Home Telescopes Optical Tube Assemblies Bresser Optical Tubes Bresser Messier MC152 Optical Tube Assembly
The Bresser Messier MC-152 OTA is an excellent compact, yet high power 152mm / 6-inch Maksutov Cassegrain telescope, ideal for observation of the Moon and planets, but also delivering beautiful views of the major deep sky objects. The f/12.5 focal ratio and minimal central obstruction lead to razor sharp, high contrast images and the Hexfocus focuser arrangement is an extremely stable low profile rack and pinion system, which will not flex, no matter what oreintation you point the scope to in the sky. The clear aperture of the Hexfocus system is 65mm - a considerable improvement over many competing Maksutov designs.
Maksutovs of this aperture are portable and poweful optics, yielding refractor like star images and contrast without colour abberation or unwieldy long tubes. The longer focal length means eyepiece choice is vast as there is no need for exotic wide angle short focal ratio eyepieces to give planetary power, for example a comfortable 9mm eyepiece gives an ideal 211x. Delivery is normally 2-3 business days with this product.Coupled with one of Bresser's Exos range of Equatorial mounts - or indeed any other mount which takes the MC-152's standard Vixen Synta profile mounting dovetail - this telescope provides a confortable observing position, be it pointing at horizon or zenith.
