The Baby is going back to its original owner...thanks Mark!
This is a 180mm F6 Mak Newt with just superb optics. The astro images below were taken through this scope with an SXV-H9 CCD. The Mars image won 7th place in OPT's contest..the smallest aperture used for top 6 images above me was 10".
The inside and outsdie of focus images were taken indoors with an artificial star (tiny pinhole in foil)...virtually identical.
The focuser has been upgraded to a 2" feathertouch focuser with brakes...the best there is IMO.
I've collimated once and it has held for months.
Has dual fans for fastest cooldown possible. Rotating ringe for maximum viewing convenience. Upgraded finder to a Meade 8x50. Has solid, screw-on baffled dewshield.
A top-notch scope, perfect for visual use and CCD imaging!
