Maksutov-Cassegrain is a sealed tube telescope very similar to the Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. Maksutov-Cassegrain uses a thicker corrector plate than Schmidt-Cassegrain.

Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope is quite small in size, which gives it proper resolution and high contrast — great for planetary observing. Because of a small secondary mirror obstruction, the image is very sharp. With the focal ratio between f11 and f15, the field of view is rather narrow - meaning that the "deep-space" objects appear very small in the field. Although Maksutov-Cassegrain is small in size, it is quite heavy (heavy corrector lens).
