Re: 14"F/4.5 APM Mak newt. Image
- Hi Markus
As I am getting a great TMB 7 incher in approximatley a month, (my
wifey credits have all been eaten up with that wonderfull purchase,
and the fine work you and Thomas are producing for me), I
irresposibly sent the image over to my twin brother who promptly fell
off his chair.
As he is currently selling his C14 and William Optics mount/pier and
has sold his 10" Newt, (just got in a AP1200 with a PWT Pier), he is
looking for his next scope.
That shot set the bar for what he is looking for and immediately
asked, "How may one go about acquiring this fine piece of
technology", (not exactly his words but close).
So, any comments that I may wet his appetite further with?

The image certainly is spectacular. But, it also is authentic. Your
friends are incorrect. Moretus is near the pokle so that the image
from earth is indeed on an angle. Check out other images of Moretus
and you will see what I mean. Spectacular? Yes! Spaceship-like? Yes.
But, it was taken from earth! A testimony to todays imaging
capabilities given excellent optical equipment, excellent seeing and
someone who knows how to use today's software programs.
