“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe

Quote:I can't wait either!A dew heater strap for it will probably be all I add on.Any idea on the ship date?
Quote:So is it to small for lite visual use?
Quote:Sorry to bring up this post again, but I just discovered the AT65EDQ and can't wait to get one! I see that it's still on the wait list and that it's been a month or so since people have posted on here. So I'm unaware of how far along the wait list is now and if they're still planning on getting their next shipment in late October/ early November? I'd love to purchase one before mid-September but can't seem to find a used one anywhere, let alone a new one online anywhere.Any information or tips would be greatly appreciated!Clear Skies
