I'd like to announce that after 15 years I will be retiring from building telescopes and will be shutting down my Astro Sky website after more 2 dobsonian to build and done in Sept. . I'd like to take to thank all of my loyal customers and anybody that purchase my products over the years it is because of you that I was able to continue building quality products and hopefully I was able to make your Astronomical  endeavors a little more satisfying. I plan to use my free time to spend more time under the night sky enjoying the views and pursing my interest of Astrophotography. So again, a big heartfelt thanks to all and clear skies!

I will forever be grateful for the priceless telescope you have built for me.  You will be missed.  Have a good one and clear skies James.  :)

That's not fair. There aren't enough selfless telescope vendors out there. You are not allowed to retire! Well, at least not from my orders!

James,

 

Enjoy your retirement and time under the stars.  Hopefully I will get the chance to observe with you some more.
