I was originally scheduled for November, which has gone by. Anybody gotten one recently?

I changed my order to a 1600 so am out of the loop now.

There is a post on the AP-GTO Yahoo group from one individual who received his 1100. Post was dated Nov. 30. When he actually received the mount is not stated, just first use was on that date.

It's the only report of an 1100 "in the wild" that I have heard of.

I got mine last week except the dec axis box needed a signature so I just got that last night. I just got it together last night but haven't really had any use yet. It's very nice as expected. I used to have a Mach One so I'm getting spoiled by AP quality.

Thanks. I got on the list early and received the first notification some time ago and sent the deposit. Just waiting on the second one requesting the balance prior to shipment which AP predicted to be November.

I'm glad to see some "out in the wild".

I've already got a Mach 1 and 900GTO. Love both but will probably let the 900 GTO go after I've made my comparisons of it to the 1100.

I ordered mine last week in August and received invoice for final payment in early November. I was also told that final invoice usually precedes shipping by two to three weeks.

Still waiting here. :crazy: I went on the notification list last June, ordered and paid the deposit in August when the letter went out to everyone on the list. I was told at that time to expect a November delivery...like everyone else I guess. I called the week before Thanksgiving and the news was not so hopeful. I think the individual on the phone was trying to let me down easy. I did send my final payment so, now paid in full. I got the impression that I would likely not see my mount until late January or even February. I know it will be more than worth the wait once I get it, but the wait is...well what waiting always is, a bit of a pain.

Congrats Jeff! When did you place your order and was it direct through A-P? I had placed my name on the notification list and placed my order and deposit through Anacortes during the first few days before the offer went public. Paid balance off in early November. Gotta be getting close...

I ordered mine direct from Astro-Physics on August 27th (the week before they went on sale to everyone not on the waiting list). I just got my second notice last week. I'm not sure when it will actually ship, but I got the impression that it would be a matter of some additional days and not weeks. I'll let everyone know when I get a shipping notification. :-)

I ordered mine from Anacortes and it's being delivered tomorrow! Apparently I was the second person who ordered from them and the first was delivered mid-week last week. I'm sure they'll be rolling out on a regular basis now.

Got mine delivered today. UPS screwed up the order. It was supposed to be five boxes (including accessories) but the next day after A-P shipped the boxes, the shipping status showed one box was "missing" and re-sent the "missing" box back to Astro-Physics?!?!?! How can this box be "missing" if UPS delivered it back to A-P? Neither UPS nor A-P ever figured out what happened. Anyway, A-P reshipped the 5th box and should get here on Wednesday. The 5th box contains counterweights.

I am waiting for ATS portable pier and should be delivered within 2 weeks. I can't use or test the new mount without the pier. ATS pier is dropped ship from ATS factory so it's a separate process.

Well I've got 146 pounds of stuff in seven boxes coming (hopefully). They're in town as of now so shouldn't be any issues in getting it delivered tomorrow. I would have loved to get an ATS pier, but for now I'll be using a modified giant field tripod. What size pier did you end up getting and what scopes are you planning on putting on it?

I ordered from Astro-Physcis. If you ordered from the dealer, I believe the mounts will be drop shipped from A-P.

I am getting 42" tall and 8" diameter ATS pier. I am going to use TEC 140 APO.
