Some more detail:
This is a Mak-Cas type telescope on a robust Eq mount. These types of reflector scopes have the smallest obstruction possible in this type of telescope which gives them the greatest image contrast across all generally available reflector designs. Contrast is king, particularly in light polluted skies, and is hard to come by in the color-free reflector class. The long focal length gives this scope a high base magnification, which means the more comfortable eyepieces, like a 20mm or a 25mm give up close and front views of the planets. 6" of aperture is ideal for this type of scope, giving you easy access to all of the planets and most relevant deep sky objects. Mak-Cas scopes with equatorial mounts are typically intermediate level astronomical telescopes. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you have about this scope. I'm hoping it can get to a good home and provide a long life great views.
