Astro Physics 130MM Star ED f/8

Posted By Howard Lazarus

I just bought used a mint AP 130 Star ED f/8. I did pay alot for it being a 5.1" scope but when I looked at the wait times and prices on the new AP scopes this may be a good buy. Any comments on this 130MM Star ED f/8 from owners of same would really be appreciated/
Thanks

Case for IT M809

Posted By Howard Lazarus

Hi to all;
I recently got my Intes Micro M809 Mak Cass. What a wonderful scope and I would not review it here except to say if one wnated a superb scope ....this is the one.
That being said now I had to find a suitable case for the scope. Scopeguard makes good cases but are heavy and very pricey..in my view only overbuilt. So I searched around and found a company called ..Case Technologies.
They are on the internet and make lightweight as well as ATA cases for transport. I purchased from them and could not have been more pleased...strong case ..the same interior cushioniog as Scopeguard..same locks and handles..much lighter and half the cost.
Check it out for yourself...nice people..easy to work with.
