Does Astronomics have the AT65EDQ in stock?
      #5854387 - 05/11/13 08:57 PM

Just looked at the website and noticed their ad indicating that two scopes were making a comeback - one of them was the AT65EDQ - just wondering if that means they have that particular scope in stock. I am not sure what the wait list would look like on that one - but would be worth finding out!

Hopefully someone from Astronomics can respond!

Thanks,
Dhaval

The website indicates that the 65mm quad is "wait listed".

We're looking at the next scheduled shipment arriving in July, then another scheduled for late October/early November, another late January/early February, etc.

Thanks Fred! Any clue what the wait list might look like? I know I am on the wait list - but I just got onto it, so not sure if I will make the July cut or not.

Thanks,
Dhaval

Dhaval, when did you order yours? I just placed an order as well (4/24). Hoping I'll be in the July shipment too!

I'd like to get some time in with more wide field imaging. Ultimately I'll be saving up for an AT130 if they ever come back in stock.

If I make mine, you will surely make yours!

Ditto. Thanks frebie for the update! Excited for my first real scope.

I'm already feeling the refractor disease... just when I kicked the camera lens one. Sigh...

Sorry, to bring this back from the dead... but... eagerly anticipating the AT65EDQ shipment!

I figured since a couple others in this thread are waiting for the July shipment too and to kill some time, I'd ask you guys what else you are ordering.

I'll be picking up:
Some brand 1.25" diagonal (not sure yet, open to ideas)
Baader 8-24 hyperion zoom eyepiece
Baader T-Ring w/ 2" Nosepiece (not sure if I should get a filter for it just yet but looks like a lot of options).

So what else are you guys getting?

I can't wait either!

A dew heater strap for it will probably be all I add on.

Any idea on the ship date?

What (minor) it loses in resolution and light gathering ability, it makes up for with a very flat field. If astro-photography is your plan, the AT65EDQ is your scope.
