Optical tube is very compact (282 mm length) and light (1.5 Kg) but offers a sturdy focuser able to hold also big and bulky DSLR such as a Canon 5D Mark IV. Dedicated photographic accessories transforms the Vixen FL55SS in a fantastic astrograph corrected up to the full-frame image format (image circle 44 mm) with very high correction and limited vignetting.
