As far as I remember Intes Micro made also f/6 Mak-Cass.
5" and 6" Synta MCTs are nominally f/12

The f/6 Intes Micro scopes are not Maksutov Cassagrains, they are Maksutov Newtonians, which is a far different design.

This is the one I was referring to above:

It is an f/6 mak-cass with field corrector near focus.  But yes, it is completely different from a spot maksutov since the secondary is separate from the meniscus and there are additional corrective lenses.  It's more like a cdk with a little help on spherical from the meniscus.
