just the new astronomics website. We figured after a decade it was time for a change.

Very nicely done. I like that it's easy to search either by manufacturer or type of item. Easy to navigate. The only issue is that I have to hit the compatiblility view button a few times.

Congrats on the make-over!

fwiw the pages don't render too well on an ipad (safari and chrome) - top banner doesn't scale to fit screen width, and the rest of the page follows along.

Wow, I think that's the most easily searchable vendor Website that I've seen, and I consider myself to be an expert at surfing astro-gear, lol!

Not up yet. Too many things on our plates all at once to get that in from the git-go, but it will come.

They are actually all different. There are different adapter plates for the different filters.

My first pass through and I didn't see any of the /50 /100 etc. differences, I think I had a caching or paging issue on my end ... but now everything is displaying correctly.

Thanks Mike, sorry about false alarm

I didn't notice it either, so no need to apologize. Since all the pics are the same it is easy to miss the minor differences.

Uh Roy, you do know that you've always had the option of changing the color and style of the display?

My Home/Edit Display Preferences ... /Which style sheet ... ?

Yes, but I may cruise CN from any of 20 or more PCs in a given week. The default colors are OK, I was manking a funny. See the funny graemlim up there?

With good humor always,

Roy

I'm sorely missing the eyepiece calculator at the bottom of each eyepiece page. Field of view especially...

That will be ported over, although it is not as simple as simply copying and pasting. We just have to get the little man behind the curtain in the Emerald City to figure out how to get it to work properly.

I think the new website it pretty nice...although I do have to say that I loved the old one. Unless I missed it, I didn't see a "see all" option under catagories. You are forced into selecting a brand in each catagory, ie; dovetail plates etc. I know it is a work in progress but I hope it will speed up a little. It seems kind of pokey.

And please, let us see the Christmas lights in December. I absolutely loved the holiday cheer.

Best,

Linda B.

After more visiting the new website, I do really like it even though it is hard to change from the old. I love, let me repeat, love the ability to see products in a magnified mode. I missed that from the most recent old site. Being able to see things close up is wonderful.

Thank you Astronomics.

Linda B.
