    Business Personal Forum

    A business making astronomical equipment that is well known (for example, a major optical company or telescope making company or a company selling equipment on a regular basis) may request a forum here for the discussion of their product. No actually purchasing can occur on site but a link to their website is allowed and they may promote and sell and explain and clarify the product to their hearts content. Must be family friendly but after that the business is responsible for moderating their forum (I will moderate for respect and language). PM me if interested and I will set up the forum for you.
