The Explore Scientific MN-152 Comet Hunter is a Maksutov-Newtonian telescope developed together with the legendary comet hunter David H. Levy. This wide-angle telescope is suitable for both deep sky observing and astrophotography. Thanks to the additional contrast delivered by the Maksutov structure, this telescope is suitable not only for deep skies but also for planetary observing! The Comet Hunter is a great all-rounder. When imaging with a crop sensor (APS-C) DSLR, a field flattener is not required.

The Explore Scientific MN-152 Comet Hunter differs from the standard Newton telescope by featuring a Maksutov correction glass that significantly reduces coma. The carbon fiber structure of the telescope compensates for the extra weight of the correction glass and prevents temperature-induced changes in focus. The total weight of the telescope with the included accessories is only 7.9 kg! A high quality 2" 32mm eyepiece with a 62 degree field of view is included.
