    Default Experiences with a Mak-Newt



    I was looking at some specs the other day, and I kept finding that Maksutov-Newtonians were consistently better than Newtonians, Schmidt-Cassagrains, or Maksutov-Cassagrains.

    I was just wondering what owners of a Mak-Newt think of their Mak-newts.

    Thanks for he input.

    Hi flyingcadet, that is a good point considering a lot of Meade scopes are heading in that direction. I think the LXD Mak-Newts are a good example like the SN6 or N6. Jimmymac is getting an N6 and can let you know how he likes it, however I am sure there are others that can report here.

    Are you thinking of getting a Mak-Newt soon?
    cheers
