About The Skywatcher Skymax 150 PRO
The Maksutov Signature Series is the new generation of professional quality Maksutovs from Skywatcher. These scopes are manufactured to the highest levels of optical and mechanical precision, resulting in incredible optical performance and finish.
Even the most discriminating observer is going to be thrilled and amazed at the performance of the Skywatcher Signature Series Maksutov telescopes. In a good many applications the sharpness and image quality of these telescopes matches and exceeds that of the classic Schmidt-Cassegrain design.
Large aperture Maksutov Cassegrains are well-known for their high contrast optics and ability to resolve fine planetary detail as well as split double stars down to the theoretical limit of the aperture.
The Skywatcher pro versions are certainly no exception, and boast features typically only seen on instruments costing considerably more.
The optics are all fully multi coated, and the glass is sourced from the world leader in precision optical glass, Schott. The focusers are precision engineered and super smooth and the tubes themselves are all aluminium.
