Outstanding event!

Ralph - Elk City huh? I couldn't remember where you said you were from. I went through pilot training at Vance in Enid. Good western OK area!

Multitudinous thanks to Fred and Michael for an outstanding event - even if I don't win anything!

Unfortunately, no. Local folks for the most part, which is surprising, as we had a good percentage come in from out of state -- Texas, Kansas, Arkansas, Nebraska, Arizona, and more. We had about 600 people come through, based on the number of filled-in prize drawing stubs.

I was wondering, did Astronomics have any of their AT 130 mm refractors on display? I know this scope has been on back order for several months.

We did not. Still waiting on lenses after being told they are almost done, or they are in our hands. I now feel like a total *BLEEP* as they still are not done and we have unintentionally mislead consumers due to promised delivery dates that have never been fulfilled. The only update I have is "pending" from the optical house after months of promises.

Congrats on the new store Michael. My wife and I were in OKC this past Spring for my son's graduation and we had planned to stop in Norman on out way to Dallas to catch a plane, but we were running late. Don't know when I'll get back to check out the new digs but we'll continue to purchase online.

Cheers,

I am definitely going up there to check out the store before the end of October. Might even be able to make it up there October 6th.

Is the lens cell for the AT 130mm triplet a TMB design/clone?
