Late style (2001) MN56. Excellent condition. Primary and secondary have Sirius Optics 98% premium Enhanced Silver coatings (cost me approx. $100). Original accessories include Crayford focuser, finderscope mount and rings (but no finder - bought it that way), dust cap, removable plate behind primary mirror for faster cool-down, tube ring and base, and padded carrying case. Also includes Intes-Micro optional screw-on dew shield shown in picture (normally $75). Includes Telrad base, but not the Telrad itself. This scope shows beautiful pinpoint stars, black contrasty sky, excellent resolution and contrast on planetary and lunar. Have split many tight doubles and easily meets it's theoretical resolution limits when seeing permits (split Porrima the other night just fine). I'm selling to make room for some new stuff and I also have a MN61 which I've decided to keep and I don't need both mak-newts. The MN56 keeps up with the 6" MN61 pretty well and there is only a slight advantage in light gathering and resolution due to extra aperture with the 6" MN61. There is a small "sleek" (on coating, not a scratch) about a 1/2" in length on corrector which in no way affects optical performance. A bargain at $565 plus shipping and insurance. Please feel free to email any questions, etc.
