iOptron introduces a new 6-inch Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope ($849) to its series of mid-sized telescopes. The 152mm f/12.5 tube assembly has enough aperture to resolve many globular clusters, or enable you to glimpse subtle albedo features on Mars. An integrated Vixen-style dovetail bar fits all iOptron mounts as well as those of many other brands that use the Vixen dovetail standard. Each iOptron 6-inch Maksutov-Cassegrain comes with a number of accessories, including a 90º 1¼-inch star diagonal, a 2-speed focuser, 10- and 25-mm Plössl eyepieces, a 2× Barlow lens, an 8×50 finderscope, a removable dew shield, and a hard carrying case.
