Meade 5" LX65 Maksutov-Cassegrain Optical Tube Assembly

Meade's 5" MAK is a top-performing Maksutov-Cassegrain in the LX65 series of optical tube assemblies. The optics have been enhanced with Ultra-High Transmission Coating (UHTC) to create pinpoint star images and extraordinary contrast. Together, this makes the MC5 a fantastic deep-sky performer. This LX65 OTA is perfect for detailed lunar and planetary observation as it easily soars to high magnifications. This Maksutov, aka "Mak" telescope has an aperture of 5" and a focal length of 1900 mm, making it a great portable instrument for visual observing.

To start you off right, Meade is including a 26mm Super Plossl eyepiece that will reveal 70X magnified views. You will also receive a 1.25" star diagonal so you can comfortably observe celestial objects all night long.
