Quote:The 8" F/10 becomes pretty much a planetary scope due to the limited field of view. O.K guys let me have it!
Quote:If you live in light polluted skies, the longer f/8 may give you a darker field of view. I just made a 6" f/8 mirror for a friend, and enjoyed using the scope when star testing it.
