Hello to you all. First off I live in a second floor apartment . I have had big scopes in the past like a 10 inch dob/8 inch reflector/8 inch SCT. The scope I have used the most was a Celestron C-5. So knowing what a full sized Orion MVP-GEM mount as well as as a 5 inch SCT is like. I know a 6 inch SCT or a 6 inch MCT would be perfect ! An MCT/SCT scope optics . I Absolutely love to look at the moon all time favorite thing to look at hence my name on here . Then I love small-medium planetary nebulas, double and triple stars, as well as the ever changing planets. I know an MCT has a narrow field of view as well but they are great for pushing magnifications and I have read a 6 inch MCT can rival what expensive 4 inch APO refractors can do and have much more light grasp in a much smaller package . So the question is do I get a 6 inch SCT for generally all around performance or do I go for the MCT which I know caters nicely to the objects I like to look a the most. I really have no serious ambitions of astro photography, I am mainly a full time visual observer. As for the mount I really like the Meade LX65 mount. You can mount all sorts of things to it and it really has good capacity for what I wanna do. possibly mount two scopes at once. What are your thoughts between these two scope designs?
