Review of the MAKVIEW6 by BBC Sky At Night Magazine (Dec '05)
Eclipse 's MAKVIEW6 was recently favorably reviewed by the U.K.'s leading astronomy magazine - BBC Sky At Night.
The telescope was reviewed several months before the article's publication date in Dec 2005. Since the review, several changes have been made to further improve this telescope package:
- The OTA now comes with a better diagonal (2", higher surface accuracy and reflectivity) and better eyepieces (1.25" 15mm plossl and 2" 32mm wide angle plossl).
- The telescope now employs a better figured/polished primary to address the "touch of under-correction" reported.
- Every individual telescope is checked for collimation in Canada after its arrival from Asia.
