What about the recently launched 6 and 8 inch CCs?

Quality made?

Images taken?

An extensive thread on Cloudy Nights:

 https://www.cloudyni...al#entry9559168

 

Orion sells them, as does Astro-Tech.

 

There are also two threads about CFF classical Cassegrains, one new (search for "star test" in the Cats and Casses forum), and one old (search for CFF).

This seems to be it?  Not in stock:

And Orion (in stock):

Central obstructions 38% (6") and 34% (8").  Humph... same as typical SCTs....  Orion reviewers seem happy (only 3 reviews).
