William Optics RedCat 51 APO - White?

Recommended Posts

RedCat telescopes are thin on the ground at the moment while William Optics struggle to meet demand. 

They say they have a small number of 'White' RedCats (a WhiteCat? ?) so if you have a Red RedCat on backorder and don't mind switching to a White model - please let us know. 

We found this photo on WO's Facebook page that shows the white model:

While I haven't got an order in, the white one does look good.

The next question though is...do they have a black cat.....that is bigger than my black cat ?

I do like the White Cat although the Red Cat loooks very nice as well.

Now if they come out with a Tabby Cat I will be impressed. ?

Tempted but must resist.

I straight up prefer the look of the 'White Cat'. If I was in the market I would choose that one.

We have pre-emptively ordered a handful (there aren’t many available) of white RedCats in addition to the red RedCats already incoming (we hope!). When they arrive we will offer them to those still waiting for red ones ?

Thank-you for your patience.

Ordered a red one to match my Star Adventurer, if I get White Cat I'll have to get a white Star Adventurer :grin:

My question is do you have the ZS81 on order at the same time? If so when?

The way things are going, there will be a need to form   a 'Red Cat Club.'
Sound good that. Well, it does to me anyway .
The Whites will need to apply for honorary membership :icon_biggrin:.

By the way, I hope that anomaly reported comes to nothing.

Does this mean they will become collectors' items and end up being worth 20x more than a boring old red one?

The few white RedCats we had were dispatched to customers yesterday. Whether they be Red or White we (we will happily accept either!) we are back to waiting on William Optics for another delivery. They say some will arrive early-April (Red, we think). 

HTH, 

Steve

My preference is the white if I could afford one, it looks more professional to me.

I think it is my preference too.

Opened one yesterday to make some photos for our website ?

The concept is interesting, but it should be scaled up. A 350mm f5 (70mm lens) with the same body for example.
