The MC Orion 180/2700 telescope:
Are you looking for something that will satisfy your appetite for performance? Then try a 'Big Mak'! This 180mm OTA guarantees super-sharp, high-contrast images, with a wealth of detail. With almost 45% more light gathering capacity than the smaller 150mm Maksutov, you get better resolution and brighter images. No other optical system delivers this performance; and at 560mm in length and barely 7.3 kg in weight, it is both compact and portable. With this reflector, there is nothing standing in the way of a great night's observing, except perhaps for a few clouds!
The advantages in a nutshell:
- compact, high performance OTA
- high-contrast image
- suitable for astrophotography
The Orion SkyView Pro mount:
This robust mount for serious amateur astronomers can support OTAs of up to 9kg. It sets a new standard in precision and is also excellent value for money. With a total weight (including counterweights) of 15 kg, the mount remains portable but at the same time it is also very sturdy.
Included with the mount:
- stable mount
- steel tripod
- suitable counterweights
When buying this version of the SkyView Pro mount, you will receive a robust GoTo mount with up to 42,900 objects available at the press of a button. Its easy operation avoids long tedious searches and guarantees a great night's observing.
Maksutov telescopes have their own thread, which is different to the SC thread. This means that an additional Adapter is required. Using this, then makes the extensive range of accessories for Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes available for use.
