Alan, Your interview on the History Channel was my inspiration to get into astrophotography. I am ready to invest in my first high end refractor. I know you use the Borg 125SD. I am torn between this scope and a Tak FSQ106. If you had the choice, Which one would you choose. I know you are a busy man, but any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

Jeff Snider

I have a customer who wants ATS to build him a Robofocus bracket for his VC200L. I understand that you have built one of these and I was wondering if you had spec. sheets or drawings. Got your name from Mikesastro.

Your astrophotos are remarkable. I was amazed by your h-alpha picture of the Horsehead region. Only a wide angle color exposure by Malin, in my previous experience, shows the extent of the H-II region excited by Sigma as dramatically as this image. The Helix is spectacular. I think your use of the external helical focuser has made your stars look sharper than MOST pictures done with digital imaging using an SCT -- at least the ones I've seen on the Net. I also was impressed by many of the widefield shots with the ED80.
