First light report from Astro Sky Telescopes

Posted By Kent Kramer

I can't wait to read your first impressions Floyd. You wanted the best regardless of whether or not it was obvious at the eyepiece. Your the one that has to be blown away. I bet you will be.

DSLR mount to Newtonian?

Posted By Kent Kramer

T rings and adapters for your specific brand DSLR will get it done. Search on the Anacortes web site for T ring, T-ring, adapters, your brand of telescope, your brand of DSLR. That should get you to what you seek. Also, open the sponsor links and view what they have available. As I recall a few may have what you need or the ability to custom manufacture it for you.

Mars dust storm!

Posted By Kent Kramer

I am just aching to be out tonight with the Mewlon. The sky here in Minnesota is full of clouds with some sucker holes. Checking cleardarksky.com looks poor as well. Make sure and report back what you see for all like me who are likely hosed tonight.

Fading diagonal

Not unless you want to have it anodized again. Black anodizing sometimes turns purple. Doesn't hurt a thing. Character is good.

Soft bags for eyepieces/assorted bits?

Posted By Kent Kramer

Google for pick and pluck foam or contact any of the case manufacturers/distributors/e-tailers. Most sell replacement foam. I would bet they could help you.

Is it fair?

Posted By Kent Kramer

Not too fast... Many have supported Astromart in the past but their support has expired. Maybe it will be renewed maybe not. Lets try and get another pay to play thread going again. What has it been now a week?

Toyota advice needed

Posted By Kent Kramer

What's up doc? I would post the question over at edmunds.com. I am sure someone here will have an opinion but many there will. I never drove one but they consistently rank high in quality at delivery - fewer problems etc. If the price is right why wait. Something is "improved" every year. That way they sell more cars to folks who have to have the latest new new thing.

Good luck,

Kent
