Sky-Watcher BK MAK127SP OTA
Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope. Objective lens diameter: 127mm. Focal length: 1500mm
The Sky-Watcher BK MAK127SP is a really compact sized model which shows great details on planets. The short tube makes easy to transport. This telescope has 127mm aperture, which is more powerful than the 90mm or 102mm models. The central obstruction is 30% only, resulting in contrasty image even at high magnifications. Compared to similar aperture telescopes this Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope is much shorter and weighs less meaning that it is easier to transport, however the central obstruction makes the image a bit less contrasty. The recommended magnification range is 37.5–260x and provides sharp images on Moon and planets.
Dovetail plate is included but there's a standard photo thread at the bottom of the scope as well. The two eyepieces provided deliver 60x and 150x magnification. A StarPointer finderscope is included. The focuser has a T-thread making it possible to mount cameras as well.
