Hi Daniel!

Perhaps you would also like to address the copyright issues on the submitted pictures (as discussed in Cloudynights Forum).

Thank you!

Cheers!

Yes, ok, and thank you for asking...

In fact that is a non-issue, because the copyright of any pic lies with the owner of the pic itself, and WO only shows it on its website with the owner's permission.

Unless the owner authorizes us otherwise, the picture will not be used otherwise.

Hope this clarifies it!

Thanks to all administrators, moderators and other users for their welcome! Feel free to write to us at any time for any questions.

Dear Daniel,

Thanks for making it clear!

I also noticed that you do not have any distributors in Taiwan? Is it possible to buy WO products in Taipei?

Cheers!

Dear Tachyon (? Sorry I do not know your name!),

we do have some ten vendors in Taiwan, of course!
We have only 1 listed in the new websites, but only because we are still updating them as you noticed; if you want a not-complete list check our old website www.optics.com.tw, we will put an updated selected list on www.william-optics.com.tw shortly. Also, in Taiwan is also possible to purchase from us directly.

Dear MooEy,

Even though it was an excellent product, the GT-1 was discontinued last year due to low margins and high costs (it was priced TOO good for customers! That's why it sold out very fast). You can still find some second-hand ones on classifieds or places like astromart... You can also check our yahoo group or the GT-1 yahoo group...
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/William-Optics/
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GT-ONE/

You might come up with some bargains.

Since lots of people gave us very good feedback for it, we are studying the possibility of making something similar in the future.

hi Daniel, a big welcome to williamoptics. please send my highest regards to William and David Yang.

i saw on a cloudynight report that WO is coming up with a binoview-refractor. any early news on the binoviewer or the bino-refractor package for us?

i just asked opt.com to quote me a z66 semi-apo. personally, it's a pity that i have to buy WO products from overseas (mostly opt or hk) instead of your local malaysian dealer whose prices are often significantly higher.
