The Sky-Watcher 180mm Maksutov-Cassegrain gathers a large amount of light, enough to resolve the Cassini division in the rings of Saturn. Don't let the short tube fool you, this scope packs a punch. It's short body hides a 2700mm focal length mirror-lens system which delivers up to 360x magnification.
The Maksutov-Cassegrain design is very rugged, low maintenance, and delivers a contrasty image. This instrument is an excellent planetary scope as well as being great for deep-sky observing and imaging.
