Dec 6, 2014 -

The new AG Optical Systems telescope is almost done! A 14.5" iDK, with carbon fiber tube. The optics are now complete and the telescope should be ready to be shipped in about one week. I'll be replacing the C11 with the new 14.5" telescope, quite an upgrade! Below is the telescope, still under construction at AG Optical Systems. The tube is about 18" in diameter, and I think about 3 ft long.

Just a reminder to everyone - all my images depend on dark skies. Help preserve the night skies by keeping lights at night to a minimum. All lighting should be downward facing. This will help everyone be able to enjoy the spectacular night skies. Learn more with this You Tube video by the McDonald Observatory.
