This is the third telescope I have bought from FLO , the service is brilliant and they will be my go to Company to buy my kit. The scope itself is well built the red dot took some setting up but once done I pointed the scope at Jupiter tonight and was impressed by the images, I need to invest in some better eye pieces and better diagonal and will be doing that next month , thanks FLO

Good performer and not too pricey
16 January 2024  | 

I'd not used a Maksutov before, but wanting a reasonably light telescope for high magnification, I decided from the reviews that this would be a good choice. In fact, this review is of a replacement, as the first one had problems with the optics, which seemed to be collimation. I contacted FLO for some detailed advice for collimating this model, but they offered to take it back and do the job themselves. The defects turned out to be more than just collimation, but it's reassuring to know that if you do get a defective example, FLO will rectify the problem without the customer being out of pocket. The second sample gives a very good performance, even near maximum usable magnifications. The only aspect I don't like is the provision for a finder, which isn't the usual dovetail, but a piece of grooved plastic which only accepts a RDF; the supplied RDF has too much parallax too be much use, but the screw holes are correctly spaced for a normal dovetail, so I supplied my own. This still isn't fully satisfactory, as the screw holes are in the plastic shroud at the back of the telescope, and it isn't as stable as might be wished (it would be interesting if anyone has any ideas on how this could be improved). Nevertheless, the optical performance is well up to standard, and any chromatic aberration from the single element corrector plate is undetectable in practice even at magnifications well above any practical limit.

Over the Moon

Glad I finally decided to purchase the Bresser 127 mak to be able to have a go at Lunar and Solar imaging. Haven't had so much fun in ages. Delivery was within 24 hours and well packaged.
Definitely exceeded my expectations and easily worth the price. Now I have the William optics zenithstar 73 iii for wide views and the Bresser 127 mak for close up. Works really well for terrestrial viewing, enjoying watching the ships passing Southend Pier.
You could say "I'm over the moon"

Bresser 127 Mak

I have to commend the team at FLO, as a customer who asks lots of questions before making a decision the team have always been very approachable and helpful. Itís a big decision to get it right and make sure you make the right choices in this hobby and as someone who has bought scopes in the past and regretted my choices this time around I was determined to get it right!
Firstly a huge thank you to the team at FLO especially Steve who I know I have driven round the twist, I do appreciate your time and thank you all for helping me. I highly recommend FLO and will use them again.

Secondly I must also say I was Very impressed with the delivery turn around from FLO , I placed my order at lunch time Friday and it arrived 10 the next morning which is impressive.

As for the scope I havenít yet tried it out as I am looking for the right mount to purchase before I do but I will no doubt enjoy this one, I wanted a scope for moon, planets and doubles stars and the Bresser was my choice over the SW Skymax as its a full 127 and not a 120 like the skywatcher. It has a bigger primary mirror and seems better built and just all round better quality. Itís solid but not too heavy and its build quality is obvious from first impressions. My goal is to build a visual then imaging rig to my spec and this is the first step in that direction. Looking forward to many an evening with this one.

Thank again FLO and clear skies 👍🏼🔭

A great scope
07 April 2022  | 

I have received a Bresser 127mm mak cas scope from FLO, it came within 24hrs of ordering, 'Beat that',
The scope is excellent, pin sharp and no mirror shift at all, and a true 127 apature. I would definitely recommend this scope and FLO. Tanks from Geoff 👍
