I use my one and only remaining scope, a 72mm F5.8 ED apo. It presents lunar features extremely sharp and is easy to set up as I have to do some tree dodging at times to view the moon, especially during the Summer months.
Your favorite telescope for Lunar observing

I’m planning on using a C6 but I’m wondering what’s your favorite telescope for lunar observing.
With the moon, I usually keep it simple - either my C6 or 102 Mak are favoured, because I can set them up on a lightweight mount really quickly.

I like small refractors and the Moon looks terrific in any of the three I have. I've been favoring the 92mm of late and have just ordered a portable alt-az for it. That EQ mount looks pretty heavy after a work day...
Never tried slow motion controls at 200x so we'll see what happens.
