>Can anyone who used this scope (or the six inch version) tell me about it's cool down time with the fan going? I realize that any Maksutov will have a longer time period than any other similar sized scope.

www.cloudy-nights.com has a review on this scope. Mentions cool down time with fan is about one hour and a half.

I purchased a custom set of optics, from what is now TEC, at 9.5" and without fans running in sub 30 deg. temp.s I can still see heat vapors comming from the secondary for several hours. If you don't store your scope outside fan cooling is a must.
