As of July 1, 2011, Alnitak Astrosystems is wholly owned by Optec, Inc, a long-time manufacturer of accessories for the astro-imager. Pete Kalajian, co-founder of Alnitak Astrosystems will remain involved in the sales and marketing of AA’s products, but all the manufacturing and shipping will take place at Optec’s plant in Michigan.
We at AA are really excited by the sale. Jeff and Tina Dickerman are great people who have a fantastic commitment to the business and are well-known for their customer service. We are confident that the entire AA line will continue to be a boon to astroimagers everywhere.
Optec brings strong engineering and manufacturing experience to the table, and we are sure that our products will continue to meet the high standards that our customers have come to expect.
Stop by and see Pete and Jeff at AIC in California this November.
