6 inch Mak-Cass is possible Maximum to use.
Wednesday, 4 May 2022  | 

So far, it is good price range and can handle a 6 inch Mak-Cass OTA.
However, it seems difficult to use 8 inch class. I will try to check it soon.
One thing is very required to adjust Alt-Azi fine knobs, which are missing now.
Compared to heavy ones, it is light and a bit lower capability.
Alt-Azi is very convenient for visual observations, I recommend it for who has under 6 inch reflectors.
