Maksutov-Cassegrains are very similar to Schmidt-Cassegrains, but rather they use convex meniscus lenses in replacement of corrector plates. The main advantage here compared to other similar models is that Maksutov-Cassegrains don't need periodic collimation as many other telescopic models do. In addition, because mirror obstruction is smaller, images appear with greater contrasts, but will have a narrower field of view due to the Maksutov-Cassegrain's slow focal ratio which tends to make this telescope design better for planetary and double star observing.
The Supremo 250 Modified Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope contains the newest advancements from Officina Stellare that help enhance the observer experience and satisfaction. With light exterior materials, a redesigned collimation system and anti-reflective compounds, the Supremo 250 Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope is just taking it one more step forward....
