Another surfacing of the elusive Synta 8" mak, which I've also seen 
advertised as f/9.9.  Saxon is one of the local names in Oz for Synta, so 
expect an Orion version soon. ;-)

No idea yet about details, size of central obstruction, or even cost etc.

But this brings up a question that's been nagging me:  I'd always thought 
that Maks were harder to manufacture than SCTs, so why the Chinese have gone 
this route?  Any ideas?  Is it just that Maks are harder to make really 
well, like the AP version?
