Ade Ashford Says...

"For the ultimate Maksutov-Cassegrain experience, look no further than the SKYMAX-PRO range. Apart from their striking livery, selected models in this series use high-index Schott glass to deliver high power capability with a heightened degree of colour correction. For high-resolution lunar and planetary imaging, these optical tubes deliver stunning performance for the money."

"Jupiter was a mesmerising sight" ..... "High contrast optics indeed"
BBC Sky At Night Magazine


Great package for the price…The telescope optics are fully multicoated and the secondary mirror obstructs just 26 per cent of the primary diameter, making it good for planetary imaging. Testing the optics showed excellent correction and contrast; results that were backed up by our observations of a variety of celestial objects. Views of Saturn during a night of superb seeing were excellent – we could clearly see the Cassini Division in the rings and the planet’s equatorial band. Contrast on the Moon was very high and it split the stars of the ‘Double-Double’ very cleanly.”

Highly commended
