Intes micro 10” Mak Newt

Recommended Posts

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

Lovely job! On my list of 'must look through one', if not 'own!'

A big beast indeed!

Superb scope Stuy :icon_biggrin:

I have very fond memories of my Intes MN61. If another one came along at the right time I'd be very tempted !

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 !!

Why don't you make a dob mount for it? That's what I always thought would be killer on these large mak newts.

Congratulations Stu. When you owned your 10" MN & MC it inspired me to upgrade to a 10" MN. I still have my MN78 Quartz for outreach but the 10" Just excels with the additional 3" of glass. Mounted on a wheel out AE "B" mount and lots of counterweight! Binoviewing through this is something else!! Astral Sital mirror version. Feathertouch focusor and tube sliding counterweight so I never have to re-position the tube regardless of weight change at the focuser.

Not sure why I felt I needed to add "not my sale" to my last post ?. If I'd owned a 12" Lomo mak-newt it would have been plastered all over this forum for months now ?
