hi i am relatively new to astronomy. i currently own a c130 mak gt. i was looking at the intes micro m606 on ite. i know it is intended for astrophotography. i would like to get into astrophotography. i allready have a canon eos 20d wich seems to be a worthy camera for the task. what i would like to know is if this telescope would also be acceptable for straight visual use as well, and would it be a noticeable upgrade over my c130 in that respect?

No, it would not work well visually. The central obstruction is very large and I believe there are some issues of bring EPs to focus. I would contact Mike at ITE if you want the low-down on this scope.

I would recommend the M603 over this scope if you want a dual visual/photo Mak.

There is a special pricing on for this scope, probably due to lack of demand. It is a specialized scope and designed stricly for astropho use. ITE sells other scopes that I recommend highly. Do talk to Mike Palermiti. He is a good guy.
