The Sky-Watcher SKYMAX Maksutov-Cassegrains are the ultimate take-anywhere telescopes. They are also ideal if working space is limited. Despite their small dimensions they pack a powerful punch. Their High-Resolution, diffraction limited optical systems are multi-coated to maximize contrast and image sharpness. The Skymax Maksutovs come in apertures of 80mm, 90mm, 102mm and 127mm, and are available either complete with equatorial mounts and tripods, or as tube assemblies only, which can be mounted onto a standard photographic tripod. Whether your requirement is for terrestrial or astronomical use, these compact scopes are the perfect companion.
"Optically, all the lenses are multicoated and the internal baffles had no shiny surfaces that could cause reflections of bright objects
The Focuser was quite smooth with very little image shift
The field was sharp across 80 percent of the view
We were pleased with the quality of the view even when pushing the telescope to higher magnifications
Mars and Saturn bore high magnifications well" The rings of Saturn appeared sharply defined
Turning to the Moon, it was a revelation through the Skymax
This telescope certainly does a good job on the more detailed Solar System objects "In the deep sky, the Skymax performed well on everything to galaxies to nebulae".Sky At Night MagazineThe telescope is optically very good, giving clear, sharp images.Endorsed and recommended by Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRSMagnifications (with eyepieces supplied): x60 & x150 Highest Practical Power (Potential): x254 Diameter of Primary Mirror: 127mm Telescope Focal Length: 1500mm (f/11.81) Eyepieces Supplied (1.25"): 10mm & 25mm Red Dot Finder 1.25"/31.7mm Star Diagonal EQ3-2 Deluxe Equatorial Mount Focusing by Moving Primary Mirror Built-in Polar Alignment Scope Holder Aluminium Tripod with Accessory Tray 55% more Light gathering than 102mm
