    i cant answer your question. I thought MC lens was to do with cameras, and id assume an 8" telescope would be a reflector.
    If you dont already use it, id highly recommend the "cloudynights" forum to answer very specific equipment questions.

    You're not supposed to say stuff like that out loud - the clouds will hear you.

    Hi Tranan,


    Congratulations about getting your new telescope! If you have a webcam and are interested in joining our Virtual Star Parties, shoot me a PM and we can get the ball rolling. I'm working with another astronomer in Finland at the moment, so I definitely understand the issue with daylight. But this also means that winter observation will be wonderful. Plus there's always the possibility of getting a solar filter for your scope to observe the sun!


    Cheers!
