About the Meade MS-6 6" Maksutov-Cassegrain OTA

The Maksutov-Cassegrain design is a variation on the traditional Schmidt-Cassegrain by utilizing a "meniscus" a curved corrector with the secondary coated directly onto it.  The result? Pinpoint stars, gorgeous contrast and color reminiscent of APO refractors but at a fraction of the cost and in apertures most refractors don't dare.  Smaller Mak-Cass telescopes boast these benefits in very portable and affordable packages.  

The Meade LX70 6" Maksutov Cassegrain performs very well in deep sky, planetary and lunar observations.  Resolve details down to 0.76 arc seconds.  This optical tube includes a 9mm and 25mm 1.25" Plossl eyepieces to get you started and will adapt to any mount accepting V-series (Vixen Style) dovetails.  An 8x50 finder scope with cross-hair reticle help make finding your target easy.  A lightweight option for a 6" aperture telescope, the MS6 pairs very well with lightweight EQ and Alt-Az mounts like the Meade LX70.
