The highly-acclaimed Skymax-127 Maksutov-Cassegrain OTA excels at high-power, Lunar, planetary and double-star observations, as well as being suitable for terrestrial daytime use.
Features a compact but powerful, high-contrast, high-resolution Maksutov-Cassegrain optical system. High-transmission multi-coatings are employed on all optical surfaces for optimum performance.
The new SupaTrak Auto-Tracking Alt-Azimuth Mount is a heavier-duty version of the standard Auto-Tracking mount, designed to carry heavier OTA’s. With its built-in dual-axis multi-speed Servo motors it is ideal for both Astronomical & Terrestrial use. In Astronomical mode, after following the simple set-up procedure, the mount is capable of tracking astronomical objects automatically.
The fully motorised mount is convenient, practical, lightweight and easy to set-up - ideal for both beginners and experienced users alike.
Supplied with FREE Compass!!
”This is one of the jewels in the Sky-Watcher crown. It's large enough to produce richly detailed, high-contrast lunar and planetary images…. The Skymax-127 packs a performance punch with a relatively short cool-down time….For daytime terrestrial use, the instrument is quite capable of focusing down to 8 metres….The new SupaTrak™ mount shares more than a passing resemblance to the Celestron SLT, but the somewhat quieter and heavier duty SupaTrak sports a more robust Vixen-style dovetail clamp…. I found that the SupaTrak was capable of following a celestial object at high magnifications for tens of minutes before slowly drifting out of the field of view, which is perfectly adequate for visual use or simple webcam imaging…. If you are looking for an intuitive and far less intimidating user experience than that offered by cheaper GoTo mounts, the SupaTrak is highly recommended as a versatile grab-and-go system.”
