Vixen's premier model of telescope is the Vixen VMC330L OTA. The Vixen VMC330L OTA is a single, large Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope. The telescope has an aperature diameter of 13 inches, and a focal length of 4320mm. The telescope weighs less than 50 pounds without mount, which means that while large, it is still portable. The huge aperature makes this telescope ideal for professional use, and it gathers more than twice the light of comparable telescopes with 8 inch aperatures. The VMC330L OTA, with the proper motorized mount, is ideal for astrophotography.
