With a unique meniscus-shaped front glass lens element, the Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design has a strong optical heritage in astronomy. Utilizing a spherically curved front lens element in conjunction with a similarly curved primary mirror, this incredible design provides remarkably sharp images in a compact folded-light path package.
The total optical system provides a focal length much longer than the actual optical tube body length to yield an awesome imaging scope convenient enough to take out in the backyard or on the road. This advanced design has typically been found only on many higher-end systems often Light path through a Maksutov-Cassegrain used by professionals. Now Bushnell brings this incredible professional optical system to the NorthStar family telescopes.
