Intes Micro MN-56 Mak-Newt - price reduced yet again
Superb images through this scope both at high magnification and at low power wide field. Scope is f/6, 5” aperture and 762mm fl. There is a fair amount written on these MN-56's if you are looking for opinions. I think Ed Ting pretty much hits the nail on the head.
While Mak-Newts are terrfic, know that they don’t have the fit and finish on par with other scopes (although I like the utilitarian appearance). As is common with many Russian scopes, the tube is not seamless. There is a weld running the length of the tube that makes it a little less than round. One consequence is that the tube rings can strike the tube in certain orientations - and there are a couple of scratches from this occurring shown in one of the photos. Also, the JMI focuser ain’t no Moonlite or Feathertouch. It’s not super smooth, but gets the job done.
mount in third picture is not included, but is available and is an excellent match for the scope.
price includes shipping. the scope will be packed carefully and shipped usps insured via priority mail in the lower 48.
