The Saxon Maksutov-Cassegrains are the ultimate take-anywhere telescopes. They are also ideal if working space is limited. 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. This Saxon Maksutov comes in apertures of 90mm, and is available either complete with equatorial mounts and tripods, or as tube assemblies only, which can be mounted onto a standard photographic tripod. Whether your requirement is for terrestrial or astronomical use, these compact scopes are the perfect companion. Tube material: Aluminium. The unique Maksutov-Cassegrain incorporates an optical design that gives an astonishing 1200mm focal length in a compact tube of only 350mm. This makes it a handy, portable and easy-to-use alternative to conventional long, heavy refractors and even most Newtonians. The 1200x90 comes with a flip mirror system to allow for land or star-gazing, 1.25" Plossl eyepieces, aluminium tripod and an equatorial mount.
