I`m buying a scope and have been trying to do my research-however, after thinking that the Russian Maksutov Newt and/or Cassegrains looked good(the Argonauts, as Orion would have it), the "cooling down" period is a problem for me would take me quite a bit of effort to be that patient: don`t feel as if I have that much time to idle...I was thinking about the G9 Schmidt Cassegrain as which is a better scope?/ They ALL seem to come w/ VERY high praise (the G9, the Argo Maksutov Cassegrain and the Maksutov Newt) what should I trade off? Force myself to be patient while the Mak Newt/Cassegrain scope cools? Is the G9 ready to "work" the minute you start using it? Any advice would be appreciated...
