Last November I ordered a 10” f6.3 Ultra Newtonian for a shop in the UK. It was supposed to ship six weeks ago. My most recent inquiry (a few weeks ago) they told me they had no idea when it would ship that it was in line for assemble and testing. But there where many, scopes ahead of me.
So, I am about to start thinking about canceling the order and try to go with a US shop.
A general outline of the scope:
Visual use only
Price range $2,500- 3,000
Again, I would be looking at a 10” Newtonian in the f6 -f7 range.
#1 priority is it MUST have superior optics!
Maybe a truss design might consider a full tube design
Light weight/ portable
Maybe a Wedge (I know more $)
High end focuser.
A tried-and-true design (OTA and mount)
Please feel free to ask questions if I have missed something.
Effective mirror cooling system
Any thought would be appreciated.
Many, Many Thanks in advance!
