Does anyone know if myastroshop.com.au ships their Gstar cameras to the U.S.? Also is there a U.S. supplier for them?

Steve from MyAstroShop ships them all over the world. No they don't have a U.S. dealer.
The only similar camera available in U.S. is the Orion which is a copy of the Gstar-Ex and costs more.

When you see the prices on Steve's website, you can subtract 10% from the prices because overseas residents don't have to pay 10% Australian GST tax.

The mono Gstar-EX is the Mintron 12V6, the color version is the 72S85HP-EX

I use my Gstar-EX as a wide angle finder so I see exactly where the mount is pointed and what the sky conditioning are like. It's now almost 7 years old. It still works but it now runs a bit hot.
