Product description:

Maksutov telescopes

Maksutov telescopes are very compact and therefore ideally suited for portable use or for when travelling. The enclosed optics and collimation stability with Maksutovs ensure their robustness.

Maksutov telescopes have a very long focal length despite their compact design. But the field of view is rather narrow when compared to achromatic refractor telescopes. However, this combination makes Maksutov telescopes ideal instruments for observing the Moon and planets. And when equipped with an Amici prism, they are also very well suited to nature-watching and nature photography.

New - with immediate effect, this telescope comes with the new improved Hexafoc focuser. This focuser has a free aperture of 65mm! For photographic use in particular, it can be retrofitted with a 1:10 reduction ratio fine focuser (see 'Recommended Accessories'). This allows more precise focus adjustment.

The mounting Bresser EXOS-2:

The EXOS-2 is a robust mounting with high bearing capacity (up to 13 kg visual, 10 kg photographic) and precise setpoint tracing for visual watchings and for astro-photography.
Double radical rill-bearings make the function precise and the optimated RA-axes don´t let much play. Further, the very robust, precise worked mounting allows an easy entrance in astro-photography. A motorical 2-axes control can be added.
