Opticron Binoculars & Telescopes

About Us

Founded in 1949, Vixen Co. Ltd has been Japan’s leading manufacturer of Astronomical Telescopes, Mounts and Accessories for over 60 years. Responsible for the introduction of the popular GO-TO Controller and ‘world standard’ Dovetail Mounting System, the company has been instrumental in shaping the market in which it has operated both under its own name and as an OEM supplier to some of the world’s big astronomical equipment brands.

With a wide range of often cross-compatible equipment designed and manufactured for astronomers at every level, choosing a Vixen set-up means you can stay with the brand as your hobby develops, mixing and matching tubes and mounts according to the type of observing you want to do.

When you compare Vixen products to others, the difference is clear. The quality and workmanship is there to see no matter whether you are in the market for a lightweight grab-and-go Porta II altazimuth mount for a few hundred pounds or a high performance SXD equatorial mount at a few thousand. Specialist manufacturers of refractors, reflectors and catadioptrics, the company attaches great importance to innovation, continuing to pursue technical advancements in order to maximise your enjoyment.

Founded over 40 years ago, our company specialises in the design and supply of prismatic binoculars, spottingscopes and accessories for the birdwatcher and wildlife enthusiast.

Working in partnership with a small number of Japan’s elite optical manufacturers including Vixen, the benefits of these relationships are seen in the optical performance and the value for money of the equipment which we believe is second to none.

We see the Vixen astronomical range as a natural fit, complimenting our own equipment as we continue to focus on providing the best possible mix of products backed up with a customer service function worth the name.

If you are a professional, enthusiast or occasional user of optical equipment, we have the knowledge and expertise to help you make the right choice based on price and application.
