I decided to go for trying out a big achromat with NV (and for general low power wide field with the eyepiece). While I'm OK with the 6 inch F4 newt for NV, I'm more of a refractor guy and I think this could be a nice capability.
Getting a 6 inch F5...something I've wanted to try for a long time anyways.
I know in the past folks brought up the need to use filters in these situations. Which I do anyways so I figure it should work fine. Any other thoughts on the use of this with NV?
One downside is I sold my FTX recently to fund other items. And that would have been perfect for alt/az mounting. I'm guessing my Vixen porta mount is not going to be able to handle such a scope. But my Vixen GPD2 will handle it no problem. I'll have to worry about a alt/az mount for it some other day.
I think this scope with my 34mm 68 degree should be pretty magical. But I also think the NV should be quite good with it.
