Scott Roberts drove down to Norman today to help us set up a chunk of Explore Scientific. Twilight mounts, the 80, 102, 127 carbon, and 152. Pretty much all the eyepieces, some binoculars, and we are waiting on the Mak Newt, and the achro refractors.

The Televues and their mounts are up as well. TV60, 76, 85, 101, and 127. Which was super awesome since a nice fellow came in not 45 minutes into our first day of having the showroom and picked up a 101 and an IEQ45 mount.

Did he bring a 25mm 100° eyepiece?

How about the 5.5mm 100° eyepiece?

Not yet. The 5.5mm prototype is due in a few days for final field tests and approval. An initial partial shipment of the production 25mm is due shortly.

Well, hopefully the bugs get worked out and they make it to production soon. Either way, I went ahead and pre-ordered one.

Thanks Astronomics

Mike,

What is the status of your Astrotech scope display. Did you save back some demos in each offering or are perhaps some newly arrived units in for the GO.

We had a few demos, but mainly sold out. We are expecting a shipment of scopes hopefully next week. They should be in customs right now. On display we have a 6", 10", and 12" RC. A 111 and a 6" IN.

Is the AT 130mm f/6 refractor on it's way, too?
