SKYMAX PRO-SERIES MAKSUTOV-CASSEGRAINS -
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.”
World Exclusive Co-Branding Agreement with Schott
Selected high-end Sky-Watcher telescopes including the Skymax PRO 150 benefit from the inclusion of Schott glass in their construction. Schott is the recognised world leader in glass utilised for precision optical lens systems, including medical instrumentation and famous brand camera lenses. Sky-Watcher’s parent company signed a worldwide exclusive telescope co-branding agreement with Schott in March 2008.
