SkyWatcher MAK127 OTAW is an ideal astronomical tool for every observer of the sky - an excellent optical tube in the Maksutov system with an aperture of 127 mm and a focal length of 1500 mm. Short design predestines it for "balcony" astronomy and for observation trips. SK MAK 127 OTAW is especially appreciated by lovers of observation and photography of planets and the moon. It is perfect for photographing airplanes at cruising altitudes. In comparison to the cheaper version, it has a 2 "spectacle lift and slightly different equipment.
The Maksutov optical system is one of the most valued optical constructions, widely appreciated for its mobility, ease of use and multi-functionality. It is an excellent choice of both astronomical observations, as well as earth observations and aircraft observations. Excellent optics provide an extremely sharp image throughout the field of view. The telescope consists of the meniscus correction board, the main mirror and the secondary mirror placed on the inner part of the meniscus. These telescopes have a reduced coma and show only a substantial chromatic aberration, giving very sharp and expressive images. A great advantage of the Maksutov telescopes is the compact and compact design and light weight. Due to their large focal length and low light, they are perfectly suitable for planetary observations. This type of construction works well in urban environments, where the main emphasis is on solar system objects, not on nebulae.
The tube can be hanged on a paralactic assembly (EQ3-2, EQ5, HEQ5, EQ6) or azimuthal (AZ4 / AZ5 or strong photographic - the perfect solution for spotter).

This device focuses a lot of light. Looking directly at the sun through this device can result in partial or complete loss of vision. For the observation of the Sun, we recommend the safest method of spectacle projection, that is, projecting the image of the target of our day star on a piece of paper.
