Sky-Watcher 127mm/1500mm Skymax 127 Maksutov-Cassegrain OTA

The Sky-Watcher 127/1500 Skymax 127 Maksutov-Cassegrain OTA is a compact and powerful optical design that combines a front meniscus lens and two mirrors. As the optical tube is closed by the meniscus, the mirrors are protected from atmospheric agents such as humidity, dust and pollution that over the years degrade the reflective coating of the mirrors. The tube is compact but the focal length is  long allowing high magnification with the standard eyepieces.  The resolution power gives the ability to distinguish the main planets details such as the rings of Saturn, the band and the moons of Jupiter.

Features:

  • Compact dimensions, ideal for transportation
  • Practical main mirror focusing mechanism
  • Universal accessory adaptation
  • High contrast image without distracting false colour
  • Quick release system for the tube
  • Impressive viewing capabilities for its price range
  • 5 years Sky-Watcher limited warranty

Superb Imaging power
The 127mm aperture provides enough light gathering power to view the most popular celestial bodies and messier catalogue 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 Setup
The compact dimensions of this optical tube assembly makes it easy to carry around. It’s designed for easy assembly and disassembly with its quick release system. It also allows you to easily perform minor tube adjustments to suit your current environment. Bring it along with you to your favourite viewing locations.

Durable Construction
The lightweight aluminium tube is expertly designed to support the internal optical components and keep images sharply in focus while in use.
