    Product Description
    SkyWatcher 127/1500 AZ5 Mak-Cassegrain Telescope The Sky-Watcher 127/1500 Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope is a compact and yet powerful optical design that combines a front meniscus lens and two mirrors. The optical tube is closed by the meniscus, the mirrors are protected from atmospheric agents like humidity, dust and pollution that degrade the reflective coating of the mirrors over the years. The tube is compact but the focal length is long, allowing high magnification with the standard eyepieces. The resolution power gives the you the ability to distinguish the planet's details such as the rings of Saturn, the bands and the moons of Jupiter. Superb Imaging power The 127mm aperture provides enough light gathering power to view the popular celestial bodies and messier catalog objects. It is designed to produce high contrast images with minimal chromatic aberrations. This imaging power comes at a price that is well within the range of most enthusiasts. Portable and Easy to Set-up The compact dimensions of this optical tube assembly makes it easy to carry around. Bring it along with you to your favorite viewing destinations. It’s designed for easy assembly and dis-assembly with its quick release system. It also allows you to easily perform minor tube adjustments to suit your environment. Durable Construction The lightweight aluminium tube is specially designed to support the internal optical components and keep images sharply in focus while in use.
