NIPON 1400x114 (4.5 inch) Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope

£299.00  £199.98
Save: 33% off

This telescope is featured with refra-reflect objective lens, which makes the instrument shorter, lighter, non-chromatic aberration and more powerful. Its large 114 mm objective lens lets in more light, thus providing a brighter and clearer image. With the eyepieces and Barlow lens provided in this package, the telescope can achieve magnification levels from 44x up to 175x.


The large 1400mm objective focal length provides opportunities to achieve high magnification levels by using different types of eyepieces and Barlow lenses (see note below on how to calculate magnification levels). This instrument is ideal for astronomical observation, as well as for nature observation and bird watching. You get a terrestrially correct upright image.  


This scope has a built-in standard 1.25" eyepiece holder which can be fitted with a digital eyepiece/camera for picture taking and video recording through the scope (see note below). It can also be fitted with other types of fixed power eyepieces. Therefore, this telescope is suitable for use by experienced users who know how to optimise the capacity of this telescope not only by using the accessories included in this package, but also adapting other telescope accessories.
