ORION 180mm MAKSUTOV-CASSEGRAINIAN

Posted by Lawrence Carlino 03/20/2008 12:00AM   (Reviews/Telescopes/Cats)

Certainly, a quality APO refractor is a favorite tool of the high-resolution aficionado, and a long-focus Newtonian reflector is also very desirable, but the cost of obtaining an adequate mount for the long and heavy tube assemblies may easily double the price of the telescope alone. This is where compound catadioptric scopes have found their niche in minimizing tube length and weight while still providing excellent image quality.
