: Can anyone tell me about this scope, it's a Cave 6" Classical Cassegrain. It Looks like a reflector but the eyepiece is in the rear just like a Celestar. I am looking to buy a first time scope and I have not seen a scope like this. The owner states that the mirror is by "Fagan" and it has a focal length of 1800mm. Is this a good design, good scope, and could it be used for astrophotography with the correct acc. Thanks

Hey: I saw your question posted about using a 6" Cave cassigrain, For your peace of Mind YEP your cave is an ecellent scope for all around astronmy use and for astrophotography. The next thing you should be concerned with is make sure that you have a GOOD Steady mount and a Good, Accurate clock drive. Astrophotography is very tricky for first time pic-takers so dont be discouraged if you dont get good results right away, remember practice makes perfect.
