( this FL-80S is evolution model ).

This type VIXEN FL-80S is my first exhibition ..
In case of the VIXEN, ( mainly) all FL- telescopes sold with Mount.( especially, previous model) 

1, First version of FL-80S was sold with SP mount ( Super polaris mount).
2, later version of FL-80S ( this one) was sold with GP (GPD) mount  ( Great polaris mount)
In Japan, having many numbers seem to be Fisrt version ,FL-80S.with small focuser.
Moreover, when I see Astromart my selling document, this FL-80S 's shape ( especially about lens cell) is not same type.
Very rare version of FL-80S . I think .
VIXEN would develop OTA ( FL telescopes ) and Mount ( SP, GP) concurrently......

This time, I could compare this New type FL-80S to previous type FL-80S . This is like miracle !! ( Now, by chance ,I have both of them )
I watched Serius by 2 FL-80Ss at the same time ( on EM-200 mount ) at the same night, alternately  .
Used eyepieces were, Takahashi LE-18mm, Abbe 9mm, Televue Radian 4mm. ( always I can trust the result using Televue Radian 4mm eyepieces).

* Result;  for normal eyes like mine , couldn't distinguish which is newer ...?

By Both of them , Serius showed me very very beautlful image ( including in foocusing, out focusing).with very sharpness !

If I am allowed to say , VIXEN added large improvement for Mount ( SP ount--> GP Mount), but
However, VIXEN didn't increase large improvement.( To FL-80S ) 

( Big difference were , adopted big focuser possible to use 2 inch diagonal, eyepiece, and removable finderscope).

I think , used Telescope , it's is like relationship with a person and person.
Even If a person has money, without relationship , it's person won't buy it's classic Telescoes. Or, If he can  buy, many times will be needed to meet the Telescope..........

In other words, now there will be a Telescope lover who is looking for VIXEN FL-80S somewhere in the world...
( this is the case ,he won't mind if the FL-80S has 2 inch type),

I think his choice will be OK for both of them.  < classic Type ,FL-80S, or new type, FL-80S >
