I've had a M500, a M603 and now a M615. Its sharpness is incredible: it puts to shame even larger, quality telescopes.

Yup the intes f/15 scopes are excellent especially the deluxe ones, those lucky few who have one.

Beautiful scopes. Something sexy about the highly curved meniscus. I don't have an intes, but that hasn't stopped me from appreciating the design. My MCT is my most used scope hands down, and the one with the longest tenure by far. Still have it. I love mine, too. Not long after I got it, I began to realize how good it is. It became affectionately know as my poor man's Questar. Er, Intes...I mean. :)

I love it!

I wish I was born a couple decades earlier. I could have obtained an Intes Micro before they went out of production and out of availability.

What rings fit the MN66 tube assembly? I was thinking about getting another set just for mounting finders/accessories on.

Sorry for delayed response!

 

I had rotatable rings that came with mine (which are still a bit puzzling to me on how exactly they work).  The outer diameter of the scope is 7.79".

My Gorgeous Intes Micro 815 Deluxe Mak Cassegrain. This has a system Strehl Ratio of 0.985 and 1/9.5 wave optics. This was one of the last few to be probably manufactures by Intes Micro before they ceased manufacture earlier this year. The scope is incredible to look through and is easily the equal of 6-inch apo.

I purchased this M-500 while in the UK. It exceeded my expectations, but haven't used it since our Q7 arrived a few years ago; I should find it a new home.

Here are a couple of photos.

Unfortunately it's not getting much use lately. Like all Maks it needs time to cool down and due to work & weather my nights under the stars are short and far between. frown.gif

Correct, its an Intes scope not an Intes Micro scope. Some don't know the difference.

Its sort of vague. The Intes telescopes share a number of features, but Micro is usually the one associated with the best optical performance.

 

My M-809 performs spectacularly but is a very early Micro designation.
