Interesting...

I have had an order in for a Pressure Tune upgrade for almost two months now... originally it was only suppose to be 2-3 weeks.

And dealers have them in stock? Odd... and disappointing. I guess preorders do not take precedence over dealer stock levels.

I was able to observe with the 60mm h-alpha/Pressure Tune this weekend at a star party Alan Traino and I both attended. Fabulous design guys!

Adam,

I don't believe that is the case.

We had pre-ordered ourselves so that we could take an example of the two scopes to the Cherry Spring Star Party which we managed to do (the scopes arrived the day I was leaving). Sadly the weather did not co-operate or I am sure the scopes would have been snapped up at the show.

I want to assure you that we didn't jump the queue and that I am certain Lunt are working flat out to satisfy customers such as yourself (demand for the upgrade is huge I am told).

Erika,

Alan spoke to me of the enjoyment he had this weekend and how popular the Lunt was. He also mentioned your skills as a "solar artist" which is something I was unaware of but have vowed to check out.

Sounds like there was more sun in Ohio than in PA :)

Morris,

Thanks for the update. It turns out I received an email from Lunt shortly after posting letting me know my upgrade was in and I can send the scope back to be retrofitted.
