Take a closer look at the universe
A catadioptric telescope combines all the best characteristics of a reflector and refractor telescope. Because this requires some technique, this type of technology is often more expensive. Fortunately, this Meade telescope is equipped with all kinds of technical tricks, making it also suitable for the beginning astronomer. The lens diameter is 125 millimetres and the focal length is 1900 millimetres. Because the focal length is so large, this results in a high maximum magnification of 250x. The telescope comes with an sturdy aluminium tripod that is adjustable in height.
Getting started immediately
The telescope is suitable for every beginner, except for children. The Meade StarNavigator Maksutov 125 millimetres is equipped with an azimuth mount and a GoTo system. This system makes it possible to align the telescope quickly and easily use it on location. Because of the included GoTo--system, you can also easily find 30,000 objects in the universe and the system gives you corresponding information about the object. By using the built-in tracking motor you do not have to follow the object yourself and the object you would like to follow will not leave the image.
