The 10 inch D&G refractor was in need of some renovations.
Please note: Amateur Astronomers of Pittsburgh own this telescope. I found issues with this telescope mount which was purchased new from Joe Nastasi at Parrallax Instruments. Joe did not fix theses issues and I continued an investigation on this matter. The organization spent $ 25,000 on this Parrallax HD 300 mount which is junk. Joe does not appear to be a man of his word to support his product.
However the Amateur Astonomers of Pittsburgh decieded to have me expelled from the organization in my attempts to help them fix the problems encountered!!
I do not support their organization any longer due to the politics of Tom Reiland of the AAAP.org or members of the organization who do not understand nor believe in the fairness that the telescopes & their appropiate mountings should work to a professional standard or be brought up to standard. Remember we spent 25K on this and it should work properly!! - Al Paslow
