    Question Experience with Vixen equipment?



    I looking to quickly pick up a 15mm ep and came across this.. I am simply just requesting any feedback with Vixen equipment or particularly this piece.

    I have never heard of Vixen so I'm playing it safe and asking before I buy. Have I been living under a rock? Call me out on that

    I can not speak for their low end equipment but most of Vixen's range is definitely considered premium. The company has been around for about 60 years, and I honestly can not recall a bad review of any of their products

    They had a close relationship with Televue at one time.

    I had some of the longer sizes of the Vixen NPL Plossl's and considered the 20 and 30mm jewels. If you know how a plossl does in your scope, know that this is a good middle of the run version. I would say it is a cut above a Celestron Omni or Meade 4000. Build quality is middle and coatings are higher. Worth the $39 they are asking for it in my opinion.
