The Sky-Watcher 150mm 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 1800mm focal length mirror-lens system which delivers up to 300x magnification.
The Maksutov-Cassegrain design is very rugged, low maintenance, and delivers a contrasty image.
