                                                        Excellent Mak-Cassegrain Telescope

                                                        I'm impressed with the generous Aperture on this Mak-Cassegrain Telescope. It's a compact Scope that I can easily bring up to the cottage for some deep sky viewing. The Mount is also high quality, and very simple to use. Thanks again to Red Carpet for the recommendation.
