Maksutov-Cassegrain

Maksutov-Cassegrains telescopes are a compact design that offer superior contrast and are excellent telescopes for planetary and double star observing. Outwardly they appear similar to a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, but have the advantage of not requiring periodic collimation of the optics. Maksutov-Cassegrains do have a slower focal ratio than other common telescope designs, and apertures in the consumer market tend to be limited to seven inches or less.
