The optics MC 127/1500:

This telescope is already a very compact and powerful telescope for planetary and deep sky observations. Its 127mm aperture Maksutov Cassegrain optics can collect approximately twice as much light as a 90mm telescope. Although the overall length of the tube was maintained at just 33cm, it has its design on a focal length of 1540mm. This enables a high-contrast planetary observation and many recognizable details. Even the most deep-sky observations are possible. The light gathering ability is at 329x of a dark adapted eye with 7mm. As a spotting scope for nature watching, the look offers a suitable alternative for low price. There are many adaptations for nature photography available. At 1540mm focal length for example there can be bird photography in low-cost operating area. An integrated T-2 threads makes it quite easy to connect an SLR camera. Of course you can make for example moon shots. The sharpness can be adjusted with a side knob. This moves the primary mirror in the front or rear direction. This mechanism enables a large area for the focus and offers a variety of adaptation possibilities. The external appearance is a real gem: It impresses with its elegant design, tube and finderscope shimmer in an aesthetic black tone.

The advantages at a glance:

  • Compact optics with long focal length and 127mm aperture
  • Camera tripod thread connection 1 / 4''
  • High-contrast image
  • 1.25''connection with T-2 thread
  • Even nature observation and photography possible


Delivery of the optics includes:

  • Tube with lens
  • viewfinder

The AZ-Go2 mount uses its motors to make the telescope follow the rotation of the sky. Its integrated computer controls (“GoTo”) helps by selecting a suitable celestial object and points the telescope towards it.

One of the AZ-Go2 mount’s special features is its integrated Wi-Fi. This enables the mount to be controlled remotely using the free SynScan app for iOS or Android. You need a smartphone or tablet with this app to control the mount this way. It is also possible to control the mount using optional hand-held controls, but the app provides more functions and can always be kept up-to-date.

The AZ-Go2 mount is a single-arm mount. This makes it lightweight and compact. Due to the mount's curvature, the telescope does not touch the mount when it is pointed sharply towards the zenith.

The telescope is attached to the mount using a clamp (mounting saddle). This is a Vixen-style clamp and enables various scopes to be attached, even from other manufacturers.

The height-adjustable stainless steel tripod with accessory tray holds the mount and the telescope steady with no shaking whatsoever.

The mount has a battery compartment but can also be powered using an external battery (12V/1A).
