I ordered and received confirmation about my Ovision worm on 1/10 of

this year. For those that have received their worms, what is the normal

wait time?



Thanks.

Partly they have to make them, and partly you're waiting for a clear

sky in France so they can test them. Ovision is also involved in

research in Antarctica (it is summer there) so I don't know if they

are out Penguin shopping. Anyhow I'd give it two months--but that's

just me. Greg N

I was told by Franck they would begin machining a new batch in

Feb...............



He said mine could be certified as early as Feb 15th but I have not

heard anything yet.





Patiently waiting............... :-)

That's what I figured. No hurry for me. I'm waiting on the gearboxes

anyway. Besides, I don't have anything planned till April new moon.

Not sure if I'm heading up to Cherry Springs or down to the Delmarva

star party.

I'm about 4 hours from either.

???? I don't see how you could get there in four hours.



I thought you lived in Boston. Cherry Springs SP takes place in June,

right? How does it compare in your book to Rockland County?



thanks

They are well into production.

Hello all,



I ordered a worm from Franck in December, and he e-mailed and said

they would not have another run of worms until January or February.

Since then I have e-mailed twice for an update and not received a

reply. Has anyone had contact with Franck lately?



Thanks,



Claude

Same here. I am glad to see the news update on the ovision website!

Hopefully they will ship soon.

Greg,



I live in Lancaster, Pa. It's 4-5 hours to Cherry Springs depending

on traffic, 3.5 hours to Delmarva, and 6 hours to Summer Star Party.



There are 2 official star parties there, one sponsored by the

Astronomical Society of Harrisburg in June this year and the other

sponsored by the Central Pennsylvania Observers, held in September.

Both are mandatory pre-registration.



As for how impressive Cherry Springs is compared to SSP? There is no

comparison! It's literally the darkest site on the east coast. It's a

religious experience.



The best thing about the site is it's open year round and only costs

$5/night. There is electric posts all over the field and it now has a

real bathroom. There are also a number of concrete pads.



But, there are no Walmarts or other shopping centers. the nearest gas

is 10 miles away and the nearest grocery store other than the

Greiners country store is a half hour drive, give or take. In other

words, pack carefully.



My current plans are:



April new moon: Delmarva Star Party

May (week before Memorial day) Cherry Springs. There is no official

event at this time but there will certainly be a lot of people there.

June: Cherry Springs Star Party

August: Summer Star Party

September: Black Forest Star Party.



Delmarva should be the acid test of the mods I plan to make ot the

mount. My back yard is light poluted but I should be able to get

enough done to check the mount for flaws.



Then it's off to Cherry Springs!



I've got the itch!



Tom P.

No PemPro yet.............I'm not sure if it can load a curve into Sky

Walker Servo. I have to check that before purchasing.



Yes, between my Ovision purchase (pending) and my recently acquired

TS-OAG9 Off Axis Guider I've brought a major

snow storm upon us!!!!!



This weekend looks warm and maybe, fingers crossed, clear........
