AP's new imager?

Is that the prototype 305mm F3.8 Riccardi-Honders Astrograph on the AP www or something else entirely? I guess I'll have to wait and see.

Tom,
Great start to the journal. I always look forward to your after NEAF images. Amazing after three days some of the stuff one can miss.

Clear skies,

Roland had the 305mm Mak-Cass that he showed last year and the new 305mm Riccardi-Honders prototype. He told me that the R-H was only recently finished and although he's used it visually he still needs to evaluate it for astrophotography. Both 12 inch scopes were on a single mount.

Hi foudastro,

Welcome to Cloudy Nights.
I also would like to see a part II. It is great to be able to view this years NEAF through the archives.
