    This exceptional 8" Very Fast Newtonian was designed to meet the great demand for a large, yet very portable, "Deep Space" telescope for those who are especially interested in capturing those beautiful deep space Nebulae, Galaxies, Clusters, Doublets, Etc., that many smaller scopes promise but seldom deliver. Capturing nearly 80 percent more light than top line 6 inch Newtonians, the "Magnum" is equally as efficient at light gathering as the much more expensive 8 " Schmidt-Cassegrain scopes. This ability is required for true "Deep Space" observation and photography, and the "Magnum" is specifically designed for "Deep Space" applications. And if you want to see very high powered detail in breathtaking images of the planets, Moon, Sun ( CAUTION !! : with optional full aperture Solar Filter ), asteroids, comets, and an almost unlimited aray of Celestial delights, this special Newtonian is as good as it gets at anywhere near the price.

    The 8" OTA is similar if not completely the same in many respects with the Orion Skyview, Coulter Astron, Telehoon Skywatcher, Orion/Celestron/Vixen R200SS, and Apogee.
