Does anyone own one, or did in the past?

 

I have the OTA only, which I may make a Dob mount for, or use a Skytee 2 and give a GSO focuser. Being F8, easy collimation.

I owned one, and as usual I miss it, and why did I sell it only mother nature knows the answer.

Supposedly the primary mirror is spherical but you would never know you were missing anything

looking through the eyepiece. If the 6 inch primary is spherical at f/8 but a very good sphere I'm sure

it will perform very well such as mine did.

I still have pictures. Very well made, excellent optics.

I had a Tal-2M for a number of years. The mirror was superb.  It gave better planetary views than both my

4 inch Takahashi refractors.
