Anyone know anything about this scope? There's one on Astromart for $550. I know it's an 8" SCT made in Japan, but that's about it.

They are not known to be of good quality. You'd be smart to pass this one up. If you want an SCT, stick with Meade or Celestron.

If ever in doubt about an older SCT, check out:
