At the moment, been using the 6" F10 Jaegers. I doesn't have cool down issues, optics are very good, it rocks on Saturn and Globular clusters. My C11 is pretty good, Had an issue with collimation. Like to use my 6"F8 homebrew newt.
Least favorite??? Sears 6339. No easy way to get a larger FOV.
and I prefer my Jaegers 3" F15 and Vixen A80Mwt

I pretty much voted exactly as Jon Issacs voted. The question that interested me most was

Question 1. How often do you use your classic; compared to newer scopes?I answered

d. occasionally, I just take it out once in a while for fun my newer scope works better/is easier to use/etc



Here in this OLD POST I mentioned why I like to collect old classics. We all have our reasons, there is no right or wrong answer in regards to the forum just a right answer for you.


2. How do you use your classic?

a. mainly for planetary, lunar, and/or double stars


3. How did you get started with your classic?

d. I collect a lot of things, old telescopes are cool


Great thread I wish more members would take the poll.
