Orion Maksutov telescope MC 180/2700 Sirius HEQ-5 GoTo

The MC Orion 180/2700 telescope:

 

Are you looking for something that will satisfy your appetite for performance? Then try a 'Big Mak'! This 180mm OTA guarantees super-sharp, high-contrast images, with a wealth of detail. With almost 45% more light gathering capacity than the smaller 150mm Maksutov, you get better resolution and brighter images. No other optical system delivers this performance; and at 560mm in length and barely 7.3 kg in weight, it is both compact and portable. With this reflector, there is nothing standing in the way of a great night's observing, except perhaps for a few clouds!

 

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • compact, high performance OTA
  • high-contrast image
  • suitable for astrophotography

 

The Orion Sirius GoTo mount:

 

The easy operation of this GoTo mount, with its hand controller and a database of 42,900 objects, greatly simplifies the location of a great number of stars and nebulae. The sturdy mount can support OTAs of up to 13.5 kg in weight.

 

Included with the mount:

  • robust mount
  • suitable counterweights
  • tripod

Our expert comment:

Maksutov telescopes have their own thread, which is different to the SC thread. This means that an additional Adapter is required. Using this, then makes the extensive range of accessories for Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes available for use.
