The StarMax 102 provides plenty of light-gathering power (28% more light than a 90mm), quality Maksutov-Cassegrain optics, portability, and affordability.
Its 102mm, fully multi-coated front corrector lens renders the rings of Saturn in razor-sharp detail and coaxes out the gaseous tendrils of the Orion Nebula. And with its 1300mm focal length (f/12.7) it has the same magnification range (up to 200x) as longer, bulkier refractors in a tube less than 12" long! T-threads on the eyepiece adapter enable direct attachment of a 35mm camera body (with optional T-ring) for short-exposure shoots.
Accessories are top-of-the-line: a sturdy German-type EQ-2 equatorial mount with dual setting circles and manual slow-motion controls; a 1.25" fully coated 25mm Sirius Plössl eyepiece; a 90° mirror star diagonal; and a 6x26 correct-image finder scope, and a fully padded carrying case!
One-year limited warranty.
