Konus's telescopes, while containing high grade optics, are not offered in sizes (diameter greater than ten inches) that are normally considered to be professional telescopes. Still, the upper levels of Konus's telescope production line feature amazing optics and capabilities that ideal for quality observing and astrophotography. Konus's highest quality telescopes are Maksutov-Cassegrains that feature fully electronic mounts and focussing systems. The telescopes feature an array of filters, and come equipped with attatchment rings for photographic and digital video equipment. The electronic mounts of these telescopes allow them to track celestial bodies throughout the night sky -- allowing you to hone in on an object and maintain the frame for photo and video.
