Takahashi Mewlon 250

Dall Kirkham Cassegrain

My Big impetus on buying the Mewlon was for planetary imaging.  I had heard great things about the mewlon, and I was not disappointed in its performance. I bought it used from the San Fransisco area and it was in serious need of cleaning and collimation. The image of Saturn was taken before I did the last bit of tweaking on the scope.

 

The resolution and contrast of the scope are wonderful. It is not a wide field scope, but it performs admirably on the moon and planets.
