Levenhuk SkyMatic 127 GT MAK
Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope. Aperture: 127mm. Focal length: 1500mm.

Thanks to its Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design, Levenhuk SkyMatic 127 GT MAK is a compact and yet powerful telescope that can be used for both planetary and deep-sky observations. Due to its advanced characteristics and the ability to carry out astrophotography sessions, experienced users may be most interested in this model. At the same time this telescope is a great value to amateur stargazers thanks to the built-in GoTo function.

GoTo function provides for an automatic navigation to 42,900 celestial objects, which means you don't have to know the coordinates of a desired object on the celestial sphere. You can choose the object for observation with the help of a hand controller; the GoTo system will take care of the rest, automatically locating the object and pointing the telescope.

The azimuth mount with the GoTo function can also be connected to a PC (the cable comes in the kit), which allows you to control the telescope using planetarium software. The SkyMatic GoTo mount can be powered by an external 12V battery pack.

GoTo function is useful for experienced astronomers as well since it saves more time for an actual observation instead of looking through the sky charts.

Great Telescope Company

I thought my ED80 Triplet was nice but this ED102 FCD100 is awesome. Delivery and customer service was excellent.

Nice Apo and a Real Value

I bought this scope for an industrial client whose needs are industrial, not astronomical, and this Explore Scientific ED127 is intended to be a beam expander in various Interferometric testing setups. For this, optical quality must be high and the carbon fiber tube is a plus for thermal stability. My purchase of the Explore Scientific ED127 F7.5 APO Triplet through Telescope Space was straightforward and pleasant. Ryan made sure everything was smooth.
Upon receipt I tested the scope by looking at a power pole 700 feet away, one that I have used for many such tests. The star test from the insulator glints was good – the focus snap was crisp, the in-focus diffraction blur was round with a faint first ring. I did not look at the through focus balance with a narrow passband filter as it was obvious there was no SA3. Color correction is very good as you would expect with the glasses used. There is no color in focus, and only a hint of subtle color fringing in the just out of focus edges of details. Extended details on the pole were rendered as well as, or better than, with any similar scope I have used on this target – this includes TMB, Astrophysics, and Takahashi scopes.
The build quality of the carbon parts is gorgeous. The metal parts are good quality anodized machined. I would prefer machined tube rings as the cast ones supplied are a little chintzy compared to the rest of the scope. The rack and pinion focuser works well, but the feel is not as good as some stock friction focusers I’ve used. Considering the extra high weight capacity of the focuser the feel may be the price paid. Overall I think the mechanical appearance and function is in line with the price.
I would certainly consider the Explore Scientific ED APO FCD100 triplet scopes for my personal use. My transaction with Telescope Space was great and I will do business with them again.

Review on Firstlight AR 102mm f9.8 on EXOS NANO EQ3

A great package for the price! The mount is steady! The Optics excel, in that the resolution and contrast are everything to be expected in a quality refractor! H.B. Appleton, Hi.

The staff at Telescope Space were very supportive and helpful as well!

Astrozap Dew Heater Strap for Telescope

Workd good on my C8 telescope after connecting a standand 12v powertank connector

Explore Scientific Mak Cas 152 with EXOS2GT MOUNT

I did considerable shopping around and finally decided to buy my 152 Mak from Telescope Space. Ryan was very helpful with all my questions concerning Explore Scientific and my specific purchase. After a short period using my scope and mount, the mount seemed to have more play than it should have. Ryan had the Explore Scientific owner call me directly, where he immediately offered to exchange my mount. He also had the factory ship out the new mount while I was still using my original unit. Excellent service and sales support from both Ryan at Telescope Space and Explore Scientific. I will buy again from Telescope Space!
