Any pics of the AT65Q yet? I am about to buy an FS60C, but am hesitant due to the possibility of this new 65...

Are there any pictures of the AT12RC that can be shared? Was it not introduced at NEAF?

It was there, and looked very nice, indeed. I didn't grab any photos but with any luck someone did. :foreheadslap:

A buddy of mine who went to the imaging conference said there was an AT10" set up there......don't know if this is true or not but maybe.

There were 2 10" RC's, one regular version and one CF version. The 10" and 12" AT imaging newts did not make it in time for the show.

I also haven't seen any reference to the rumoured 12" f/4 imaging Newt - is it just vapour-ware? I thought there would be one at NEAF. Did I miss it?

The 12" didn't make the show. I would suspect mid late summer.

Hi Mike,
Is the 8" and CGE Pro combo still available? I tried to buy it online from the show, but did not get it in in time.
Thanks

Well I bit. Ordered an AT111EDT on Friday. I really didn't need another telescope, but this one is just too good to pass up.

Considering it's 60mm diameter tube, I'm thinking the new AT finder scopes must be longer than f/4. Can I get a confirmation of it's f/ratio?

There's quite a few in the 111 club now.. Seems to be a bit of a sleeper hit.. Those that DO have them, love them, myself included..

Don, enjoy that thing.. Cant wait to hear about your first light.. I'll bet it's going to be good.. :grin:

Well for some time there were the EON 120 club and now it looks like the new kid on the block is the AT111EDT, a scope which has a very high value to cost ratio, a world class product at an unreally fecent price. Mike from Astronomics you should be real prowd of these new products, they perform great, look great, great fit n finish. My hats off to Mike and company on doing an outstanding job!
