Intes MN-71
Not good enough for the high cost compared to the 6"/f8 refractors.

Really? So are you refering to the meade 6" at $8,990 or the 6" AP at $5,000?

Wonderful scope, tiny tiny stars, planets impressive, deep sky very contrasty.
The only problem is cool down.

Meade 6" Refractor cost only $5990 on most dealers, and for $1549 you can get a 6" Synta Refractor plus the excellent Chromacor, with near perfect AP or Tak images, but for $1990 the MN 71 is a good moderate priced alternative to those high priced Apo Refractors, with better optical quality than the most Chinese Refractors. It's a good choise.

Excellent planetary scope. Easily beats similar sized or larger instruments. Serious competition for 7 inch APO at a much lower price. Optics razorsharp.

Disadvantages: collimation isn't easy due to closed tube design and not well-thought over fixation of secondary.
Standard Intes focuser has to be dumped and forgot about immediately for photography.

Would I recommend? With my 30 year experience in every possible brand of telescope, from a simple Newtonian to AstroPhysics refractors: immediately.

Indead the collimation of the secondary is a nightmare, but you can make it a dream. Simply drill a hole in the tube, so you can grap the secondary with your hand. Simple procedure for someone with mechanical skills. It was done one my MN76, now it's dead easy to collimate the secundary.
