Ain't it purdy? My 'new' 8" f/6.3 Meade SSC-8...
The f/6.3 SSC-8's younger sibling, the f/10 LXD75 SC8, was my first SCT and still one of my favorites. I've had good experience with both 8" and 10" f/6.3s once they have been properly collimated and I'm looking forward to seeing how the SSC-8 performs.
I always liked the white tube SCTs. I have been thinking of painting my Ultima 8 white or maybe giving it a arbon fiber wrap.
