    Jupiter grs 9th June 2018

    Impressed by the colours again , nice indeed what scope are you using? Regards stuart
  4. Yes John great optics it’s a pity that they are currently not making any more telescope s Apparently they are concentrating there efforts on military programs, Ive had 7 ,8, 10” Mak’s of Mak Newt and Mak Cass etc as I’ve stated cool. Down can be problematic but if you plan your observing session before hand it does help, the scope needs a bit of a clean up and I’ll put a starlight focuser on it but now need to source a portable pier tripod as the present tripod is too high !! stuy
  5. Hi all picked up a 10” Mak Newt from a friend, i had one a few years back but sold it ! A mistake on my part there super heavy and do take a while to cool, but boy oh boy the image through these scopes are incredible contrast etc.. the scope needs a bit of TLC cleanup etc but a bargain, sat on a Gemini 41 observatory mount on a homade tripod Stuy

  9. Fantastic scope, Ive had various Mak’s from 7” up to 10” f 15 incredible contrast bit of a pain to Cool down but they are worth it , now enjoying a 6 “ apm apo , But going back to a intes micro 10” Mak Newt you cant beat a bit of aperture
