Took delivery of a Cape Newise 8" F6 reflector today. It's a UK made scope from around 2004 and best described as a catadioptric Newtonian. The front glass plate is a plano window and merely acts as a support for the secondary assembly. There are two lenses in the in system designed to reduce coma, one between the primary and secondary, and another lens in the focusser. It's a second hand scope and has a few minor marks as might be expected with an 8 year old instrument but I got it fairly cheap on E-bay. I took the scope into our Optical Clean Room this morning, dismantled it, cleaned all the optics & tube components and then re-assembled. Just a need a clear night now to do some star tests and start the collimation process. Full review to follow. Cape Newise 200mm F6 mounted on an NEQ6 Focuser Tube side view- very short, about 600mm!
