And yes, all the colors will be at NEAF.

Mike, will the white AT72ED show up at NEAF? What about other colors?

I hope they're on sale at NEAF. I'm sure you can sell a lot of them.

The T-Rex mounts. Been reading up on them on KK's site.
Look forward to hear folks views on it.

Cheers,

"impressive" prices too.

How about a similar design (dual axis slow motion, option for well integrated encoders) that's mass produced and sold for say double that of the Voyager? And while we're at it make it compatible with the more popular SVP/CG-5 tripod and not the EQ-6/Atlas.

It will be a show special for $2250ish. That will include rings as well. I think I will put it on the White T-Rex at the show.

Still working on it. I would suspect sometime this summer. The RC line is fleshing out first and the rest will follow. We have a whole slew of Roger Ceragioli doublets and triplets just waiting to go into production.

Michael,

Maybe not now, but I for one would like to see a mount maybe better than the GCEM (like the G11) but around the $2000 limit. I don't see many mounts in that price range that can handle a 9.25 or 10" CAT with rings and a guidescope. And it must have goto.

For all those that can't make it to NEAF. I hope to have an extended walk through Friday Night the day before the show. The booth is usually pretty cleaned out by the time they get to it Saturday or Sunday. We will have the cam up all Friday running tests and showing the show as it begins to take shape.

Michael,

Any allowance this year for bandwidth for the a/v feeds/links? I know last year it was a bear for many to get in - I was lucky and had pretty good success rate. Was fantastic to virtually 'be there' and I'm very thankful to you and everyone that makes this possible.
