Glossary | Telescopes | General | Series | VX
The VX series of telescopes encompasses some of the major benefits of the high quality CT series while being much more affordable. The offered VX instruments come with the same high quality optics as the CT series and are supplied with a Zygo interferometer report.
All models are fitted with a straight 50mm finder and a quality 2" focuser. An aluminium tube allows the VX telescopes to be fitted to mounts easily because of its low weight. Precision, fan cooled, 9 point suspension mirror cell gives perfect support and cooling to the main mirror allowing the accuracy of the mirror to be maintained when cooling and controlling the weight distribution with the nylon support points.
A VX telescope will give some of the best images possible in a serious introductory telescope.
The Advanced version of the VX series is supplied with a mirror with a very high surface precision of 1/10PV. By comparison, the standard version is 1/8PV.
