  1. If you don’t mind reviewing it @RayD we’ll happily send you one You would be doing us a favour because I confess nobody at FLO has used one yet (we added it to our website only last week because customers requested it). If you review one we will then write a new product description based on your findings. Steve
  2. The Primaluce Lab EAGLE CORE Control Unit is now available from FLO Control a DSLR and guide camera from your smartphone or tablet via WiFi. No need for a laptop.
  3. Speaking with WO, it sounds like our first delivery of RedCat telescopes will arrive around the end of this month / early next We have arranged for one to be sent to us sooner so @RayD can kick its tyres. Steve

  10. None taken FWIW if a third-party reducer/flattener were necessary or desirable we would seriously consider stocking one. Steve
  11. Some of the comments in this thread suggest a problem with the telescope or its reducer but our experience here at FLO suggests the opposite. Since launch the Sky-Watcher Evostar 72ED Pro has been hugely popular, outselling even the long established 80ED Pro. So far we have experienced only two customer returns (one for dust behind a lens element and the other because the customer believed his draw tube was misaligned). As for the 0.85x Reducer/Flattener, only one return. My colleague, Grant, is getting along nicely with his and there are some nice images posted here at SGL. From where we sit the telescope and reducer are performing well and owners are pleased. We certainly haven't noticed a need for third-party reducer/flatteners. Is it pixel-peeping (the 72ED Pro is a £265 doublet) or are we missing something? Steve
  12. Welcome to SGL FLO has never stocked Altair cameras but we understand they are manufactured by a company called ToupTek in China. As far as we can tell their 183c model uses the same Sony sensor as the ZWO ASI 183MC, which is a good match for the RedCat. A while ago we added a calculator to our Astronomy Tools website that calculates a camera’s suitability for use with a telescope. We will know more about connecting cameras when the telescope has launched. HTH, Steve
  13. It won’t be delayed. You will have one as soon as they arrive (it will be mine after you are finished with it) Steve
  14. The new William Optics RedCat 51 is already selling remarkably well! This is nice (speaking as a retailer) but we are growing concerned because the telescope hasn't yet been released and, if sales continue at this pace, our entire first delivery will sell out before it arrives! If other retailers are experiencing the same then I think there might be some delays while WO's production catches up with demand. At this stage we can only promise to dispatch RedCat telescopes as soon as we are able in first-come-first-served order. Thank-you for your patience. Steve
