Hello and welcome everyone. I am so happy with the donations and the support I have been getting from the Force and everyone who takes the time to visit here. A fundraiser you have to understand that 5 dollars is as appreciated as any high amount. We give what we can folks and each single dollar that comes into this fund with be rewarded with many thanks, As I am so proud of you all for the help you’ve given me. The telescope we will be aiming to buy is a brand spanking new (live video of sale) 14 inch Celestron Professional Telescope. Will have all the details up soon and once it is confirmed that the 9000.00 is completely raised I will place the order right away. GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!! We MIGHT not have to wait for a month after we raise the money. The delivery from California Celestron Company will take approx. 1 or two weeks. It could be as fast as that. Celestron is one of the most common and best quality telescopes known to date. I chose a telescope that is guaranteed for the life of the telescope. Buying a new scope will permit us to always have it repaired quickly if ever anything breaks on it. I will be upgrading from 1500 mm to over 3000mm WOW!!!!
Some companies boast that their telescopes give diffraction limited stars in the very center of the field of view. EdgeHD optics not only produce diffraction limited stars on axis, but maintain diffraction limited stars across the entire field of view of many of the most popular astrophotography cameras. Even at the very edge of a full frame camera chip, the EdgeHD 14″ delivers star sizes of only 1 arc second!
