Looking for something to satisfy your appetite for power? Try a big Mak! For the most demanding enthusiast, the Orion SkyView Pro 180mm Mak-Cass Telescope sets the standard for high-power performance and compact design. With 7" of aperture and that long focal length Maksutov aficionados love, you'll get tack-sharp views and clearly defined photos with subtle detail and high contrast.

The reason for the outstanding high-power performance is the 180mm (7.1") optical system with its 2,700mm focal length (f/15). With 44% more light grasp than the 150mm Mak, you'll get brighter images and better resolution. And the Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design produces larger images with less eyepiece magnification than other telescopes. It's the perfect combination of brightness, contrast, and definition for planets, close double-stars, clusters, and well-defined deep-sky targets.

Now comes with 2" visual back and 2"-to-1.25" adapter, so you can use 2" or 1.25" accessories! What's more, the threads on which the 2" visual back attach are SCT (Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope) threads, which are 2" diameter x 24 TPI male threads. So you can remove the visual back to thread on an optional SCT-specific diagonal or camera adapters designed for SCT threads. A dovetail bracket on the rear cell accepts any Orion finder scope or EZ Finder. The dovetail rail on the underside of the tube makes it easy to remove the telescope or attach it to the mount for easier setup. Attach an Orion StarShoot Solar System Imaging Camera and you'll capture gorgeous high-resolution color images on your PC!

Orion's heavy-duty SkyView Pro EQ sets a new standard for stability, precision control, and affordability in a telescope mount designed for the demanding amateur astronomer. Its all-metal head features enclosed 360 worm gears plus large, 86mm-diameter setting circles for easy object location by celestial coordinates. The head glides effortlessly in right ascension and declination. Dual slow-motion knobs allow manual fine control, and an optional TrueTrack dual-axis DC drive or Go-To system can be added for computerized tracking and astrophotography guiding (motor drives sold separately). Other features include an azimuth fine adjustment and a latitude scale. The mount accepts an optional polar-alignment scope (sold separately).

Power, versatility, portability - if you're a serious "big Mak" fan then this one is for you!
