New Astronomics Web Site

Congratulations on your new web site! It is graphically pleasing and functionally much better. I have one recommendation: please list the weights of your eyepieces. For some reason, it is left off the tech details on your new site. http://www.astronomics.com/televue-6mm-1-25-inch-72-degree-field-delos-eyepiece_p19199.aspx

Looks like the weights were accidentally truncated on all eyepieces when moving products and specs to the new site. We will try to get them up soonest. There are other items to be worked on, like the field of view calculator for eyepieces that also got lost in the transfer. As mentioned elsewhere, the new site is a work in progress. It will take some time to get it the way we want it.

Eyepiece weights are up. We continue to tweak and improve.

Love the new website but there must be something wrong with it.....the AT130 is still listed as out of stock.

Congrats on your new web site, but it seems to have serious problems on my iPad - each page becomes a very tiny image in the center of the screen (first gen iPad running latest software).

As Michael commented in another thread, "It worked on the first iPad, at least that is what our browser support app said, so now Mike L is working on it with the other versions. Hopefully it will obey shortly."

Today, the text is garbled on the Pentax site: http://www.astronomics.com/pentax-5mm-xw-extra-wide-angle-eyepiece_p3399.aspx

You may have caught it in the middle of Mike L making changes to cure display bugs in IE8 that don't show up in IE9. It's working fine now. If it's still garbled for you, F5 a few times to refresh the page. It would be nice if all versions of IE (or all browsers) worked the same way, but that's not the case.
