He fabricated a refractor tube extension for me that I received last month after ordering in late April. My only communication was the initial email for the order. I did email an inquiry about a month before the extension arrived but received no reply. If you had an order I am sure you will receive it but the site does appear to down.

I was wondering the same thing. I received a refractor focuser from him earlier this year and was thinking about getting a similar newt focuser, but the site is gone.

A telephone number is still available, at least from a search engine.

I hope he is okay.

He does beautiful work, I have the 2 speed ELP focuser for the my SCT telescopes. I hope Dan is just putting together a new website and will be back a cool new look.

Hi
I am worried about Dan also. He has always been available, and does good work. He has done several projects for me, and I am now trying to find him. If anyone knows anything, please inform the rest of us.

From a thread in the Classics Forum.....he's not taking astronomy related work anymore. Beyond that it seems to be a mystery.

I personally could not care less what happened to him, he asked me to send him payment for a custom focuser and adapter so I Paypal'd him the money then he shut down his business without notice and has not replied to any enquiries. He also owes others money and has kept telescope components from people who sent them to him in good faith.
