Difference between 5" and 8" mak/cass/sct
Posted 11 October 2005 - 02:38 PM
Just pondering would it be worth the money and trouble to upgrade my 5" mak-cass to 8" mak-cass/sct/....
I would like hear from somebody else's experience about the the difference in aperture . How big is the practical gain in aperture?
I would appreciate if somebody could give me some kind of estimates about this.
Thanks in advance,

I agree with the writers before.
you will become in the 8" Mak-Cass more light to can split some stars more in closed clusters, you will get on planets more details on surfaces and also on planetary nebulas you will see more.

However, there is something to be said for the portability of the 5".
