The Vivitar Telephoto Mirror Lens is a telephoto lens in a lightweight, compact form. The advanced reflex mirror design of this lens makes possible its compact size and its aluminum alloy construction keeps it light and durable.
Super Spectra Coatings on the lens elements provide excellent light transmission and minimal flaring. Upgraded mirror design and quality optics allow this lens, which is a fraction of the size of most ultra-telephoto lenses, to offer sharp imagery and little color aberration,
even under adverse lighting conditions. The Vivitar Mirror lens is a great asset for any photographer,
whether seasoned pro who appreciates its portable size or ambitious amateur exploring the creative potential of telephoto photography.
This lens is compatible with almost every film and digital SLR camera and will allow you to reach focal lengths which normally require a large, expensive lens.
Note! Since a reflex lens is not equipped with a diaphragm system, the use of filters and the shutter speed control play an important factor in the control of light and contrast.
In order to compensate focusing when normal positioning may be altered due to extreme temperature change, the focusing ring has been designed to allow rotation beyond the fixed marks of the distance scale. To avoid mistakes, always focus while looking through the viewfinder.

Our fourth generation planetary imaging camera provides an affordable way to acquire stunning astrophotos of our neighbors in the solar system
Features a 1/3 inch format color CMOS imaging chip with a very small 3.6 microns x 3.6 microns pixel size for exceptional resolution
Camera sensor features a 1280 x 1024 pixel layout with 1.3 megapixel resolution, progressive scan imaging uses all pixels for each exposure
Features a 1.25 inch nosepiece threaded for 1.25 inch filters so you can enhance your astrophotos easily
Astrophotography is an immensely rewarding hobby, but the challenges involved can seem difficult to beginners. Some of the best objects to start on are the planets of our own solar system and the Moon. Big, bright targets like Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and the Moon make wonderful models as they strut their way around the Sun on their celestial catwalk. The planets are relatively easy to locate and identify in the night sky, so solar system objects prime imaging targets for all astrophotographers. The Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imager IV is equipped with features that make it easy to take your own images of objects in our solar system. Its 1/3-inch format CMOS imaging sensor with a 1280 x 1024 pixel layout can take sharply detailed planetary and lunar images. Each pixel is a mere 3.6micronm x 3.6micronm in size for exceptional image resolution in 24-bit RGB color. Since the 8-bit output StarShoot Solar System Color Imager IV is progressive scan, all pixels will be used for each and every exposure. At full 1280 x 1024 resolution, you can capture up to 15 frames per second. By stacking multiple exposures to create a single picture, you can increase image detail significantly.
