    Description

    SkyWatcher 90/1250 EQ Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope

    The SkyWatcher 90EQ1 Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope is the ultimate take-anywhere telescope, extremely ideal if working space is limited. Despite its small dimensions, the telescope packs a powerful punch. The MAK90EQ1 is specifically manufactured to maximize contrast and image sharpness.

    With a 90mm aperture and 1250mm focal length, this scope makes a strong case for quality optic performance while its portable size allows for easy to transport to your favourite viewing locations.

    Convenience is well accounted for with the standard aluminium tripod with accessory tray for storing eyepieces and other tools. Your viewing experience is also greatly enhanced with the Equitorial mount that makes star tracking easy. This equitorial mount is built with a larger mount head for greater stability and tracking percision.

    The heavier EQ mount rests firmly on an adjustable height aluminium tripod with large wall to wall accessory tray and central stabilizer.

    SkyWatcher MAK90EQ1 Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope Features:
  • Large 90mm Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope design
  • Clear optics at both high and low magnifications
  • Lightweight aluminium tripod for mobility
  • Convenient accessory tray for storing eyepieces, filters etc
  • Large mount head offers greater stability and control
  • 5 Years Skywatcher Limited Warranty

    Very well packaged and came with easy to follow setup instructions.
    I was able to view the moon's craters, Saturn's rings plus Jupiter's bands & moons on my first night - even in a large town with a lot of light pollution.
    Great for beginners and terrific value.

    First telescope for me too. Amazed at the optic quality. It's the perfect scope for easy carrying in and out without whacking something. Primary purpose was for moon observations. It has exceeded all my expectations. I like it and I'm not easily pleased.

    FAQ

    Q:
    I am interested in your advertised Skywatcher MAK90EQ1 Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope. However, just few questions regarding this product: 1. Does the package come with a motor drive? 2. What other accessories are required to mount a Canon EOS 40D onto the telescope?
    A:
    The MAK90EQ1 does not actually come with a motordrive. To connect a canon camera you need two parts: A T-adapter for your telescope A T-Ring for your camera
