I'll have more on each one of these items in the future- but right now
it's just a list.
The two most interesting things here are the Paramount and the
Epsilon. I waited over two years to get the Paramount- it
looks like it is milled out of a solid piece of aluminum- and the
integration with the software is wonderful. The
Epsilon is the primary optic, and it's a 300mm f/3.8 hyperbolic
astrograph. If this was a camera lens, the spec would be
1100mm f/3.8! It's a 16" diameter tube thats a little over
40" long and weighs 100 lbs.
I will have pictures here soon.
