The SVS130 sextuplet astrographs are amazing! The lucky ones who got in early on this run won't be disappointed. We're already planning on the next run... get the details at http://www.stellarvue.com/stellarvue-svs130-astrograph/.
We are busy getting the TSL10 Super Tripods ready to ship. Here you can see Alex showing us what the aluminum looks like before and after machining. The TSL10 is available for pre-order here: http://www.stellarvue.com/stellarvue-tsl10-cherry-super-tripod/

Our best selling, top rated 102 Apo is assembled here on a more or less continual basis. Here we see Daniel busy in the machine shop today working on the carbon fiber tube. After we paint the interior, he removes material from the edges prior to bonding the carbon fiber to the aluminum end parts. [...]
On April 18 & 19 Stellarvue will be exhibiting at the Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) in Suffern, NY. We are co-hosting the OPT/Stellarvue theater this year at NEAF with excellent guest speakers. As usual, we will be selling some great certified pre-owned telescopes at deep discounts. We plan to introduce our new SVS130 130 mm f-5 [...]

The SVR102T-25SV continues to be our best seller ever. We have been offering this telescope at a whopping $300 off these past two months. That sale will cease at the end of this month. This is the last chance to get a marvelous price on the top rated 4" apo triplet. Also, you can order [...]
The SV102T-25SV sale is in full swing. We are limiting this sale to existing inventory. We are already assembling the next run of these telescopes but glass price has increased. So as soon as we sell out of telescopes in our existing inventory the next run of instruments will be sold at $300 higher. Based [...]
While waiting for more FPL53 glass, we decided to make the last of our 130EDT lenses into telescopes. Turns out we had a rather large number of these lenses in storage from when we discontinue it years ago. So we took advantage of the time our assembler Shelly had and she put together the last [...]
