The Sky-Watcher 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.
This Sky-Watcher Maksutov comes in apertures of 127mm and is available either complete with equatorial mounts and tripods, or as tube assemblies only, which can be mounted on a standard photographic tripod. Whether your requirement is for terrestrial or astronomical use, these compact scopes are the perfect companion.
The Sky-Watcher AZ SynScan Mount is a precision engineered instrument that will allow you to easily find and enjoy viewing night sky treasures, such as Planets, Nebulae, Star Clusters, Galaxies and much more. The AZ SynScan hand controller allows you point your telescope at a specific object, or even tour the night sky at the touch of a button! The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,900+ objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions.
