The Starlux190 from Sky-Watcher combines the features of a Newtonian Reflector and a Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope, with both a lens and a mirror. Maksutov-Newtonian design provides the next best thing to the performance of a large aperture apochromatic, with exceptional field correction, in a compact, affordable package. Compared to a similarly sized Schmidt-Newtonian, the Maksutov-Newtonian yields a sharper and an image with better contrast. Naturally, this design is an excellent visual performer, too. Sky-Watcher Maksutov-Newtonian Series benefit from the inclusion of Schott glass being used for the positive front Crown element in the objective. Schott is recognized for their quality of glass utilized for precision optical lens systems, including medical instrumentation, and famous-brand camera lenses.
