Optic Wave Laboratories' facilites have been fully restored to operation!
We previously shut down the lab, for several months, in order to perform a thourough cleaning of the shop and machines and to perform several critical repairs.
In "celebration" of resuming full operations we are offering 50% off on all of our aluminum based coatings for astronomy. See the coating's page for more information.
We look forward to, once again, providing excellent service to you.
Thank you for your patience,
Thank you, thankyou, thank you, thank you!
The 12.5 f/6.3 mirror was everything I hoped it would be. I think I can now die a happy man. I've finally got a scope that'll knock the stuffing out of planets. I now know that even f/6.3 scopes need to be well collimated. The results of eyeball collimation vs. a precise collimation made all the difference. I went with the catseye tools and found them very easy to use and have been getting great results. I'm finding that a 12.5" scope is right at the limit of what I can handle. I glad I went for it. At 45 degrees I can view comfotably while standing. I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the result. I understand you're moving, good luck with everything.
