Very nice indeed. It’s raining here and was waiting for someone to put them up.
Do you know if someone makes a full size ERF for the C8?

Hey Mark, altairastro don't seem to be responding on the Web. Are they still in business?

Excellent images John :bow

Ralph, my attempts to contact Altair have been unanswered as well. They did have a note on their website about moving and phone calls/shipping would be slow but been at least 2 weeks now.

They are definitely still in business, I would be patient and persistent. They have a FB group too.

What Mark said. I've had replies from Ian Knight @ Altair this week.
They are busy "doing stuff" at the mo, so replies can be delayed or prod them again.

From the replies my emails were going into their spam filter
"Re: ***SPAM*** Re: ***SPAM***"

I feel a Monty Python sketch coming on.

I'm pulling the trigger on an Altair 6" D-ERF in the morning.

Regards,
Ed

Late to the solar party - April 2023. Missed 5 cycles. Much to learn. Much to spend.

Boxed for 15 years - Zenithstar 80, Skywatcher 150 f8, Celestron C9.25.
Now all have seen the Sun and demand I spend further, without regret.
