More about the product

This SkyWatcher Skymax 102MC 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). An achromatic 6x30 spring load finderscope is also included. The focuser has a T-thread so mounting cameras is also possible.

EQ2 version: The EQ2 mount can be equipped with clock drive as well.

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

Pros

Fotózáshoz használom a természetjárásaim során.A madártani egyesületnek segítek néha és olyankor mikor kölcsönadják a gépüket ezzel örökítem meg őket.Nagyon szép leképezése van.És már csillagászatra is használom látva,hogy mik is vannak odafent az égbolton. Nagy nagyítást tudunk vele elérni és mégis szép marad a kép.De mégis a hordozhatósága az ami megfogott benne.Nem gondoltam volna,hogy egy ilyen komoly távcső össz vissz ekkora méretekkel rendelkezhet. Az égen amit sikerült eddig felfedeznem vele,Hold,Jupiter az Orion köd.Bár én sokkal nagyobb látványra számítottam az Orion ködnél,de barátom azt mondta,hogy ne is várjak színes képeket mint az űrtávcsöveknél.De így is szépen fodrozódott a látómezőben. Nagyon tetszettek a felhők a Jupiteren sokkal többet megmutat mint a 70/500-as.

Cons

Hátránya az ára ami azért az előző távcsövemhez (70/500as lencsés túratávcső)mérve már nagyon sok. De azt kell,hogy mondjam megérte megvenni.

Summary

Minden felhasználási területen jól teljesít,legyen szó természetjárásról fotózásról vagy csillagászatról. Érdekes,hogy még fotózni az eget nem próbáltam vele,de egyszer erre is sort kerítek.

Pros

Kompakt méret.

Cons

Kissé lágy kép.

Summary

Kompakt méretének és 3kg.-os súlyának köszönhetően igazi utazótávcső. Egy komolyabb fotóállvány is simán elbírja. Kitakarása már csak 30%-os és fénygyűjtő képessége is nagyobb mint a 90-es MC.-nek. Egyenes állású képe van ezért Amici prizmával természetfigyelésre is alkalmas. Az 1300-as fókuszának köszönhetően könnyedén elérhetőek a nagyobb nagyítások, viszont kis nagyítás, és ekkor a nagy látómező sajnos nem az erőssége. Vezető távcsőnek ideális választás lehet.
