The Bresser Messier MC-152 Mak-Cass Hex-Focus on EXOS-2 GOTO system features the tack-sharp optics of Bresser's Messier MC-152 - a 6-inch (152mm) aperture Maksutov Cassegrain telescope, capable of delivering excellent high power, high contrast views of the night sky (with a particular forte for the major Solar System targets), thanks to its long f/12.5 focal length. This telescope is a compact design that squeezes a long, highly corrected optic into a compact body, making it the ideal telescope for the astronomer on the go. The MC-152's optic are mounted in a highly stable fixed position (though of course can be collimated if needs be), unlike many other designs of this type which rely on the main mirror moving up and down the tube on the internal baffle. Being a fixed optic, the Bresser Messier MC-152 relies on an external focuser. This telescope utilises Bresser's own innovative Hexafoc - a hexagonal cross section focuser, which unlike many conventional cylindrical focuser tubes, supports and distributes weight and loading in a much more predictable and even manner, leading to better support for heavier eyepieces and accessories. This focuser has a 2.5" internal clear diameter and comes with a 2" to 1.25" step down ring. Delivery is normally 2-3 business days with this product.
The Bresser Exos-2 Goto mount supplied with this system is a computerised German equatorial mount, which features the Startracker handset with a 100,000+ object database of objects and large LCD display. Once aligned to the night time sky, the Exos-2 is capable of finding and tracking targets. This mount also features a polar alignment scope for easy polar lock and also has an ST-4 port for attaching an autoguider to, enabling accurate long duration astrophotography (autoguider available separately).
