I plan on contacting Astronomics about it.. with that said.
They’re an amazing co. First and foremost they have it in stock. It’s also my first purchase from them and they do everything right. I do wonder what sort of deal these companies make with fedex to have free shipping. Double/triple boxed and on my door step in 3 days.
i commend those who set up a bigger scope than the 115 often. Recovering from a dislocated finger and sprained rib but these scopes are cumbersome to get mounted especially after flattener, camera, guide scope and camera.
still working out some issues but initial night out imaging was overall great. A mostly flat field, pin point stars and no purple fringing made it a complete success. I have some cabling issues I need to sort out since all my lengths were set for a C8. I also used a new network cable but it’s way too stiff for the mount no matter what orientation I have it. Going to redo all my wiring anyhow.
So, I called Astronomics and my AT130EDT is on sale ($200 off) So the Cloudy Nights discount does not apply.
But heck, the sale price is probably better anyway.
Once I squeeze the trigger, and shot is on it's way. He told me it's one the FedEx truck and outta there.
He said I'd love the scope.
Wait... wait... wait...
