Maksutov Cassegrains

<strong>SKYWATCHER MAKSUTOV TELESCOPES</strong>
SKYWATCHER MAKSUTOV TELESCOPES
Skywatcher Maksutov telescopes are a versatile and compact telescope by virtue of the folded optics.
The long focal lengths will yield sharp images at higher magnifications for planets and lunar work.
Use a low mag for great deep space images especially from that dark location.

SKYMAX-102 (AZ-GTI) 102MM (4") F/12.7 WIFI GO-TO MAKSUTOV-CASSEGRAIN TELESCOPE SKYMAX-102 (AZ-GTI) 102MM (4") F/12.7 WIFI GO-TO MAKSUTOV-CASSEGRAIN TELESCOPE
The lightweight and highly portable Sky-Watcher SKYMAX-102 (AZ-GTi), has been designed to be controlled wirelessly with your Smartphone or Tablet, using the free SynScan App for iOS or Android. The AZ-GTi mounting, with it's built-in WiFi module, creates it’s very own Wi-Fi network, so the mount can be used anywhere, without any reliance on other WiFi or mobile networks. After entering your coordinates into the App and following a simple alignment procedure, you are ready to explore the universe using the App’s intuitive touchscreen menu.

The AZ-GTi and SynScan App provides full computerised GO-TO control, allowing the telescope to be automatically slewed to any one of the objects in the App’s extensive database of 10,000+ celestial objects. Incorporates Sky-Watcher’s Freedom-Find™ patented Dual-Encoder Technology, which allows the telescope to be moved manually in either axis without the mount losing its positional information. This gives the user enormous freedom, convenience and flexibility during observational sessions.

The compact but powerful SKYMAX-102 telescope is ideal for the observation of double-stars, and the surface detail of the Moon & bright planets. Its high-resolution, long focal length optical system is multi-coated to maximise contrast and image sharpness.

AN ASTROPHOTOGRAPHERS DREAM TELESCOPE!!

The exciting new Maksutov-Newtonian from Sky-Watcher is just what astrophotographers and serious visual observers have been looking for. The Maksutov-Newtonian design combines the best features from the Newtonian Reflector and the Maksutov-Cassegrain to create a telescope design that provides truly stunning image quality, providing high-contrast, perfectly flat images, free from false colour. The Maksutov-Newtonian design provides large aperture Apochromatic performance, with exceptional field correction, in a compact, amazingly affordable package. Stars appear as classic pinpoints across the entire field. Perfectly optimised for modern DSLR cameras. The premium optics are housed in a robust rolled-steel tube for excellent mechanical integrity. Five internal knife-edge baffles are included to eliminate internal reflections and further enhance contrast. The Primary Mirror is made of low thermal expansion Pyrex® glass for a significantly reduced cool-down time.
