, this telescope minimizes chromatic aberration, ensuring that colors come to a sharp focus together. This results in higher image contrast and clarity, particularly when observing bright objects like stars. The apochromatic design enhances the overall optical performance of the telescope.
  • Perfect Entry-Level Model for Beginner Astronomers: Tailored for novice astronomers, this telescope serves as a perfect entry-level model, providing an accessible and enjoyable introduction to stargazing. It offers a user-friendly experience without overwhelming complexity, making it an excellent choice for those exploring the night sky for the first time.

This increased sensitivity allows observers to explore faint stars, galaxies, and celestial marvels that would be nearly invisible to the naked eye, providing a more immersive astronomical experience.
  • Large Focuser with Toothed Rack and 2-Inch Connection: The telescope features a large focuser with a toothed rack system and a 2-inch connection, providing precise control over focusing. This design ensures ease of use and stability during observations, accommodating substantial cameras without unwanted movement for enhanced image quality.
  • Pure-Color, High-Contrast Images: The telescope guarantees pure-color, high-contrast images, crucial for studying planets, stars, and galaxies. Accurate color representation and high contrast reveal fine details and subtle variations in brightness, offering a visually engaging and scientifically valuable observational experience.
    • Included Accessories: This package comes with a convenient carry handle, a collapsible mirror, a Red dot finder, reliable tube clamps, and a versatile dovetail adapter, ensuring compatibility and delivering a comprehensive and convenient stargazing experience.
