Details

The Meade DS-2120MAK Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope is a durable, portable, all-around telescope with excellent image quality. The Meade DS-2120MAK Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope is a catadioptric telescope that utilizes both lenses and mirrors to form an image. This Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope combines the advantages of a Refractor Telescope and Reflector Telescope while also eliminating many of the disadvantages associated with both types. Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescopes offer the clarity and contrast of Refractors with the low chromatic aberration of Reflecting telescopes. The Meade DS2120 MAK Telescope has a 102mm (4") diameter aperture primary mirror which excels for Planetary and Lunar observations and will give creditable views of brighter Deep Sky objects too.


This DS-2120 MAK Telescope is mounted on the DS2000 motorised Alt/Atimuth mount which is controlled by the Meade #494 AutoStar controller, with 9-speed settings and an automatic GO TO capability, which makes this system capable of finding any of over 1400+ celestial objects in its database.
Using the Autostar's Easy Alignment could not be easier. Just enter time and date and your nearest city into the Meade AutoStar and the mount automatically begins the alignment procedure. The Telescope attempts to find and centre two guide stars for you. All you need to do is look through the telescope and confirm these stars are in the centre of the field of view - if not, simply center these the stars using the directional keys on the handset, confirm by pressing the enter key and you are ready to tour the universe.


The Meade DS2102 comes with an adjustable red dot finder which makes finding and centering objects a breeze. This telescope also comes complete with quick release adjustable aluminium tripod with accessory shelf. This tripod is more sturdy and robust, with thicker and more solid legs than the previous generation of DS-2000 telescopes. Meade 9.7mm and 26mm 1.25" Superplossl eyepieces giving x140 and x52 magnification respectively are also included as standard.
