Types of Konus Telescopes

Konus offers a wide variety of telescope models. Its bargain priced telescopes are only offered in refractor models, while its top of the line telescopes are offered in refractor, reflector, and maksutov-cassegrain models. Refractor telescopes use a series of lenses to focus light in to an eyepiece in order to produce image. Reflector telescopes usually use a pair of mirrors to reflect an image in to an eyepiece that rests at the top of the telescope. Konus's maksutov-cassegrain telescopes combine the features of both reflector and refractor telescopes. This allows a larger number of optical components to be squeezed in to a smaller space, creating a small but optically complext telescope.
