Bresser MC-100/1400 is an optical tube in the Maksutów - Cassegrain system with a diameter of 100 mm and a focal length of 1,400 mm.
Tuba works as a short balcony planetary spotter, providing very high contrast when observing bright and compact objects (Moon, planets, bright clusters of stars and galaxies), because it is practically free of chromatic aberration and is relatively insensitive to instability. atmosphere. In addition, it is a good choice for people looking for a very portable telescope with a lot of observation possibilities, one that will be a companion for many trips to the dark, rural sky, and at the same time takes up very little space in the trunk of the car.
The Maksutowa-Cassegrain 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.
Focusing is performed not through the external sliding puller, but through the micrometer screw moving the main telescope mirror. This method of focusing the image provides a very wide range of sharpness adjustment, thanks to which virtually any astronomical accessories work well with the tube, and the clearances on the extractor simply do not exist.
• fixing to a photographic tripod
The tube can be attached to any rigid photographic tripod through a standard 1/4 inch thread. In addition, the tube foot has a profile compatible with the standard "dovetail" mount of the Vixen / Sky-Watcher / Meade type.
