BRESSER MC overview

  • 1Description

The compact and versatile Bresser MC-127 Messier 5" f/15 Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope is ideally suited for observing near and deep-sky objects from the Moon to nebulae, and as a powerful terrestrial spotting scope. Its Maksutov-Cassegrain optical path produces a long focal length inside a short optical tube for high magnification potential without taking up a lot of room. It features magnesium fluoride (MgF2) anti-reflection fully multicoated optics that, coupled with its corrector plate, virtually eliminates chromatic aberration to produce images with true color rendition across the entire field of view without halos.

This optical tube assembly (OTA) comes equipped with a 1.25" eyepiece holder and a 26mm super Plossl eyepiece that yields a 73x power. A 90° star diagonal is included to offer a more comfortable viewing position, especially when using it for terrestrial viewing, or when the OTA is pointed at or near the celestial zenith. Instead of a traditional finderscope, Bresser includes a red-dot finder which enables simple and fast find-and-point observation for land and sky viewing where the objects can be seen with the naked eye. The OTA is offered here without a mount or tripod, but it has a stainless steel Vixen-style dovetail plate for compatible alt-az or EQ mounts.
