From Ars Technica:
"One of the main innovations on the launcher is the upper stage."

From Ars Technica:
"Europe’s first Ariane 6 flight achieved most of its goals, but ended prematurely"
"Ariane 6 launched into orbit, but an upper stage problem kept it from completing the demo flight."

At least there were more successes than fails so good for a first launch.
Some refractors, eyepieces, mounts and related equipment
