I am interested in a planetary observations and the scope that I am interested is the SW 180mm F/15 Maks but I have not looked thru one.
I find my long focus 6" Newtonian with small secondary will outdo a 6" Intes Mak but I am looking for even more detail on Jupiter and Mars.
Would a SW 7" Mak be much better on planetary detail/sharpness?
And what about comparison to the new SW 150mm F/8 ED refractor?
I have read good reports that they are well made thought chromatic aberration would limit the performance.
In theory a larger Newtonian/dob should equal or surpass the 7" Mak or SW 6" ED refractor.
If I was to make a dob should it be 8" or 10" aperture?
