Moving On said: Nice looking scope, Moving On. Never quite got one that big, although I owned a Meade 2080 for a few years, but sold it to a college student who really wanted a Schmidt Cassegrain. I use my Celestron Nextstar 6SE a lot and when I need a wider field I use the Celestron f 6.3 reducer/corrector for that purpose. For more portability I have a couple of Orion Apex Maks: The 90 and 127. I use them with a Vixen Porta II or a mount that I cobbled together out of a video tripod and a table top Dobsonian mount. I have a 37 year old Celestron 90 with drive and wedge which was my first serious telescope. Also have an Orion Short Tube 80 for traveling. I'm still considering larger, but likely a large Dob as six inches is as large as I care to go with a SCT or a MAK.
