Vixen SP FL-102S März 2022_13red.JPG

 

Vixen SP FL-102S März 2022_27red.JPG

 

 

 

My 1987 Vixen SP mounted 102/900mm Fluorid Apochromat. Comes with a set of Celestron Silver Series Plössl eyepieces 17mm, 10mm, 7.5mm, Celestron 2xBarlow, Vixen DMD-2 dual axis electric drive, Vixen MT-1 motors, Vixen 6x30 finder, polarfinder, stardiagonal, porroprism, camera holder, instruction manual.  

 

At its time the FL 102/900mm was the undisputed king of the Vixen line, rivaling the optical performance of the famed Zeiss APQ 100/1000mm. Incredible detail and contrast on the moon. Jupiter at 300 magnification a revelation!

 

Keeper!
