SkyWatcher 102/1300 Maksutov telescope on StarQuest mount
This is a compact telescope with long focus, so it is ideal for planet and Moon observing (and imaging - by optional cameras), but you can see the brighter deepsky objects as well. Due its shortness it is a good travelscope option.

More about the product
This telescope is a 102mm aperture compact telescope showing more details than the 90mm model. The central obstruction is 30% only resulting in contrasty image even at high magnification. Compared to Mira 102 model the aperture is similar but 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 32-200x and shows excellent details on Moon or planets,
and can be used to observe brighter deepsky objects as well. The scope
has a standard photo thread and can be mounted on any tripod with an
Amici-prism. Two Barium eyepieces are included (52x and 130x). A red dot finder is also included. The focuser has a T-thread so mounting cameras is also possible.
It is functionally very similar to the Avant mount, but instead of the polar wedge we can adjust the pole height using the two screw solutions. Like the Avant, the axes are lightweight, but they have a strong design, and can be fixed by the discs on the bottom. Both axles have fine-tuning (with the usual flexible arms). The instrument can now be fixed to the mount with a more practical plate. The counterweight sits on a threaded end counterweight shaft. The length and weight is less than the EQ2 mount. The reason for this is that, due to the more compact mechanical head, the center of gravity of the telescope is closer, so a shorter axis and less weight are required.
The head is located on the thinner aluminum tripod, which still provides sufficient stability even on the 130/650 instrument. The head can be fixed to the stand with the usual hand-held screw. The head has a black finish with green sticker scale. The capacity of the mount is approx. 4 kg.
Direction of Dec and RA axes can be rotated at 360 degrees. The RA and Dec gear tooth numbers are 122.
