Sky-Watcher Black Diamond 150mm MAK GOTO telescopeadd this item to shopping cartThis product is highly recommended
Code: BDMAK150-SKY
6-inch (150mm) Maksutov with HEQ5 Pro GOTO equatorial mount


The Sky-Watcher Black Diamond 150mm Maksutov-Cassegrains are the ultimate take-anywhere telescopes with SynScan GOTO control. They are ideal if working space is limited. Despite their small dimensions they offer High-Resolution, diffraction limited optics that are multi-coated to maximize contrast and image sharpness. The MAK 150 is perfect for terrestrial and astronomical study of the sky.

It comes complete with the excellent HEQ5 Pro equatorial mount and SynScan GOTO hand controller. The solid mount allows autoguiding via RS232 connection and the hand-controller can be connected to a PC for GOTO control via many popular planetarium programs. This system is perfect for astrophotography.

Maximum Practical Power 354x

HEQ5 Pro Mount
This heavy-duty mount is a smaller version of the sturdy EQ6 mount. It is specially designed for observers who need the steadiness of the EQ6 mount, but find the EQ6 mount too physically demanding. Like the EQ6 mount, this high-precision equatorial features engraved aluminium setting circles and a latitude scale, built-in polarscope for both North and Southern Hemisphere use, large R.A. and DEC. locking clamps, electric slow-motion controls on both axes, and retractable counterweight shaft and counterweight. The rigid field tripod is remarkably stable with adjustable height, incorporating 1.5"-diameter steel tripod legs.

Handles Payloads up to 15Kg
SynScan hand-controller includes over 13,000 object database plus RS-232 interface for use with PC planetarium software and autoguider interface. Requires (optional) 12VDC 2A(min) regulated power supply.
This is a terrific equatorial mount for astrophotography.
