I know. However, I want to see the thing before I go nuts. The photos of the scope look nice, but I want to get my hands on it. If it is what the specs lead one to believe...we may just have something.

So much for pursuing the AT 103 f/7 TMB designed doublet.

Just found and downloaded the Guangzhou Bosma astronomical telescope catalog for 2009/2010.

Good lineup of products.
Including a 102mm f/6.5 ED triplet refractor. :thinking:

Linky to catalog download.

Nice link, Clive ... I wish they had a 'typical' website to visit. Their catalog is kinda a pain to look through. :p

Interesting stuff, tho ... thanks! :waytogo:

Not to get too off track, but those Startracker mounts are the same as iOptron's offering. Are they made by this company?

The EM-11 has a close resemblance to a Vixen Sphinx, too ... :thinking:

Ooops, I wonder who the new vendor is? :grin:
