SKYMAX-150 Pro 150mm (6") f/12 computerised goto MAKSUTOV-CASSEGRAIN Telescope + EQ5 PRO SynScan™ GOTO Mount - Automatically points to objects in the sky

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 contrast and image sharpness. This compact telescope, with its high-resolution multi-coated optical system, excels at medium-to-high-powers for the examination of the surface detail on the Moon, planets and also for double-star observations. Also useful for terrestrial use. The telescope comes with a strong computerised stand, that automatically points the telescope to over 42,900 objects in the night sky. Our SKYMAX 150 Pro benefits from the inclusion of Schott glass in its construction. Schott is the recognised world leader in glass utilised for precision optical lens systems, including medical instrumentation and famous brand camera lenses.

Sky Watcher is an American company and a leading manufacturer of high-quality telescopes and other optical products. We are able to supply not just the telescopes in the UK, but all Sky Watcher accesories and spare parts.

SKY-WATCHER DELUXE MIRROR COATINGS: Most reflectors today usually have a coat of aluminium as the mirror surface and then an overcoat of silicon monoxide or silicon dioxide to protect it. Silicon dioxide produces a much more durable coat than silicon monoxide but requires specialized equipment to apply it and is therefore more expensive. Protection is needed, because in most reflectors, the mirror is open to the elements and deterioration of the reflective layer reduces the resolution of the telescope. ALL Sky-Watcher reflectors are Multi-Coated with Silicon Dioxide as standard for Optimum Durability and Long Term Performance.

I have used a great number of telescopes; some are good, some mediocre and some bad. To me the Sky-Watcher range of instruments are very good indeed, and suited to amateurs of all kinds and they are not priced out of the market! Excellent value. Use them and enjoy them. Sir Patrick Moore CBE FR
