The SmartStar Cube-G-MC90 telescope system is the ideal choice for deep space viewing and astrophotography. This 90mm-diameter Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope dramatically reduces the chromatic aberration that plagues its Refractor counterparts and has a focal length of 1200 mm. This light weight, ultra-compact scope offers a great combination of power and transportability, and brings stargazing to a whole other level.

Key Features
  • Alt-Azimuth mount - The Cube
  • The most easy to understand controller on the market
  • More precise speed control for viewing objects
  • Stainless steel tripod
  • GoToNova computerized control system
  • 32-channel GPS module
Alt-Azimuth mount - The Cube
The SmartStar Cube-G-MC90 comes with the patented Alt-Azimuth telescope mount, a.k.a. The Cube. This compact mount design is probably the most functional and flexible unit on the market. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit which is universally compatible with all telescopes using a dove-tail connection. In addition, there are no "dead spots" - so you can point your telescope to ANYWHERE above the horizon, whereas, other mounts block the telescope tube at certain points of rotation.
The most easy to understand controller on the market
The GoToNova controller is much easier to use than other similar products. The hand controller is more intuitive with menu categories better organized. It also has the largest LCD screen on the market with 8 lines of content compared with others that only have 2 lines. Using the easy-to-use hand controller, you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go.
More precise speed control for viewing objects
The control system also allows you to slew the telescope at 5 different drive speeds, keeping the object within the telescope's viewfinder for as long as you wish.
Stainless steel tripod
Made of 1-inch heavy-duty stainless steel the Cube Tripod is sturdy yet elegant, and gives the user unparalleled stability during operation. Solid construction joints keep your mount locked securely. With an all-metal support system your valuable telescope will keep still even on a windy night.
GoToNova computerized control system
The revolutionary GoToNova computerized control system is by far the most technologically advanced automated tracking system available on the market today. With a database of 50,000 celestial objects, including all of the most famous galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, not to mention the planets, you'll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button.
32-channel GPS module
All G-series telescopes come standard with a 32-channel GPS module for fully automated operation. Simply turn on the GoToNova controller and the GPS module will automatically synchronize your telescope location and time with the GoToNova computerized control system. View celestial objects without having to manually punch in the date, time, latitude or longitude.
