Standard practice on many Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes is to have the secondary be an aluminized spot on the meniscus (the Gregory Mak-Cass design).
It comes in a beautifully machined, gold-anodized aluminum cell that threads directly onto the front of a Meade ETX-90 Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope. (You'll need an optional adapter plate to use the filter with any other telescope; Coronado says it will offer the filter in additional sizes in the near future.) The filter itself is made from crown glass coated on both sides with Inconel, a nickel-rich alloy that's extremely durable and resistant to corrosion.
TWO YEARS AGO I PURCHASED a vintage 6-inch Quantum Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope. These optically excellent single-arm fork scopes were built by Optical Techniques, a short-lived company founded in the late 1970s by former Questar employees.
"Ed showed me my first live glimpse of deep space with his 20-inch Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope," she recalls.
Under Maksutov's supervision, a local factory began to manufacture a 70-mm f/10 Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope equipped with two eyepieces in a revolving turret.
