Vixen VC200L
I received my VC200L-dg the latest version of this scope early January and have to admit that this could be the best 8" out there. I have owned a Meade 10" & 12" - TEC-200 Mak Cas - Mewlon 250 and for Visual & CCD work, this scope has them all beat. I was fortunate to have imaged M78 in January and my shot (along with others) was used to make the now famous animation of McNeil's Nebula. The advantages of this scope are many the most important being that I get 20 micron stars to the edge over a field that covers a 40mm circle. This is a must buy for astroimagers not to mention the value.

Hi what does the added "DG" in the model name imply? I always new this scope as a VC200L not VC200L DG.

I have only recently seen the DG version (as of 18/3/09) is it a newer improved model?
