Re: 1978 orange tube C-8

Posted By Paul Webb

Billy, I could be wrong but Special Coatings were added and an option at one time with those older C-8's. The coatings were added for the benefit of photography only. You should not see a discernible difference visually. Enjoy the scope! Paul

No Baby Blues with this Brandon!

Posted By Paul Webb

Congrats Andy! I had a couple of theses scopes in the past. One was complete with all the original accessories and the gray hard case. It may be the very same scope ! In focus objects had no color and was a nice portable scope too! Enjoy in clear, steady skies my friend! Paul

Andy, My best guess is an 80's vintage Koenig and I do not remember a leather bag supplied with them either. Paul

Message Problems?

Kevin Conod said:

Not sure if this is appropriate place to ask, but has anyone else experienced a major problem with messages here on Astromart? I placed a classified ad last week and I was surprised that I got a lot of views but no offers or messages regarding the item. I figured no one was interested but then last night at about 9:30 EDT I got a flood of email messages from Astromart stating that I had private messages from the past several days. But when I go to my Inbox there is only one recent message!
Don't know about your situation but I responded three times to an ad yesterday early in the post and have not heard anything from the dude. Why post an ad then do not respond? Go figure. Paul

Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017

Posted By Paul Webb

Well, hopefully will be here in my front yard. Center line pretty close,but have plan B to keep an eye out on the weather and drive west if necessary. I have only seen one other total eclipse, the 1991 event from the Big Island and nearly missed it due to clouds. I had other amateurs to photograph the event, while I took in every minute naked eye and with a spotting scope. Nothing like it! Paul
