Celestron's NexStar 4 SE 102mm f/13 Maksutov-Cassegrain Go-To Telescope

This powerful, versatile and user-friendly Maksutov-Cassegrain style telescope that can be used for observing everything from the Moon and planets to deep sky objects like galaxies and nebulae.

The scope's Maksutov variation of the Cassegrain optical system exchanges the front corrector plate of the more common Schmidt design with a convex meniscus lens which not only eliminates the need for periodic collimation, but the nature of the lens requires a smaller secondary mirror which limits obstruction and increases contrast. This optical system, coupled with its precision tracking, allows it to be a competent astrophotography/astroimaging platform for the Moon and planets.
