Maksutov Newtonian optics with the award winning NEQ6 PRO combined to provide a very high specification package for advanced visual and astro imaging applications. Maksutov Newtonian design combines the best features from the Newtonian Reflector and the Maksutov-Cassegrain to create a telescope design that provides truly stunning image quality, providing high-contrast, perfectly flat images, free from false colour. The Maksutov Newtonian design provides large aperture Apochromatic performance, with exceptional field correction, in a compact, amazingly affordable package. Stars appear as classic pinpoints across the entire field. Perfectly optimised for modern digital SLR cameras. The premium optics are housed in a robust rolled-steel tube for excellent mechanical integrity. Five internal knife-edge baffles are included to eliminate internal reflections and further enhance contrast. The Primary Mirror is made of low thermal expansion Pyrex glass for a significantly reduced cool down time.
Compared to a similarly sized Schmidt Newtonian, the Maksutov Newtonian yields a sharper and more contrasty image. Naturally, the Maksutov Newtonian is an excellent visual performer too offering contrast an resolution usually only seen in high end apochromat refractors!For amateur astronomers seeking superior equatorial control and the ease of a precision computerized GOTO system, the NEQ6 PRO SynScanTM is your answer. The Sky-Watcher NEQ6 PRO SynScanTM is designed with the novice user in mind. With the user-friendly pushbutton hand control, locating and viewing the treasures of the night sky becomes as easy as a walk in the park. The hand control allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies at the touch of a button. The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,000 + objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. The NEQ6 SynScanTM also comes with features that advanced astronomers can appreciate:Specifications:Highest Practical Power (Potential): x570 Diameter of Primary Mirror: 190mm Diameter of Secondary Mirror/Central Obstruction: 50mm/26% Telescope Focal Length: 1000mm (f/5.26) 9x50 Right-Angled Finderscope Supplied without Eyepieces Dual speed Ultra-smooth, backlash-free 2" Crayford Focuser 2" to 1.25" Eyepiece adaptor Power Supply Required: 12 VDC 2Amp Tip positive (not supplied) Motor Type: Micro step driven 1.8° stepper motors Resolution: 0.144 arc sec (or 9,024,000 steps/rev.)
