Maksutov-Cassegrain (Mak) telescopes are versatile optical instruments. They provide very sharp, high contrast images from a compact tube. In addition to astronomical uses, Maks are also popular for terrestrial/wildlife viewing.

Eclipse's MAKVIEW4 is a splendid little 105mm f/13 telescope. It uses high quality BK7 glass and features a wavefront of 1/5 wave (corresponding to a surface accuracy of 1/10 wave) or better. This Mak is capable of high magnification views as well. Planets and Lunar targets are commonly viewed above 200x.

Physical finish and construction are among the best you will find at this price. The integrated flip mirror system is also perfect for attaching a digital camera and viewing through an eyepiece at the same time.  The telescope comes complete with 2 high quality plossl eyepieces (6.5mm and 20mm), a 6 x 30 finderscope, and an internal flip diagonal system. The Eclipse MAKVIEW4 telescope can also be used as a spotting scope.

This telescope is offered in an OTA package with the listed accessories only. However, it can be easily mounted on photo-tripods capable of carrying its weight or on many of the popularly available telescope mounts such as those from Celestron, Synta, Vixen, etc. (not included).
