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.
