I just received a notice from Astronomics that there is now a sale going on with Lightbridge telescopes. The sale price on the ten inch is $599, the 12 inch is going for $849 and the 16 inch is still on sale for $1799. The sale goes until September 15th.
Not long ago, I had a theft of my LS 8, a 11 inch SCT on a computerized equatorial mount, and some other things out of my storage unit. Even though I did not expect as much cooperation from my insurance company as I got, they paid be enough to purchase a 12 inch Lightbridge and an LX 70 8R reflector. My deductibles were high enough that I did not have enough to go back with computerized scopes and after the theft experience, I really did not want to do that for a while.
The two scopes should be here by maybe Wednesday this coming week.
I will let you know about these scopes, what I am doing with them, and what I think of them.
