Re: Maksutov Telescopes

My suggestion, if this is your first DIY Maksutov;

Build a 6” Mak from scratch, I constructed one a while back, based on my experience a 6” Mak is an order of magnitude more difficult to construct compared to the garden variety 6” F/8 Newtonians for any skilled DIY’s.
Once you get a taste of what it takes to build a small Mak I am pretty sure that you will abandon the 16” Mak project.

A 16” Mak is not a DIY project.
