I can't believe I've only just seen this thread!

Thank you to everyone for your kind words

I've been occupied developing a couple of new products this year, items that are exciting for me and hoping that they will equally excite many others. My energies have been focused on this and my new Gondwana Telescopes website has been a little neglected. Hoping to change this very soon.

Thanks again everyone This whole GT thing comes entirely from my experiences with scopes, and yes my sketching too as I strive to develop designs that are silky smooth to use. Those little projects I post here are also products of the creative process. And thank you to those of you who have given me the necessary feedback and help, both harsh and inspiring, to keep me true.

Congratts Alex, that is a very well thought out and executed design, mate, very accomplished at what you do & hope it takes you to new heights - higher than the Hubble, and that's without fans
Well done and a credit to the write up as well, very enjoyable read

& cheers Kevin for the 'unsubscriber's link
