The Vixen Optics FL55SS 55mm f/5.5 Fluorite APO Refractor Telescope is designed to deliver outstanding lunar and planetary views. This model is a high-performance, top-of-the-range fluorite apochromat for mobile astrophotography and observers.

Its apochromatic refractor design virtually eliminates chromatic aberration, and is complemented by the use of extra low-dispersion fluorite glass and broadband fully multi-coatings that maximize light transmission across the entire spectrum and provide improved color correction.

The fast focal ratio makes it ideal for imaging and allows you to use extremely short exposure times. Plus, its large 44mm imaging circle will cover large camera sensors to enable you to capture full frame images without vignetting. It displays razor-sharp and bright stars across the entire field of view even for large nebulae or comets.

Thanks to its small size and lightweight compact design, this high-quality fluorite refractor is ideal for excursions and air travel.

Despite the small aperture, the FL55SS features a high-resolution HR eyepiece that produces stunningly clear images of the moon and the bright planets.

When used for astrophotography, it delivers razor-sharp images of stars that are guaranteed to impress.
