Orion Apex 127mm Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope
Orion AstroView Equatorial Telescope Mount Notes: I believe this to be a classic starmax 127 as it has a gold front instead of black. I picked it up from the news paper for $80, cleaned out the spider webs, cleaned the mirror, and was able to put it back together without recollminating.
Astro-images taken through a telescope on a tracking mount provide breathtaking color and detail that you just can't see with your eyes alone. The astro-images on our web site demonstrate the imaging capabilities of the products used and are not intended to represent what you will see when you look through a telescope.
With its high performance and long focal length optics along with ease of setup and portability, the StarMax 127mm is ideal for the intermediate astronomer. Add the optional EQ-3M single and dual-axis electronic drives for hands-free tracking.
