    Great to hear!

    It's nice to hear a story, such as this, that ends up with a good outcome.

    I've always had very good luck with Amazon. Rarely do I ever have an issue. And if I do, they are very good about taking care of a problem.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Had experience with my CGEM setup when it shipped, received tripod, but the ota remained on truck, and actually started backtracking back to the shipper....Needless to say UPS had me in their warehouse at 5am going up and down the manager asking millions of quesitons on driver...Was not a happy camper, took 1 extra day to get the ota to me!

    Default What are you wearing? ( when observing)

    So far my scope has been in the back yard only.. this will not be my star party outfit

    I have found my favorite attire is:
    • T-shirt - loose
    • Favorite Pajama bottoms
    • Pair of wool lined open toe and heal slippers I had for years but never used in the house.


    I learned last night that my daughter calls one of the few places I can see polaris in the yard for when my wedge shows up.. "The Spider Pit" I may have to rethink the slippers
