The exciting new Mak-Newtonian from Sky-Watcher is just what astrophotographers and serious visual observers have been looking for.
The Mak-Newtonian design provides large aperture apochromatic performance with exceptional field correction in a compact, affordable package. Compared to a similarly sized Schmidt-Newtonian, the Mak-Newtonian yields a sharper image with more contrast. Naturally, the Mak-Newtonian is an excellent visual performer, too.
The Sky-Watcher 190mm Maksutov-Newtonian is a little different from our Maksutov Cassegrains. This telescope utilizes a large aperture with exceptional field correction in a compact package, making it ideal for photographers looking for a large aperture, high quality astrograph. The Maksutov-Newtonian optical tube boasts a shorter focal length than comparable Maksutovs due to the Newtonian design, producing a fast f/5.3 focal ratio. In addition to two borosilicate mirrors, this Maksutov-Newtonian features a front corrector element of Schott glass, creating a flat field free of coma and aberrations. All optical components in the Maksutov-Newtonian are precisely matched, making this telescope perfect for astrophotography with either DSLR or CCD cameras.
