The NEAF display this year will feature the 3600GTO "el Capitan" with the 305mm f12.5 Maksutov-Cassegrain (black tube) that we introduced last year and our new 305mm f3.8 Riccardi-Honders Astrograph (white tube). Those of you who attended Roland's talk at NEAF last year will recall that he described the attributes of this new design at that time. You can also see our Traveler in the middle of the two 12" instruments to highlight the potential of using "el Capitan" as an imaging platform for a number of scopes. Marj Christen and Howard Hedlund are putting the finishing touches on this setup at Astro-Physics just before it was packed for shipment.
