Product description

Product description

See the heavens in a whole new way with the Konus MotorMax 90 Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope with RA Motor Drive. This unique telescope incorporates the features of four different telescope styles for optimum performance and power. It uses both the lenses of refractor telescopes and the mirrors of Newtonian scopes, and combines the compact design of Schmidt-Cassegrains with the exotic design of Maksutov-Cassegrains. The result is a telescope model with a wider field of vision and a crisper, clearer view that is easy to set up and store.The Konus MotorMax 90 also features a built-in flip-mirror system that allows for a straight-down 90-degree viewing angle. By flipping the mirror and adding the included star diagonal, the viewing angle can be shifted to 45 degrees. Fully multi-coated lenses allow for optimum light entrance and distribution, and long eye relief offers optimum comfort, especially for eyeglass wearers. A 3.5-inch-diameter aperture offers a wide magnification range of 20x to 180x, which allows for equally clear vision of a nearby bird on a branch and deep-space objects. Additionally, the Konus MotorMax 90 is equipped with a compact Equatorial mount with a motorized RA that tracks stars easily. Includes an attached finderscope, an adjustable aluminum tripod with a 3-pound counterweight, and a moon filter to reduce excessive reflected light. Suitable for terrestrial or astronomical viewing. Multi-coated lenses provide optimum light allowance. Combined refractor/Newtonian design uses lenses and mirrors. 20x to 180x magnification range. Built-in flip-mirror system for straight-down 90-degree viewing. Includes Equatorial mount with a motorized RA.

From the Manufacturer

The Konus Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes incorporate 4 optical designs in one scope: the lenses of refractors, the mirrors of Newtonians, the compact designs of Schmidt-Cassegrains and the unique exotic design of the Maksutov-Cassegrain. This results in wider viewing fields, sharper imagery and a slightly heavier unit for any given aperture versus a more traditional design.

A 90mm diameter aperture can magnify up to 180x for deep space objects, but is also right at home at 20x for capturing a bird on a branch. The built-in flip mirror system offers a straight-down view of 90 degrees, or flip the mirror for a 45¡ view by adding the included star diagonal. Your camera can easily be attached to capture the moment.

Tech Talk

  • 90mm x 1200mm -- The first number refers to the size of the objective lens or the aperture of the telescope. Larger apertures provide a brighter image with greater resolution, especially in dim lighting or deep sky observation. The second number 900) refers to the focal length of the telescope or the distance the light travels from the lens to the focused image. Longer focal lengths provide more power through a variety of eyepieces.
  • Maksutov-Cassegrain - A design that utilizes a spherically curved front lens element in conjunction with a similarly curved primary mirror. This configuration provides incredibly sharp images in a compact folded-light path package. The total optical system provides a focal length much longer than the actual optical tube body length.
