Sales slowing?

Posted By David Ponder

Do you think scope sales are slowing? Seems very unusual that TV is having a scope sale into June. I sure hope TV is doing well!

TV101 on Skyview Pro?

Posted By David Ponder

I have owned the SVP and used it with a TV85. It will do you a fine job. I think it is more solid than my Vixen GP that I currently use with my ED103. TeleVue makes a dovetail adapter plate that fits the TV tube ring and will work with the SVP or Vixen type mounts...wish I was getting a 101 : (

Looking for suggestions on a 6" Newt

Posted By David Ponder

Check out Vixen's 6" f5 reflector, the R150S. I greatly prefer mine over my RV6 from the 70's.
Good luck,

iOptron MiniTower - looking for user experiences

Posted By David Ponder

I purchased the MiniTower. Everything worked fine, EXCEPT, it had the jitters. When the motors pulsed, the tube would jump, just like you bumped the tube with your hand. Returned it for another one, same longer a fan....I can't believe its advertised with a 25 pound capacity, LOL...

iOptron Minitower and C9.25

Posted By David Ponder

Based on my less than enjoyable experience with the MT and a C8, I would only expect dissappointment with the 9.25....
