The Explore Scientific FirstLight 152mm f/12.5 Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope
is ideal for users who want a portable yet powerful observation
platform that is able to achieve high magnifications with the ability to
make detailed observations of both near and deep-sky subjects. The
Maksutov-Cassegrain optical configuration is engineered with a convex
meniscus lens which not only eliminates the need for periodic
collimation, but the nature of the lens requires a smaller secondary
mirror that limits obstruction and increases contrast. The Maksutov
optical path results in a slower focal ratio and narrower field of view
versus a similar-sized Schmidt design, but the optical benefits make
this an ideal scope for planetary and double-star observation.
