This Sky-Watcher 150 mm Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope is a portable scope with impressive performance. You could take it along on your next trip to a star party or even on a vacation. Although this telescope is compact in size, it has the optical quality you expect from a fine Maksutov-Cassegrain OTA. Because it uses the diffraction-limited Maksutov optical system, it produces high resolution sharp images with high contrast. The optical elements are fully multi-coated to further enhance the image contrast. The aperture of this scope is 150 mm or 5.9" for extra light gathering capacity, meaning you will get brighter and sharper images.
With this 150 mm Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope by Sky-Watcher focusing is accomplished by turning a knob on the rear housing of the scope, which moves the primary mirror slightly to adjust focus.
