But, I can't understand why a 7 inch apochromat would go through so many owners.
If I owned a big refractor like that I don't think I'd bother with any other scope.

Quote:Very nice Joel, about the same vintage as my Traveler. You had to replace the entire focuser, correct? How's the new focuser? I've been thinking about the upgrade but the $670 price tag makes me hesitant. -TimQuote:Astro Physics Traveler (Glossy Version) w/FeatherTouch Focuser Upgrade Circa 1995. My favorite travel scope.

Quote:Quote:My new scope that I got for ChristmasThanks for that pic...I now have a Valentines Day gift for the wife! Perfect rendering of us, my brown hair, her blonde, of course when we were much younger...the scope even looks like the TV Genesis I used to show her her first astronomical sights. Brings back fond memories...hopefully it will for her too! Thanks for posting!
