The Bresser Messier MC-100 telescope is a small Maksutov telescope for both ambitious beginners and advanced observers alike. If your preference is viewing the Moon and Planets, then Maksutov designs such as this are hard to beat.

Maksutov Telescopes are more specialised designs which are really well suited for planetary viewing and imaging. Their unique design incorporates both lenses and mirrors which result in extremely long focal lengths (which is required for higher magnification) but in a small compact tube. For planetary viewing, focal length is extremely important and at 1400mm focal length, this telescope is designed for the much higher magnifications needed to view some exceptionally clear surface details on the Moon and Planets. Under the right seeing conditions, coupled with a x2 barlow lens for example, surface features on the Moon are simply spectacular. Saturns rings and much more cloud structure on Jupiter become more visible as well as the polar caps on Mars and the sturdy EXOS 2 mount offers the perfect stable platform to keep everything in check at these higher magnifications.

The Mount:
The EXOS-2 German Equatorial Mount is a long established, intermediate level mount designed to offer a sturdy platform for equipment weighing up to 13kg. While this is the non-computerised version of the mount, a conversion kit is available separately to upgrade it to provide full electronic tracking and GOTO functions also - Essential for long exposure Astrophotography
