Combining the superb 127mm aperture Maksutov Cassegrain optics and the feature packed AZ5 alt-azimuth mount with precise slow motion controls results in a fast setup premium system for visual observers. The compact but powerful Skymax-127 is ideal for the observation of double-stars, and the surface detail of the Moon and planets. With 127mm of light collecting area many deep sky objects are clearly visible in this instrument, objects like the Orion nebula will show great detail in the eyepiece. Its high-resolution, long focal length optical system is multi-coated to maximise contrast and image sharpness. The supplied erect image diagonal provides an upright, fully corrected image allowing the telescope to be also used for terrestrial observing.
The elegant, well engineered and easy to use AZ5 Deluxe Alt-Azimuth mount provides excellent stability and precise control, via its slow motion cables, on both the horizontal (azimuth) and vertical (altitude) axes. At under 9kg complete this instrument is easy to transport and benefits from a short optical tube which is easier to store.
