Omegon Maks?

Curious if anybody has experiences - pro or con - with Omegon Maks. I'm thinking the MightMak 90 might be good for some lunar observing. Gotta love the dwarf Dob mount; I could use that on a wooden bar stool that's sitting in my basement. ;)

I assume shipping from Europe would run at least $50, for about $270 total. If you are looking specifically for a small Mak on a table top mount Orion StarMax 90mm is a cheaper option.
