: I am considering the purchase of a Maksutov-type telescope, : specifically the instruments from Meade (7") and Orion/Intes (6"). : Any information on the (optical) performance of these devices : would be appreciated.

I own the 7" Meade and I can tell you this, it blows away ever other scope I've ever had. Planetary views are awesome. The scope is heavy so I keep it permanentlly set up in my garage. Optically-Outstanding.
