this is really heavenly tools. For primary mirror I obtained analysis of its surface:

The contrast is much better than in my old refractor novosibirsk TAL 100/1000. The stars are pin-point even "over border" of visual field! I use ortho eyepieces Kasai. This newton is result of long way when I searched good planetary equipment (dobson 250/1500 - too sensitive for bad seeing in my place, refractor 100/1000 TAL from Russia - too small diameter and klevtzov-cassagrain 150/1550 TAL 150K - also bad for observing of Moon)
If you are planetary lover so I wish you such instrument..
