Each standard VX tube assembly include 1/6PV Hilux Optics, a fan assisted cooling on optics,9 Point Primary Mirror Cell and tube trims.

Additionally there is an OC1 precision Crayford Focuser, quality, fully adjustable secondary spider 50mm Finder Scope and black tube cradles which can accept all standard mount attachment dovetail plates.
