A compact but powerful, high-contrast, high-resolution Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope. High-transmission multi-coatings are employed on all optical surfaces for optimum performance. This is the deluxe version which accepts 2” eyepieces and accessories. With a 2″ eyepiece, the field of view or FOV is increased drastically, allowing the user to detect more stars.
IF you already own a mid-range or better tripod, you may purchase the Benro 3-Way Geared Head (GD3WH) to connect this scope to the tripod.
NOTE: You may purchase optional 1.25″ eyepiece for wider range of magnification. We recommend the Celestron 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece for ease of use.
