Vixen

This impressive Japanese-made refractor features a Vixen doublet objective that includes a Japanese-Ohara FPL53 ED element for enhanced colour correction and a sturdy 2-inch dual-speed Rack & Pinion focuser.

"The Vixen's optics were excellent. The scope corrected false colours almost perfectly when in focus and showed just a little red and green fringing when out of focus. Pointing the scope at the stars showed the optics were pretty much perfectly corrected.  

... Our observations confirmed the excellence of the optics. We couldn't see any colour fringing around bright stars and got a surprising amount of detail on Jupiter considering how low down it was. Views of the 20-day-old-Moon observed under near perfect seeing conditions were excellent, with very little colour fringing around the rim. Sitting on the terminator, the crater Maurolycus was especially memorable. This scope proved itself to be a versatile instrument that was a joy to use."  BBC Sky @ Night Magazine

A Vixen 0.67x focal reducer is also available for imaging at f5.2
