Vixen Optics R200SS 200mm f/4 Reflector Telescope

Introducing the Vixen R200SS 200mm Reflector Telescope. Boasting rapid f/4 200mm optics, the R200SS incorporates a parabolic primary mirror, delivering images of remarkable sharpness devoid of chromatic aberration.

Leveraging cutting-edge technology, a specialized layer creates an optimal surface, perfect for capturing the splendor of deep-sky phenomena in observations and photographs.

With its generous aperture and compact design, this instrument is tailor-made for astrophotography endeavors focused on nebulae, star clusters, and comets.

Integration of an optional coma corrector ensures image precision across the entire field of view, maintaining clarity even at the periphery.

Accommodating 2-inch eyepieces, the focuser enhances versatility.

Vixen's ingenuity shines through in the development of an exclusive aluminum vacuum evaporation mechanism, engineered to produce mirrors of unparalleled precision.

This groundbreaking Vixen innovation permits controlled coating of the primary mirror, thus elevating accuracy to new heights.

The VC200L and R200SS models both benefit from this advanced coating technique.



  • 200mm Objective Lens: The telescope's 200mm objective lens features a substantial aperture, allowing for the collection of a significant amount of light. This results in vivid and detailed observations of celestial objects, making it particularly adept at capturing the beauty of deep-sky phenomena.
  • 393x Highest Useful Magnification: With a highest useful magnification of 393x, this telescope provides impressive magnifying power. Astronomers can delve into detailed observations, exploring the intricacies of celestial bodies and enhancing the overall viewing experience.
  • 800mm Focal Length: The short focal length of 800mm and wide aperture of f/4.0 enable the telescope to rapidly gather substantial light. This makes it well-suited for capturing faint celestial objects and offers a broader field of view, ideal for observing larger astronomical subjects.
  • Newtonian Reflector: As a Newtonian reflector, the telescope employs a parabolic primary mirror to minimize spherical aberration. This design enhances image sharpness across the entire field of view, making it a favorable choice for both visual observation and astrophotography.
  • Multi-Coated Optics: The telescope incorporates multi-coated optics with anti-reflective coatings on lenses and mirrors. This advanced coating technology reduces internal reflections and glare, resulting in higher contrast images, improved color rendition, and enhanced overall image quality.
  • Photographically Optimized Mirror System: The mirror system is optimized for astrophotography, featuring a parabolic primary mirror. This design minimizes distortions and spherical aberrations, ensuring edge-to-edge sharpness in images. Astrophotographers can capture celestial scenes with exceptional clarity and detail.
  • Powerful and Portable: Striking a balance between power and portability, the telescope features a large 200mm aperture for detailed observations while remaining manageable in size and weight. This makes it easy for astronomers to transport the telescope to different locations, providing flexibility in observation sites.
  • Ideal for Nebulae and Galaxies: The telescope's larger aperture makes it well-suited for observing faint deep-sky objects such as nebulae and galaxies. Its light-gathering capability enables astronomers to explore these celestial formations with enhanced detail and clarity, revealing intricate structures and features.
  • Included Accessories: This bundle encompasses a practical carry handle, a flip mirror, a finder scope, rack & pinion focuser, pipe clamps and a versatile dovetail adapter, ensuring compatibility for a comprehensive and convenient stargazing experience. Benefit from added assurance with the included limited 1-2 year warranty.
