Sky-Watcher 127/1500 AZ5 Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope
The Sky-Watcher 127/1500 Maksutov Cassegrain is a compact and powerful optical design that combines a front meniscus lens and two mirrors. As the optical tube is closed by the meniscus, the mirrors are protected from atmospheric agents such as humidity, dust and pollution that over the years degrade the reflective coating of the mirrors. The tube is compact but the focal length is long allowing high magnification with the standard eyepieces. The resolution power gives the ability to distinguish the main planets details such as the rings of Saturn, the band and the moons of Jupiter.
- Compact dimensions, ideal for transportation
- Practical main mirror focusing mechanism
- Universal accessory adaptation
- High contrast image without distracting false colour
- Quick release system for the tube
- Impressive viewing capabilities for its price range
- 5 years Sky-Watcher limited warranty
