Apparently everyone is out of stock. Emailed Astronomics, but never heard back.
So happened upon Adorama, they had 7 C-11EHD's in stock, and took a couple hundred off the price, and offered a 2 day ship!
My kids confiscated my 9.25, but its neat seeing them enjoy it. They also took my 20"
Looking forward to Jupiter early next Saturday evening, as we should see the Red Spot and a Shadow on the face!
Will it be too much scope? Do they do visually any better with a focal reducer?
So now I'll have an 80mm Triplet, 152mm APM APO, 9.25, 11" (same mount for the APM) and a 20"
Some Naglers and Ethos EP's, an Elevated Observation deck in the back yard. What next...
What's next is you better be on your toes.
Adorama has a 14 day return policy. And it's the luck of the draw if your item is a reject or not.
So tough luck of you discover on day 15 after you order you don't like it. The period includes their Sabbath, and their when we get around to it shipping.
Their 2 day shipping is a scam. I ordered my AVX through Amazon Prime. 2 day shipping. Took Adorama 6 days to get the box on the truck. It was the very last thing to finally arrive from my Amazon Prime order.
I won't order an eraser from them.
And Amazon Prime walked away as well when the mount failed 5 days after it got here, and Adorama refused to take it back.
Adorama I just black listed. Amazon got as much abuse as I wanted.
I ordered things from Amazon for the next year, looked at them, and sent them back.
You've been forewarned.
Now I use Ebay, get free shipping, and no annual fee's.
