The Sky-Watcher SKYMAX 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. The SKYMAX-127 127mm (5") f/11.8 Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope is mounted on the EQ3-2 equitorial mount. Our SKYMAX 127 is manufactured by Sky-Watcher, one of the most respected telescope manufacturers - products you can trust, representing great value for money.
|"Optically, all the lenses are multicoated and the internal baffles had no shiny surfaces that could cause reflections of bright objects ... The Focuser was quite smooth with very little image shift ... The field was sharp across 80 percent of the view ... We were pleased with the quality of the view even when pushing the telescope to higher magnifications ... Mars and Saturn bore high magnifications well ... The rings of Saturn appeared sharply defined ... Turning to the Moon, it was a revelation through the Skymax ... This telescope certainly does a good job on the more detailed Solar System objects ... In the deep sky, the Skymax performed well on everything to galaxies to nebulae " BBC Sky At Night Magazine |

Sky Watcher is an American company and a leading manufacturer of high-quality telescopes and other optical products. We are able to supply not just the telescopes in the UK, but all Sky Watcher accesories and spare parts.SKY-WATCHER DELUXE MIRROR COATINGS:
Most reflectors today usually have a coat of aluminium as the mirror surface and then an overcoat of silicon monoxide or silicon dioxide to protect it. Silicon dioxide produces a much more durable coat than silicon monoxide but requires specialized equipment to apply it and is therefore more expensive. Protection is needed, because in most reflectors, the mirror is open to the elements and deterioration of the reflective layer reduces the resolution of the telescope. ALL Sky-Watcher reflectors are Multi-Coated with Silicon Dioxide as standard for Optimum Durability and Long Term Performance.
| I have used a great number of telescopes; some are good, some mediocre and some bad. To me the Sky-Watcher range of instruments are very good indeed, and suited to amateurs of all kinds and they are not priced out of the market! Excellent value. Use them and enjoy them.
