I saw it for the first time at NEAF... beautifully made and a very nice solution for heavy cameras.

I think this device is new. Howard showed it to me at NEAF and was very excited about :-) It reminded me of an eyepiece projection arrangement. He was also able to show some of the other various adapters used for the QSI CCD camera body.



The other new product on display was a new, shorter case for the 130EDF Gran Turismo. It doesn't have the slots for the individual covers and it sure looks small and cute! I asked Marj about it, but it's so new that they hadn't determined pricing for it yet. Something to think about for those that intend to travel with their scope..
