Just ordered one too for imaging, would love to know as well... I am also wondering if there are threads at the end of the focuser for a t-ring?

would like to know one for AT72EDII as well.  WO scopes provide a dedicated mask and I wonder how AT users obtain or make a Bahtinov mask?

Welcome to the queue. Misery loves company. I have a tripod, mount and eyepieces but no AT102EDL! At least it gives me time to save for DSC and encoders.

 Same here but also have the DSC and encoders as well ... It'll be worth the wait for the AT102ED I keep telling myself

I'm seeing "More on the way" for it now.

It could be. Mike said when an order comes in it's all hands on deck practically non stop until they're done. 

I sure hope this is the case - I've got a whole list of targets I want to work on for my 'soon to be shipped' (I hope) AT60ED!!

I ordered a Bahtinov mask from Farpoint Astro, size Small. They are adjustable and I have no doubt it will fit.

Good evening!

...can report that the latest shipment is out of customs in LA and on a truck headed east. (Though mine has to turn right back west again..)

Wasn't that like months ago?   lol.gif

Sure feels like it.. 

Ten days ago, but I haven't heard anything since and feel bad calling every day to ask.

For a while I pondered adding a 72EDii to my order just to have a reason to call but got a hold of myself last minute... grin.gif

Why not get it from Astronomics and have it ship at the same time...

I suspect everyone that has paid for a pre-ordered scope is going to hear pretty shortly when they are going to ship. In addition, I would not be surprised if we get an email update to everyone on the Astronomics email list regarding the status of the shipment. 

 

It can't be long now, right??lol.gif

Website is showing 'In Stock' for the AT60ED tonight! Hope that means all of us who are waiting will see them soon.

 

EDIT:  If I go to Astronomics from the link at the top of the page, and then use the 'Telescopes' drop-down -> 'Astro-Tech' -> 'Astro-Tech ED Refractors' and pick the AT60ED from the full list it says 'In Stock'. If I filter the full list down to APERTURE '3" or less' it shows 'More on the Way'.  What's up with that?

It's just a secondary page that they haven't updated.  Once they're in stock, we'll know...

 

(If you add it to the cart it shows as "not available")

I'm not currently waiting for an astro-tech scope but I am seriously considering pre ordering the AT125EDL.

No special powers unfortunately, but after I inquired I did hear that it is going to be any day now. lol.gif

They have (or at least used to have) a saying in the Caribbean:  Soon come.

 

That can mean anything from 10 minutes to 10 months.  wink.gif

When I was stationed in Italy they used to say dopodomani.. Meaning day after tomorrow. But in reality it meant some point in time after tomorrow, days , weeks,  months ... it was a common word they used to mean essentially whenever.

I'll post as soon as I get word that it has been shipped - I think they send out an email with FedEx tracking info once it ships.
