Is the AT65EDQ Still made?

Ideally, I would love it to be $600--like the AT65EDQ.

I know Robert (zerro1) has one, but I think you'd have to pry it from his cold, dead body before he gave it up.
It sure is a mean little scope, no wonder they don't stick around in inventory. For that price it's very hard to beat.

Well Casey, since Guylain has two... you should bribe him for one of his!
Good luck with that

Guylain--Thanks! I've already contacted them to get one. Do you happen to know if there is a remote focus motor that works with your software through ASCOM?
The first thing I did with both my AT65EDQ was to replace the focuser with Moonlite focusers w/ High Resolution Stepper Motors. GULP! The focuser is more expensive than the scope so you need to be okay with that.
Make sure you order the 2.5" draw tube and NOT the 4.5" draw tube if you go with a Moonlite focoser, otherwise it will hit the baffle inside the scope and you will loose about 1" of inward travel with the 4.5" draw tube. The 2.5" draw tube is perfect fort the AT65EDQ.
Send me a PM if you want more info.

We are expecting the next shipment of 50 later this Summer...probably July. No charge till it is ready to ship.
This was the response to my question of stock and ordering
