The FirstLight MAK152mm White Tube Maksutov-Cassegrain suits the astronomer who wants high power in a very compact design. Its long, 1900mm focal length means greater magnification, while the broad 6 inch aperture allows you to resolve those magnified images to fine detail - great for narrow-field views.

This is a true solar system specialist, bringing planetary detail into high relief. Narrower deep-space objects are prime targets also, such as double stars and globular clusters.

Mounted atop the sturdy, easy-to-use Twilight 1 Altazimuth Mount, this complete telescope package is designed for easy transport and frequent use.

Features

  • The wide aperture and long focal length of this Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope mean that narrow sections of the sky can be greatly magnified while maintaining crisp images.
  • Includes all the accessories you need to start viewing right out of the box, including a quality glass lens 25mm Plossl eyepiece, a red-dot finder scope and a smartphone camera adapter.
  • Compared to other designs, the Maksutov-Cassegrain is a no-fuss instrument, requiring very little adjustment.
  • The mount head is controlled by a single handle for smooth, easy movement. The accessory tray acts as a spreader bar, adding convenience and stability.
  • The heavy-duty 2.5" Hexagonal Focuser allows for fine visual adjustments and is rigid enough to hold substantial imaging accessories.
  • The nimble proportions of the telescope and the mount's quick set-up design mean this is a telescope that will get used.

Quality and value - across the board

My first telescope purchase and I hit the jackpot with Telescope Space! While doing my research, I found that pricing at the various online sites was very comparable. I chose Telescope Space for my purchase because of the avaialability of the equipment in which I was intersted. Little did I know that I would receive the absolute best online customer service I have ever experienced. And when I was having a problem with my newly purchased telescope (my problem - not the equipment's) I made a call to Telescope Space and was provided fantastic assistance by the founder of the company.

If you value customer service, I strongly suggest using telescope Space for all your astronomical optical needs - you won't be sorry you did. . .

This shroud covers it all.

This shroud blocks out all of the light trespass in my area. It has two slots for the eyepiece and the finder scope. A must have item for this instrument.

Nicely emersive experience.

This lens has me looking into more 2" eyepieces from the same series. The views are amazing and Crystal clear. Literally room to stretch out the eyes.
Ring Nebula is so beautiful through this lens, truly breathtaking.

Fast, reliable, spot on customer service.

I have been in the market for an Ultralight 12" Dobsonian telescope. Ryan helped me with useful information on Explore Scientific telescope. What an amazing purchase. A high quality instrument and a dream come true for collimation. Great company, great scope.

Coming equipped with two decent eyepieces and an adapter is nice. Will upgrade to a 2" eyepiece one day, but not in the budget right now. Thanks to Ryan for help with ordering.

Easy

I'm enjoying the telescope very much. It's not too hard to assemble, although very slowly the first time.
