Sky-Watcher USA’s hot new scope tested

Combine 5 inches of light-gathering power with easy portability, and you have a winner of a scope.
Sky-Watcher USA's Maksutov-Cassegrain 127mm
Sky-Watcher USA's Maksutov-Cassegrain 127mm offers 5 inches of aperture in an easily portable package.
William Zuback
You can’t judge a telescope by its sparkly tube, but the new Sky-Watcher USA Maksutov-Cassegrain 127mm sure looks nice right out of the box. I’m always excited to try out new equipment, and I’m especially fond of small portable scopes. The reason is simple: I use them more. So when I had a chance to try out this new 5-inch scope, I jumped at it.
