There are several exciting new products hitting the marketplace this Spring;
Here is an update on the status of some of these items;
First of all, if you are looking for a Coronado or Lunt Solar Scope, we are getting stock
coming and going on a regular basis. However, stock sells very quickly when it comes in,
and thus we strongly recommend you place your order in advance; at least 60 days prior
to you wanting it.
The huge increase in Solar Activity this year, has created an unprecedented demand for these
instruments. Available in all sizes from 40mm and up!
We also accept trade in's of these instruments towards bigger aperture H-Alpha scopes.
Here is a question someone asked us in the store the other day;
What is the difference between a white light solar filter and an H Alpha Solar filter?
Answer: Well, other than price, the white light filter will show you only Sunspot activity,
and the H-Alpha, will show your eruptions, flares, Coronal activity and a greater degree of Solar activity
across the Solar Spectrum. In other words, it's a night and day difference.
However, that is also personal preference.
One of our staff members, Alex, likes to sketch Sunspot activity and keep a record of it over time.
In fact, he talks about it all the time like it was manna from heaven. We seriously considered using
duct tape to, well you think about it....:)
Here is a really nice scope for white lite Solar Observing, and you can use it as a computerized telescope too!
Made by our friends at Ioptron
I prefer to observe the wide range of the H alpha Spectrum and of course the bigger the aperture, the more you will see.
Same rules as an astronomical telescope apply here.
UPDATE ON MEADE LX80 COMPUTERIZED MOUNTS:
There is a lot of excitement about this mount, and Meade has been promising to ship it soon, however
we have not seen any product yet. They won't say what the hold up is, and we know many of you have
been most patient in waiting.
Again, if you want one of these, we are still allocating stock against orders we have placed with Meade
well in advance
UPDATE ON MEADE LX800 HEAVY DUTY COMPUTERIZED MOUNT:
Meade expects to start shipping these "any day", as testing has been completed. This mount will handle the
heaviest payloads and with precision. We will have stock available on a limited basis initially ,and
if you want one towards the Summer, we can accommadate you there as well. Please place your order
in advance, as this is not a mass production item! They are built on a small production basis to ensure
the highest quality control
Update on Skywatcher 16" computerized Dobsonian with GPS
We are expecting stock to arrive end of April/Early May. Listen, at $2995, you are getting a lot of bang for the
buck! Don't hesitate on this one if you are the least bit interested. We waited months for delivery after our last
shipment sold out.
Well, honestly, where else can you get a 16 inch goto telescope for under three grand?
