This Russian Mak was made in the 1990’s. It is a 6 inch f/10 and has the original mount hardware, finder and unique guidescope. The guidescope is a 60mm f/22. Finder is 10x30. New at the time was a quartz control motor and this one has a nice speed control with guiding capability, though no dec motor.

The optics are in great shape and deliver a clear sharp image. There are a few very minor blemishes that don’t show up in the photos. They are not serious. The scope does not need internal cleaning. The scope has lived for many years in the clean dry air of Colorado. We don’t have problems with coatings or fungus here.
Like all Russian scopes, this one seem to have been designed to ride on a tank and endure hostile fire. Robust is an understatement! I made the adapter on the rear of the main OTA. It is two inch adapter so you can use any two inch accessories in it. But there is no internal focus on the scope so you would need some device to focus a camera or eyepiece. There is a generous amount of back focus to allow for such things. The supplied diagonal has built in focusing and works fine. It is much like the focusing diagonal on the finder and the two systems are interchangeable.

The finder is a nice one with a nifty reticle pattern, but it is right angle. The guidescope really interferes with optical use of the scope so I only mounted it for display or on the few occasions I tried doing astrophotography with the scope. The fork mount is much like a Meade or Celestron with a nice dec slow motion control.

I mounted it on a Celestron tripod which works well but is not original. This scope will garner a lot of attention at a star party. Most people have never seen anything like it so bring a flyswatter to keep them at bay! But it’s also a very nice little scope for simple observing with very good optics.
