UPDATE: Astro-Tech AT65EDQ Astrograph

The AstroTech AT65EDQ has proven to be a popular astrograph since it's introduction.  With a great combination of low cost and impressive results, AstroTech surely has a winner on their hands.

The scope currently shows as backordered, but rumor has it that it will be available again 3rd quarter 2012.  I own one, but have not had a chance yet to photograph through it.  Soon....

Astro-Tech AT65EDQ Astrograph

Announced at NEAF, the Astro-Tech AT65EDQ is a 65mm F/6 Quadruplet Petzval Refractor Astrograph. At only $549.00 ($450 if you were lucky enough to pre-order), this scope promises to be a flat-field astrophotography bargain. Latest un-official word is that delivery is ~ 60 days away.

Features include FPL53 for the triplet, and a separate, dedicated field flattener, dual speed focuser, and included mounting rings.

Now only if the one that *I* pre-ordered would arrive.

Coming Soon....
