Have not heard any rumors or of any telescope production in a while, are the GTs being made now or 140s or 160s? If the latter, how many centuries back does the waiting list extend?

Cheers

The RHA is in production and being shipped out (a friend in Germany just got his) .... the AP130GT is still in production with one more run (for now) scheduled and which will be followed by slightly larger aperture refractors which will mean the AP140 and/or AP160.

I think it goes back to anyone who couldn't get a new scope from Alvan Clark and Sons before they closed up shop! grin
