Konus Digimax-90 overview

  • 1Description

The Konus Digimax-90 is one of the least expensive Maksutov-Cassegrain "GO-TO" models in the market today, offering the ease of use that many beginning observers prefer coupled with a 3.5" catadioptric optical tube which yields nice looks at our solar system, free of spurious color found in a refractor.  You can also use the Digimax-90 as a daytime spotting scope, with the entire kit not weighing much more than a common sealed prismatic refractor spotter and tripod (the optical tube itself is 3.2 lbs, and has a normal 1/4"-20 threaded socket for attaching to smaller tripods).  This isn't the most sophisticated scope by any means-but if you're just after some good solar system viewing, without a learning curve, it might fit the bill nicely for you.

The Digimax-90 comes with a 90° star diagonal that shows things laterally reversed and right-side up, along with a pair of eyepieces and a moon filter.  The mount sets up easily, and a "Red Dot" finderscope allows quick rough estimates of scope position.

After a simple alignment procedure, tell the SkyScan controller where to go amongst its enormous database, or ask for a nightly tour and it will select highlights based upon user-entered information such as the date, time, and latitude.  The database of objects far exceeds the scope's ability to resolve things in the sky, so you'll never be limited by the computer.

Everything needed to begin enjoyable viewing immediately is included in the package except for the 8 "AA" batteries:  a pair of 1.25" Plössl eyepieces, star diagonal, mount with tripod, mount controller, and soft cases both for the optical tube and the mount/tripod.
