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
