It was nice seeing some great scopes in person and meeting some neihbors from Texas. Had a great time wondering around the place meeting people I have heard of on here and talking to reps. Thanks for a great event even though the weather didn't really work out and for having this great site.

The weather put a dampner on solar and any ideas of working late but I got the feeling that most folks did not mind it at all; seemed to be having too good of a time to worry about rain (which it seems we need real bad anyway so it's all good).

Hey Matt he got a good picture of you. I know your job lets you get around the country a lot and if you are ever spending the night in the Elk City area pm me or something and you will have a place to star gaze and a scope to use if you don't have yours with you and congrats on the little one on the way.

Outstanding event!

Ralph - Elk City huh? I couldn't remember where you said you were from. I went through pilot training at Vance in Enid. Good western OK area!

Unfortunately, no. Local folks for the most part, which is surprising, as we had a good percentage come in from out of state -- Texas, Kansas, Arkansas, Nebraska, Arizona, and more. We had about 600 people come through, based on the number of filled-in prize drawing stubs.

I was wondering, did Astronomics have any of their AT 130 mm refractors on display? I know this scope has been on back order for several months.

We did not. Still waiting on lenses after being told they are almost done, or they are in our hands. I now feel like a total *BLEEP* as they still are not done and we have unintentionally mislead consumers due to promised delivery dates that have never been fulfilled. The only update I have is "pending" from the optical house after months of promises.

Congrats on the new store Michael. My wife and I were in OKC this past Spring for my son's graduation and we had planned to stop in Norman on out way to Dallas to catch a plane, but we were running late. Don't know when I'll get back to check out the new digs but we'll continue to purchase online.

Cheers,

I am definitely going up there to check out the store before the end of October. Might even be able to make it up there October 6th.

Is the lens cell for the AT 130mm triplet a TMB design/clone?
