A Maksutov telescope is compact and chromatic aberration-free -perfect for the Moon and planets!
This instrument offers a complete system for optimally getting started in astronomy. The well proven Maksutov-Cassegrain mirror-lens system produces a sharp, high-contrast image.
Used in combination with an Amici prism (see accessories) it provides an upright and non-reversed image, which is perfect for use in nature watching, target shooting or digiscoping. An appropriate DSLR adapter is also available from us. The telescope can be mounted on a standard camera tripod by means of a 1/4" camera tripod adapter.
An ideal telescope for getting started in astronomy economically!
The EQ-3 mount is so designed that one can easily compensate for the rotation of the Earth while observing.
It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.
