The Bresser Messier MC-127/1900 EXOS-2 GOTO system comprises of the excellent Bresser Messier MC-127 Maksutov Cassegrain 127mm (5-inch) f/15 telescope on the comprehensive Bresser Exos-2 Goto German Equatorial Mount, with Illuminated handset, 272,944 object database and built in polar alignment scope. This combination is highly portable and offers the ease of use of a Goto system with a robust, optically suberb telescope.


The Maksutov design is second only to a high quality apochromatic refractor in terms of resolution and rarely requires any collimation or much in the way of maintenence. The telescope is supplied with a simple to use red dot finder and a 1.25" star diagonal and 26mm Super Plossl eyepiece.  The telescope is supplied with an SCT-style 1.25" visual back/eyepiece holder and can take other standard Schmidt accessories.


The BRESSER GoTo System enables beginners to start astronomical observations in just a few minutes and guides you to objects that are hard to find in a standard finderscope. After a simple alignment routine, the Startracker GoTo System will find planets, nebulae or galaxies for you and position your telescope automatically. The GoTo System database includes 272,944 astronomical objects and still has space for additional objects which you can add as your observing career progresses.  The “StarTracker” Goto systems uses servo motors for both axes and features an ST-4 compatible autoguiding input. Autoguiding settings can be adjusted via the handset in order to tune autoguiding to your own particular requirements.
