With the performance of a 5" top corrected refractor

This 6" carbon mak-newt has roughly the optical performance of a top quality 5" apo triplet refractor already fitted with a field flattener. It allows exquisite astrophotos up to APS-C featuring a relatively short light thermal-tolerant tube, superior optics and sold together with a nice 2" 30mm wide-angle (70d) eyepiece and an upright image illuminated reticle finder.
This scope is a BARGAIN costing at least 3x less than an optically equivalent fully equipped refractor solution.
The only caveat is the awkward position of the eyepiece ports typical of the reflectors in a eq mount but only a minor nuisance.
