It's a bit lost in history now, but my favorite Mak-Newt is the Vega 6" designed by Robert T. Jones. I had the pleasure of meeting him at his home one afternoon. Friends were constructing an 8" at the time. The 6" however was the sweet spot IMO. Portable, wonderful optics at f/4 and f/12. Butter smooth helical focuser. Complete with EQ mount as well. ~$1600.
