Hi everyone,

I just received my new C11S-ASGT with XLT coatings today.

I put the scope together and all looks good so far. Unfortunately, the scope brought some bad weather along with it as we may get hit by a Tropical Storm in South Florida on Monday and it will be cloudy and rainy here until Tuesday.

I was a bit concerned when I ordered the scope that it would be difficult to get the ota on the ASGT mount. I am happy to report that I had absolutely no problem placing the tube on the mount. In fact, it was rather easy. The ota has a handle on the back which makes it easy to hold.

I guess I will be testing the new scope sometime next week.

I will be posting my first light here once I can get the scope outside.

Here is a pic of the new scope and a future astronomer.

Clear skies,

Congratulations on the new scope. I wish I had one. Your future astronomer looks pretty happy with it too.
