SkyWatcher Skymax-127 Maksutov-Cassegrain on EQ3 mount (with 25mm and 10mm Super eyepieces, Red Dot finder, star diagonal)

More about the product

The SkyWatcher SkyMax 127 MC  is a really compact sized model which shows great details on planets. The short tube makes easy to transport. This telescope has 127 mm aperture, which is more powerful than the 90 mm or 102 mm models. The central obstruction is 30% only, resulting in contrasty image even at high magnifications. Compared to similar aperture telescopes (eg. Explorer 130 models) this Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope is much shorter and weights less meaning that it is easier to transport, however the central obstruction makes the image a bit less contrasty. The recommended magnification range is 37.5x-260x and provides sharp images on Moon and planets. Dovetail plate is included but there's a standard photo thread at the bottom of the scope as well. The two eyepieces provided deliver 60x and 150x magnification. A Starpointer or an achromatic 6x30 spring load finderscope is included (depending on the model). The focuser has a T-thread making it possible to mount cameras as well. The EQ3 mount can be equipped with clock drive and GoTo kit as well.

The telescope can be purchased with AZ GoTo mount as well.


For the GoTo version we highly recommend the Skywatcher Wi-Fi unit (SynScanWifi), with which you can control your telescope via smartphone or tablet. Just plug the Wi-Fi unit into the hand controller slot and download the free App (Android or iOS) - it is ready to use.

Pros

Kicsi a mérete a súlya, valóban elfér egy táskában. Nem probléma a jusztírozás. Egyenes állású betekintés. Az EQ 3 mechanika tökéeletesn megfelel alá

Cons

Kicsi a látószöge, kifejezetten csak bolygózásra alkalmas. Nem tetszik az élességállító, sokszor, ha elkandikálok a megfelelő beállítás mellett, hosszú időbe telik, míg újra be tudom állítani.

Summary

Véleményem szerint ez a felszerelés tökéletes kezdő műszer lehet, akár még gyerekeknek is, mert egyszerű a használata, nem nagy a mérete, minőségileg megfelelő és szép képet ad, hozza, ami kell a bolygókon. Mellette tisztában kell lenni a hátrányaival is, a fókuszreduktor csökkenti a nagyítást, de a látómezőnk nem lesz jobb, a fénygyűjtő képessége nem lesz több. Úgy gondolom kezdőnek egy GOTO mechanikával nagyon jó választás lehet.
