130 Starfire GTX received


J. Belden
 

Just wanted to thank the Astro-Physics staff for a wonderful 130gtx.  Just drove up from TX to WI so it was like Christmas for me today and even clear.  Though, I need to order the proper dovetail plate(not risking only 1 bolt per mounting ring), I waited awhile so what’s a couple of days to avoid heartbreak.
It will be riding high on my AP1600 AE.  Thanks again but will be armed for bear when I get the dovetail plate.

Cheer,
Joe Belden

Thanks Chris, I am sure my TOA130 might be going up for sale after getting some imaging time under my belt.  Just on the fence on buying the QuadTCC as I might need to buy another camera as my other ccd/cmos cameras have 6-9 um pixels.  Oh, well the joys of this hobby and I have another excuse to tell my wife that I need a newer better camera to fully enjoy this scope.  Though, I will say she was almost as excited as I was opening up the box.  She said it was a beautiful looking scope and took plenty of pictures.
