6" (f/12) maksutov-cassegrain
Large aperture Maksutov Cassegrains are renowned for their high contrast optics and ability to resolve fine Planetary detail as well as split double stars right down to the theoretical limit of the aperture. The SkyWatcher PRO versions are no exception and boast features you would usually only see on exotic hand made instruments costing several times that of this fine range. The optics are all fully multi coated and the glass is sourced from the world leader in precision optical glass - Schott. The focusers are precision engineered and super smooth and the tubes themselves are all aluminium.
PRO-SERIES is the name for the new generation of professional quality telescopes and mounts of the Sky-Watcher range, targeted at the most discerning and critical observers.
