Omegon Maksutov - excellent contrast for observing the Moon and planets
This Maksutov telescope is an 'expert telescope' for lunar and planetary observing. This telescope design boasts excellent contrast with a sharp image. This telescope can show you masses of detail in lunar craters or in the cloud bands and features of the planets.
The advantages in a nutshell
- Maksutov telescope - compact and lightweight design
- suitable for astronomy or nature-watching
- optimal for smaller mounts
- suitable for taking on trips
- GP prism rail for super-fast mounting
Always a perfect image
The Maksutov system could not be more brilliant -a compact telescope, but with an extremely long focal length. It is easy to get an excellent image at high magnification, even using cheap and simple eyepieces - an advantage sadly lacking with many short focal length telescopes.
The success of Dimitri Maksutov
When the optical engineer Dmitri Maksutov invented the Maksutov telescope in 1942, he could not have imagined that it would become such a success story. The success of this ingenious design still continues even more than 70 years after its invention. Good designs withstand the test of time. See for yourself just how good this Maksutov telescope is.

Fond of travelling? - there is always space in your luggage for it
