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

- stable mount
