AstroTech ATxRC bahtinov masks
      #4386194 - 02/14/11 04:06 PM

I have the prototype 6 inch mask here finally and the fit is excellent. Need to wrap up a few more finishing touches then I will make them available. Cost is up in the air yet but under $50 and maybe under $30 depending on the pricing I get back from the laser cutter. These are made from black acrylic and will friction fit the front inside of the scope.



8 and 10 inch will be coming soon.

Price for the 6 inch will be $35 shipped conus. 8 inch prototype will be around the beginning of March. If anyone has an AT10RC I need the inside dimension of the tube in front of the secondary and also the diameter of the secondary. Millimeters preferred but I can convert.

Official Business name will be Echo Astronomy and Electronics. I will be working on a web site in the next week or so. This is the traditional garage business so don't expect lots of flash!

First batch of 10 AT6RC masks will be in the end of next week or the beginning of the next week. AT8RC and AT10RC prototype design will be going to the laser cutter next week also. I have a prototype AT72ED mask coming in the same shipment of the AT6RC masks. I can custom design a mask for just about any scope if you can give me the dimensions with good accuracy.

Looking forward to seeing how the AT8RC mask is. My self-made temporary mask (made of photo paper) is looking a little beat up.

At72ED Bahtinov mask. Think I am going to make the outer border wider so I can glue on a cut ring of foam. Currently I used some craft foam from Walmart to make the mounting cup.

Order is in for the 10" prototype. Probably have it by late next week along with the AT8RC and the Zhummel Z10. Figured why not use one for visual use, set the focus and lock it down.

AT8RC and AT10RC prototypes will be going to the beta testers this weekend. Hope to get feedback from both in a week to make any changes. I am not going to stock the 8 and 10 but I will get them laser cut on demand. Working on getting a laser cutter that will handle material up to 9.5 inches wide so I can make the 8 inch and down myself.
