The 5" Skymatic MAK Deep-Sky and Planetary Astrophotography Bundle includes a high-quality 5 inch Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope with computerized GoTo azimuth mount and a ToupTek GCMOS long-exposure eyepiece camera.

The telescope is a Levenhuk Skymatic 127 GT MAK, Maksutov-Cassegrain on an azimuth AZ 114 GT SynScan computer-guided mount. With the GoTo function, the telescope is capable of locating and tracking, with incredible accuracy, over 42,000 astronomical objects stored in the microprocessor memory. The telescope is a powerful, yet compact, Maksutov-Cassegrain design that yields detailed, high-quality views of the lunar surface, planetary disks, binary stars, star clusters, galaxies and nebulae.

Levenhuk SkyMatic 127 GT MAK is a powerful, yet compact, Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope that yields detailed, high-quality views of the lunar surface, planetary disks, binary stars and compact nebulae. With a relatively large aperture and standard 2" eyepieces of this telescope, you will be able to observe nebulae and star clusters, while the GoTo mount with computerized drive systems will allow you to capture breathtaking images of Solar System planets and the Moon with ease. This practical instrument is a perfect choice for amateur stargazers, as it navigates to any celestial object automatically, yet it still is a powerful telescope that allows experienced stargazers to try their hand at astrophotography.

The azimuth GoTo mount with a SynScan AZ hand controller is extremely easy to use. Navigating to the most interesting celestial objects does not require any experience or knowledge, as the telescope will do everything by itself. The database of SynScan AZ includes over 42,000 objects, so you will never run out of things to observe. To make things even easier, the mount may be connected to a PC and controlled by any planetarium software (the cable is included in the kit).

Focusing the view is achieved by adjusting the primary mirror with a precise focus knob.

Levenhuk SkyMatic series includes reflectors and Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes with GoTo. The computerized drive systems on both axes of the mount and intuitive controls of SynScan AZ significantly reduce the time it takes to find the hidden jewels of the celestial sphere, allowing you to observe the most interesting objects without having to spend precious time on checking astronomical charts. Levenhuk SkyMatic telescopes with GoTo mounts are smart telescopes that find stars themselves.
