Hello

I watched the youtube videos from the vendor and it seems to be a nice product, but has any one actually used it and obtained good results? Specifically I am thinking about getting one for my EdgeHD - does it work with the EdgeHD, considering it has a flattener in place?

Is it worth the high price tag?
Does anyone want sell his/her's?

Thanks

Henry

I bought one and found it very useful. A must if you have an SCT. I used it extensively during my C11 mods (http://www.astropic.net/astro/C11/article.sub&productid=1)
Yes it is worth the money and some.
Nope, not selling mine. :)

Good luck getting a response from Hotech - I've been waiting 3 weeks to hear back on the enquiries I sent them.

Interesting, I had a very good experience with them. Got a reply the next day when I asked about my flattener.

Have one. Enabled me to fix off axis image problems in my c11. Worth the money, won't sell mine.
Cheers

Thanks guys

Like Patrick I could not get a reply from Hotech. A bit hesitant to spend that kind of money with no support. But these independent testimonials are reassuring.

Finally got a response from Hotech - $145.00 USD for the 2" crosshair laser collimator, and $72.00 USD for postage. (Insert profanity of choice here). Obviously highway robbery is not only permitted but actively encouraged in the USA.
