This Sky-Watcher 180 mm Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope is a portable scope for its aperture, and will impress you with its performance. You could take it along on your next trip to a star party or even on a vacation. Although this telescope is compact in size compared to a Newtonian or refractor, it has the kind of optical quality you's expect from a fine Maksutov-Cassegrain OTA. Because it uses the diffraction-limited Maksutov optical system, it produces high resolution sharp images with high contrast. The optical elements are fully multi-coated to further enhance the image contrast. The aperture of this scope is 180 mm or just over 7" for extra light gathering capacity, meaning you will get brighter and sharper images.

With this 180 mm Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope by Sky-Watcher focusing is accomplished by turning a knob on the rear housing of the scope, which moves the primary mirror slightly to adjust focus. Focusing is smooth and precise. Your star diagonal and eyepiece never move. Speaking of the star diagonal, this telescope includes a 2" 90° star diagonal to accept both 2" and 1.25" eyepieces.

The Sky-Watcher 150 mm Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope comes with a 2" 28 mm LET eyepiece. The included 8x50 finder scope makes it easy to find those celestial objects. This 180 mm (7.09") aperture Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope by Sky-Watcher provides a serious aperture for impressive bright images of celestial objects in and out of the solar system, and the long 2700mm focal length will provide refractor-like contrast. With over 7" of aperture and a proven diffraction-limited Maksutov Cassegrain optical system, you will be amazed at the new celestial observations you will accomplish in no time. Begin experiencing the thrill of astronomical discovery now.
