The first line of LOMO® amateur telescopes 60 – 80 mm in diameter was produced in 1938. Now, under the ASTELE™ name, LOMO PLC and LOMO America are glad to offer you a new line of recreational astronomical telescopes ranging from 70 to 254mm in diameter, and a new line of spotting scopes from 30 to 95mm in diameter.

Our recreational astronomical telescopes and spotting scopes have Maksutov Cassegrain and Maksutov Newtonian optical design, invented by a famous Russian engineer Dmitrii Maksutov (1886–1964) of the State Optical Institute in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg, the same city where LOMO is located). These telescopes are known for exceptional optical performance and compactness. The wide field of view and the low focal ratio have made Maksutov Cassegrain and Maksutov Newtonian telescopes popular with amateur astronomers world-wide.
