The Sky-Watcher Maksutov-Cassegrains are the ultimate take-anywhere telescopes. 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.

Sky-Watcher's premiere line of Skymax Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes create a perfect blend of aperture and lightweight portability.

Planetary Detail Like You've Never Seen Before
Skymax Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes serve as an alternative to Schmidt Cassegrains and Newtonians, and offer astronomers a large visual aperture, high contrast and long focal length in a compact package. Maksutov's deliver better planetary detail than other telescopes due to a focal length that's 5-7 times longer, increasing overall magnification. Maksutov-Cassegrains also utilize a meniscus shaped corrector plate, eliminating any spherical aberration caused by the primary mirror.

World-Class Optics
The Skymax Maksutov series telescopes deliver refractor-like views and superior contrast while allowing for larger apertures at a fraction of the cost. Using lens elements and reflective mirrors, you'll benefit from Sky-Watcher's dedication to quality optics. Our Maksutov series features a borosilicate primary and secondary mirror with a quartz overcoat, producing 94% reflectivity. The corrector plate utilizes our signature Metallic High -Transmission Coatings (MHTC), giving visual astronomers professional grade optics to create a unique viewing experience.

Perfect for the Beginning Astrophotographer
In addition to the visual benefits of Sky-Watcher Skymax Maksutovs, these serve as excellent optical tubes for imaging planetary, lunar or solar, with use of a solar filter. For astronomers looking to start in astrophotography, the Sky-Watcher Maksutovs deliver exceptionally long focal lengths, necessary for imaging planetary detail. This provides an increased image scale, forgoing the need of a barlow lens or other accessories that might increase exposure times.
