    Orion SkyView Pro 180mm EQ Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope

    Looking for something to satisfy your appetite for power? Try the big Orion SkyView Pro 180mm EQ Mak! For the most demanding enthusiast, the new Orion 180mm Mak sets the standard for high-power performance and compact design. With 7" of aperture and that long focal length Mak aficionados love, you'll get tack-sharp views and clearly defined photos with subtle detail and high contrast.

    The reason for the outstanding high-power performance of the Orion SkyView Pro 180 EQ Mak is the 180mm (7.1") optical system with its 2,700mm focal length (f/15). With 44% more light grasp than the 150mm Mak, you'll get brighter images and better resolution. And the Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design produces larger images with less eyepiece magnification than other scopes. The Orion 180 Mak is the perfect combination of brightness, contrast, and definition for planets, close double-stars, clusters, and well-defined deep-sky targets.

    The visual back on the Orion SkyView Pro 180 EQ Mak accepts 1.25" eyepieces and accessories, and a dovetail bracket on the rear cell accepts any Orion finder scope or EZ Finder. The dovetail rail on the underside of the tube makes it easy to remove the telescope or attach it to the mount for easier setup. Attach an Orion StarShoot Solar System Imaging Camera and you'll capture gorgeous high-resolution color images on your PC!

    Power, versatility, portability ƒ??????????? if you're a serious big Mak fan then the Orion SkyView Pro 180mm EQ Mak Cass is the one for you! One-year limited warranty.
