The Sky-Watcher SKYMAX 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 image sharpness and contrast . The Skymax Maksutovs come in apertures of 90mm, 102mm and 127mm, and are available either complete with tripods and equatorial mounts, or as tube assemblies only, which can be mounted onto a standard photographic tripod. Whether your requirement is for terrestrial or astronomical use, these compact scopes are the perfect companion.

Ade Ashford Says..."Since its conception in the 1940s, the name Maksutov has become synonymous with compact, high-precision optical instruments. Sky-Watcher's range of SKYMAX Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes remain true to this hallowed tradition. Available in a range of apertures and focal lengths to suit just about any land- or sky-based observation where contrast and clarity of image are paramount. Capable of high-power viewing, their lunar and planetary performance is extremely good."
